Student's Ministry

October 13, 2016 mray Blog

The student ministry at East Gadsden Baptist Church offers many great opportunities for our students to be involved different ministry challenges. The student ministry offers Bible study through Sunday school and studies on Wednesday night each week.
Mission trips are a big part of the student ministry as well. In the summer of 2010 a group journeyed to the Oneida Baptist Institute (A Southern Baptist boarding school) and did some great mission work for a week. The young people did some tough manual labor jobs that saved the school thousands of dollars. In 2011 we combined our youth choir summer tour with a mission trip to Seagrove Beach, Florida and DeFuniak Springs, Florida. The youth did vacation Bible school in the morning and sang in different places at night and have done this in different churches.
One of our most powerful ministries is our trip to the Hannah Home. Hannah Home is a shelter for abused moms and their children. At Christmas our youth take all the families and divide them among themselves. Then our youth and their families provide Christmas gifts for these precious children and their moms. We have lunch, then the youth choir sings, and then the entire room is filled with gifts to be opened by the families in the shelter. This gives us a great opportunity to present the gospel to these moms who are hurting from abuse mentally and physically.
Retreats are also a big part of our student ministry. We take our biggest retreat in January as we travel to Gatlinburg for a weekend of intense Bible study, as well as, great fun and fellowship. Other retreats are scheduled to learn new musicals such as our Christmas Musical.
As you can see there are so many areas for young people to participate in our church so I know there is a place for your teen. East Gadsden Baptist Church loves these kids in the student ministry and they will love you and yours as well. Our goal is to make strong disciples for Jesus of our youth and we constantly encourage them to fulfill the great commission by witnessing to their friends and family.
East Gadsden Baptist Church is a great place to call home especially for today’s teens seeking to find their place in His service.
