Youth Ministry Values

Our youth programs are consistently based on Scripture and United Methodist doctrine.

Fun

We create a community of believers in an enthusiastic, joyful, loving environment.

Inclusive

We value a community that is intentional about welcoming others and building relationships.

Missional

We are dedicated to serving and teaching others.

Dynamic

We provide an atmosphere that is vibrant, spirit-filled, and exciting with a variety of programs and ministries.

Focused on Developing Student Leaders

We develop our youth through training and opportunities that empower them to become Christian leaders.

Walk With Christ #13- WWC is a student-led, spiritual retreat that is held each spring at the Downtown Campus.

Regularly Scheduled Events

Youth Worship (Virtual due to Covid-19 Restrictions)

This youth-oriented worship experience is normally held on  Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM, but we are going virtual due to Covid-19 restrictions. Traditionally, this is a time for 6th-12th graders to learn from the Bible, enjoy some fun entertainment, hang out with some awesome adults, and ultimately begin doing life together. We normally meet on the youth floor. But for the time being, Sunday Morning Youth Worship will be a virtual devotional sent out via email on Sunday Mornings. Worship with us online!

BigHouse (Postponed due to Covid-19 Restrictions)

This big group time is all about having fun! This is a great way to introduce your friends to B-Street Youth. BigHouse meets approximately once per month during the school year on Sunday evening. Middle school (6-8 grade) meets from 5:30-7:30 PM and high school meets from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. A light dinner is included.

Wednesday Bible Study (Postponed due to Covid-19 Restrictions)

This Bible study is for senior high students who want to dig a little deeper into the Bible. Bring your critical thinking skills, doubts, questions, and curiosity! This group meets from 6:30 – 7:30 PM during the school year on the youth hall.

Parent Hot Topic (Postponed due to Covid-19 Restrictions)

These parent meetings offer an opportunity to hear from experts on pressing issues with teens. Parent Hot Topics are offered several times throughout the school year on Sunday nights from 6:00 – 7:30 PM.

Each year, B-Street youth goes mobile for two long weekends. The Fall Retreat happens in October or November, and the Ski trip happens over a holiday weekend in the winter. We also host Walk with Christ, a student-led spiritual retreat each year over a weekend at the Downtown Campus. Walk With Christ normally happens in February or March.

Summer Mission Trips

Both high school and middle school participate in week-long mission trips during the summer. Middle school focuses on the Greenville area and high school travels out of Greenville. Each trip is planned with service, worship, fellowship, and fun in mind.
