Regularly Scheduled Events

Youth Worship

Join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM for this youth-oriented worship experience. This is a time for 7th-12th graders to learn from the Bible, enjoy some fun entertainment, hang out with some awesome adults, and ultimately begin doing life together. We meet on the youth floor. Follow the signs to find us! We hope to see you there!

InHouse

Craving connection? This is where you should start! Our InHouse groups meet twice per month on Sunday evenings during the school year. Middle school (6-8 grades) meets at the church from 5:30 -7:30 PM, and high school (9-12 grades) meets from 6:30-8:30 PM in people’s homes. At InHouse, we are here to provide you with as many answers as we can about the characteristics of God. We will take you through scripture and show you how God responds in situations just like yours. Each InHouse group is split up by grades and gender. Dinner is provided for high school and snacks for middle school.  So, bring your appetite and all your life questions!

BigHouse

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

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

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.

Retreats

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. Retreats are open to 7-12th graders.

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.

Middle School Mission Trip

Yes, you read that correctly. Middle School Mission Trip. Well, technically, it wasn’t a trip because we stayed in Greenville (other than our fun day at Carowinds). However, there were definitely middle school students doing mission work all week long!…
