3. Combined Worship Service this Wednesday PM. We have decided to combine our middle and high school ministries back together for Wednesday night worship services over the fall semester. This Wednesday we will kick it all off with a free cookout for all 6th – 12th graders from 6:00 – 6:25pm. We will crank up our combined worship service at 6:30pm, and there I will explain what all we have in store for our upcoming fall semester!

4. Back 2 School Bash: Wed, August 29, 2012. Our B2SB is one of the biggest events we do all year. The purpose is to bring as many teenagers as possible to CBSM at one time.

CBSM’s 2012 Graduating Senior Class


CBSM’s 2012 senior class’s presence will be missed as well as their absence will be felt. God has used them in incredible ways to be leaders for the rest of our students in worship, relationships, serving, missions, events, etc. I literally can’t believe they’re leaving us, but I’m so excited about their futures for Jesus! They are entering into the world with an understanding of the gospel, faith in Christ, and a passion to live for Him. Watch out world!

2012 SMT’s: Student Ministry Teams of CBSM


Our SMT’s are teams that CBSM students join in order to do ministry on a weekly basis. We strongly believe in spiritual giftedness, serving, and ministering through the church and for the glory of Jesus! We believe that God has given every teenager gifts, talents, and abilities that they are naturally good at. Through salvation, God redeems those gifts, talents, and abilities to for the use of His kingdom (Eph 4:1-11). We believe that every teenager should be using their giftedness specifically through the church (Eph 4:12). Lastly, we believe that every gift, talent, and ability should be used fully for the glory of Jesus (Eph 4:13-16). We want our teens to be bored if they aren’t serving Jesus in some specific way that reflects their giftedness. Lastly, We want our teens to understand that our ministry will not be as excellent, fruitfull, smooth, or cool without them using their giftedness for Jesus through CBSM.

Every semester we go over “how to discern their spiritual giftedness” with our students, and we announce all the different teams that they would get to serve on. They pick their teams, make their commitment to serve, and get on board for the rest of the semester.

Here are the 2 documents of our SMT’s for both Middle and High School

KTL 2012: Training Teens to be Preachers and Teachers


“KTL” is CBSM’s opportunity to training teenagers on how to preach and teach the Word of God. For whatever crazy reason, God has blessed us with teenagers who are called into ministry, guys who are called to be pastors, girls who feel called to be missionaries, and both who feel called to simply teach God’s Word throughout their lives in different settings. This could be Bible studies, Sunday school classes, discipleship classes, or even family devotions at home when they become fathers and mothers. Whatever the calling, we want to equip them to know God’s Word, interpret God’s Word rightly, apply it correctly, and learn how to deliver it for people to hear clearly.

KTL will meet on Sunday nights from 8:00 – 9:30pm. Our main sessions over about 3 months will be how to see Christ clearly in each passage, how to see the gospel centered in each passage, how to discern the main truth from each passage, how to get the main application out of each passage, how to illustrate a lesson well, and how to introduce and conclude when you’re teaching and preaching.

Every study must fill out a KTL application form, turn it in, and be accepted. We will begin this Sunday night at 8:00pm and meet in the student building.
