If you’ve read our two earlier posts on our Middle School Only and High School Only “Back 2 School Bash” events, then you know what’s up! We love to throw a huge party for all the teens in our surrounding community. We don’t publicize it except for word of mouth by our students. God has used our students so greatly over the last few years, that we’ve had to go to 2 B2SB events as Middle School Only and High School Only. So here you go, here’s our event video of what all happened at our CBSM B2SB! Oh and by the way, FLAME will be coming to Capshaw Baptist on Wednesday, October 5!

CBSM VIDEO: BACK 2 SCHOOL BASH 2010


The purpose of our B2SB is to love on all the students in our community by throwing all this for free and to get as many students into our worship service as possible to preach a super strong gospel message. We had a blast…and many were saved!

FYPO – For Youth Pastors Only: CBSM Back to School Bash 2010 Report

PRAISE REPORT: Over 250 teens attended. Over 60 brand new visitors. And at least 7 teens SAVED that night!

If you’re researching how to do a great Back to School Bash, I’d love to give you our 2 cents on how God blessed us with a powerful one! We first tried doing Back to School Bash’s on Saturdays. We tried inflatables, we tried worship services, we tried no worship services, we tried a huge private pool, we tried to keep middle and high school together, and we tried separating them. But this year, everything just seemed to come together so well.

We planned our Back 2 School Bash on the 3rd Wednesday that the teens had been back in school. That allowed the word to get out and anticipation to build. We decided to try it on a Wednesday this year because we are a “Simple Church and Student Ministry” so we want all of our events to surround the most important thing we do…weekly worship services. We also did it on a Wednesday because we wanted to show all of our guests and visitors EXACTLY what we do every Wednesday in our worship service. We didn’t bring in a guest band. We didn’t bring in a guest speaker. We didn’t do anything different. We wanted to show them EXACTLY who we are, what we do, why we do it, and what they can expect every Wednesday. Continue reading

TEXTimonies: text-messaged testimonies from our Back 2 School Bash

B2SB 09bThank you all for praying for our Back 2 School Bash!  The plan was to get as many teenagers as possible to come and be a part of this so that we could give them a free event to show them how much we love them, and to introduce them to Jesus or encourage them in Him. 

To be totally honest with you, I was somewhat depressed when we only had about 75 middle schoolers show up to play on the inflatables and 75 highschoolers show up for the pool part.  We were expecting about double that.  Don’t get me wrong…I was so glad that each of those students came, and I was so proud of all of our CBSM students inviting their friends.  We were just expecting many more.

Well, God totally turned the tables on me.  We had pretty much every student and more come to our worship service that evening from 6 – 8pm.  The room filled up with 150 students and the excitement was thick.  We kicked it off with a video and a game just like every Wednesday night because we wanted to show them exactly who we are and what we do every week.  The point of this whole event was to point them to Christ and to show them how much fun we have worshipping Him every Wednesday night as a student ministry! 

From the first verse of the first praise and worship song, we knew it was going to be a special night.  By the second or third song, nearly every hand was raised toward heaven and every voice was nearly screaming praise, honor, and worship to Jesus.  God was gracious enough to let me preach for 45 minutes to these students, and they all attentively listened with respect to God’s Word.  We sang two last songs and the students totally blew the roof off the place as they were shouting praises to Jesus!  Not only were we instantly encouraged in how much God used the night to glorify His Son, but text messages quickly started blowing my phone up.  I just wanted to share with you a few that will bless your socks off….just to hear what God did through our amazing night of worship at our Back to School Bash:   Continue reading

B2SB: Back 2 School Bash 2009

If you’re a high schooler (9th – 12th), imagine yourself chillin at one of the coolest pools around on a hot summer day with all of your friends and meeting new ones.  We’re not talking about one of those lame kiddie pools, but we’re talking about The Sunset Swim Club in Athens with diving boards, water slide, ginormous lay-out areas, basketball court, volleyball court, etc.  If you’re a middle schooler (7th – 9th), imagine yourself romping around on the coolest inflatable games able to be found…such as: climbing mountains, slipping down water slides, stretching out on the bungee run, sticking to the fly wall, playing a little dodgeball, and getting your jump-on in the moonwalk.  Hard to imagine?  Then we dare you to add onto that a supper of barbecue, pizza, and hotdogs.  And then we’ll close off the night with a sweet all-student worship service, and a drawing for prizes at the very end.  These aren’t the cheesy prizes you find at some skee-ball arcade, but we’re talking gift cards to your favorite stores and restaurants around, iTunes cards, and a “choose your own” grand prize: a Wii, an iPod touch, a flat-screen TV, a Blue-Ray player, etc.    Continue reading
