CBSM High Schoolers (9th – 12th grades) will be hitting up San Diego, CA for a seriously awesome mission trip. For the past few years, we’ve gone to San Diego to team up with Pastor Chuck Rheam and CenterPointe Church. They are a church plant right around 5 years old. We get to go in, do a VBS (Vacation Bible School) for all the kids in their community, share Jesus with them, and then just watch God do huge things in their lives. The trip will cost around $750 (including airfare and everything). So make sure to get this date reserved on your summer calendar, CBSM High School. We’d love to have you go with us. We’ll get you more information real soon!

New CBSM Middle School and High School Ministries

I literally can barely believe this is happening! God has grown our student ministry to the point that we don’t have any other choice. We absolutely have to go to 2 ministries within CBSM. Our events, worship services, etc. have gotten too big to handle. So now, we are having to move to 2 ministries so that we can specialize in each age group. That’s right…its time for CBSM Middle School and High School Ministries. Oh, and by the way, we’re not dividing or splitting up these ministries. But we are multiplying into these two ministries. That’s key wording for this awesome move of God! Here’s how its going to breakdown.

Middle School (6th – 8th Grades):
Beginning August 7th: Small Groups at both 9:00am and 10:30am on Sunday mornings.
Beginning August 14th: Worship Service at 6:30-7:45pm on Sunday nights.
Beginning August 14th: SMT’s (Student Ministry Teams) at 6:30-7:45pm on Wednesday nights.
BACK TO SCHOOL BASH: Sun, August 21st! 4 – 6pm: Tons of Inflatable Games, Food, Etc. 6:30 – 8:00pm: Epic Worship Service.

High School (9th – 12th Grades):
Beginning August 7th: Small Groups at both 9:00am and 10:30am on Sunday mornings.
Beginning August 14th: SMT’s (Student Ministry Teams) at 6:30-7:45 on Sunday nights.
Beginning August 17th: Worship Service at 6:30-8:00pm on Wednesday nights.
BACK TO SCHOOL BASH: Wed, August 24th! 6-7:30pm: Epic Worship Service. 7:30-10pm: Bonfire, Food, Chillin with Friends.

So there you go. There’s our breakdown. We can’t wait to see everything that God is going to do in our lives, ministry, and church through this growth. Keep focused on Jesus through all this, reach the lost, invite the unchurched, and lets attack hell with the truth of the gospel!
