Here is our SMT (Student Ministry Team) Set-Up for Fall 2012. Our SMT’s exist because teenagers having a place to serve often doesn’t. We don’t just want our teens to worship and do small groups together, but we also want every one of our teens to have an opportunity to obey God in serving Jesus through His church together (Ephesians 4:1-6). So here’s what our SMT’s look like this semester. For the most part, they will all meet on Sunday nights from 6:30 – 7:30 unless noted otherwise. They are for all of our 6th – 12th graders.
CBSM’s Promotion Sunday will be this Sunday, August 19th.
All of our students will move up into their new small groups with new small group leaders to disciple and mentor them starting this Sunday! This is the perfect Sunday to get involved. All our our new small group students will get to know their new small group leaders, eat some breakfast together, meet all of the other teens in their small groups, and even set some personal/spiritual goals for this year.
Our upcoming 6th graders will finally join us for our CBSM worship services, small groups, SMT’s, and events starting this Sunday!
Our new SMT’s (Student Ministry Teams) will begin this Sunday night at 6:30pm!
Our new combined worship service for both middle and high schoolers on Wednesday nights will start next week!
I could not be more excited about all that God has in store this upcoming school year for CBSM! 2012 Small Groups Start Leaders Letter
Every fall and spring we reset our SMTs by allowing our teens to pick new ones. We want to give every student an opportunity to use their spiritual gifts, serve Jesus, serve the church, and serve the community by putting them on an SMT that is perfect for them. This year, we have 28 SMT’s total for our high schoolers and middle schoolers. I also go over what spiritual gifts are, how to discover which gifts God has given you, and how to use your giftedness for Jesus’ glory in His church. So here are the SMT breakdowns and the quick lesson on spiritual giftedness.

Here is our worksheet of all the SMTs that we’re offering this spring. Students, you can serve on the same team you did for the fall. You have first choice. If you want to change teams, you will be allowed to join any team that will still have room. Check this worksheet to see which team best fits your spiritual giftedness (SHAPE).

Here is a list of all of our Student Ministry Teams, when they meet, what they do, and who their leaders are. Our SMTs are a vital part of our ministry…as we seek to be a ministry and not just a service. So many teenagers today are bored to death or preoccupied with so many things that just don’t eternally matter for the glory of Jesus. So we encourage ALL of our students to serve Jesus through their church by using their spiritual gifts on one of our SMTS. Here’s the list. SMT Fall 2010 Breakdown (doc)
