Community groups are how we do life at the Church at Martinsburg. In our church, community groups are where a majority of the ministry takes place, as these groups happen in the context of your day-to-day life. This includes groups for our middle school and high school students as well.
Students are encouraged to worship with their families during one of our Sunday morning Worship Gatherings and then come back for Group that evening. The Student Community Group meets each Sunday evening from 6:00PM to 7:30PM at 50 Monroe St.
The Student Community Group is a place for students (6th-12th graders) to grow in their knowledge of God and His Word with other students who are in similar life stages and share similar life experiences. It is our desire that students not only learn about the Bible on Sunday, but apply the Bible to their lives each day in ways that are specific to them.
Our goal is to:
- Provide a fun and safe environment to grow as passionate worshippers of Christ
- Be propelled to carry out His mission in the Panhandle and around the world
On Sunday evenings, trained and background screened student workers utilize large group teaching times and small group discussion times to help students understand the saving power of the gospel and how lives our transformed from God’s mercy. The church uses The Gospel Project for Students to help them see the how all Scripture gives testimony to Jesus Christ. This study will take teenagers on a journey through the storyline of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. Along the way, students will discover the big picture of what God has been doing throughout redemptive history, and what it means for them. Students will also learn 99 essential doctrines of our faith and why these doctrines are important to their daily lives.
The teenage years are hard but with a foundation on the Bible and a heart transformed by the Gospel, students can know what they believe and how that changes how they act.
