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 2:30PM to 4:00PM 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. During the fall semester, the Student Group will be working through the Truth Project curriculum. This Focus On The Family study is an excellent starting point for looking at life from a biblical perspective. Each lesson discusses in great detail the relevance and importance of living the Christian worldview in daily life.
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.
