Love God, Love Others, Live Loved
The student ministry at Bear Creek Bible Church is for anyone in 7th to 12th grade. Here, we’re seeking to help students understand what it looks like to be a Christ-follower in their context, as well as prepare them for the next stage of life. A phrase we sometimes use is “love God, love others, live loved”. It stems from the Great Commandment in Matthew 22 where Jesus tells us that loving God and others sums up what God desires for us. We also add the “live loved” portion, because it’s important for us to remember, and live in light of, the truth that once we place our faith in Christ as Savior, God’s love for us is unchanging, unconditional, and unbreakable! This love then stirs that desire deep within us to love Him and others in return. We’re not simply interested in knowing facts about God, we want to know Him, root our identity in what He says is true of us, and be a part of what He’s doing in the DFW area and beyond.
Current 7th– 12th graders
what, when and where
Daybreak: Youth Area // 9:50am – 10:45am
On Sunday mornings, students in 7th-12th grade get together in the youth area for teaching rooted in the Bible that helps them see how Christianity effects everyday life and what it means to live for God’s glory and Kingdom. This teaching is driven by our 8 core traits and a variety of stand alone topics along with the occasional guest speaker.
Live: Youth Area // 2nd Sunday of the month 5:30 PM – 7 PM
On the 2nd Sunday of the month, we gather together as a large group with all of the students in 7th-12th grade. We normally have worship through singing with a short devotion, games, food and drinks in an effort to create an atmosphere where students can come and have fun while being challenged to grow in their faith and invest in relationships with friends.
Lifegroups: BCBC // 7:00pm – 8:30pm
We have our small groups (Lifegroups) on Thursday nights to allow and encourage our students to serve at AWANA on Wednesday nights. Our Lifegroups are rooted in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 that says, “We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too.” In these groups, we study and seek to apply what Scripture says. We also “do life together” by sharing about our lives, encouraging one another, rejoicing together, and supporting each other when life gets difficult.
*These Thursday meetings typically happen only during the school year except for December and May at BCBC. Please join our e-mail list to stay up to date on official start and end dates as well as any dates we may have to cancel or choose to meet away from BCBC.
