Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you… 1 Peter 5:6 ESV
Purpose of Calvary Bible Youth
Calvary Bible Youth (CBY) exists for 7th to 12th grade students and (with the) 6th grade ‘tweens’ join us for Sunday School at 9 a.m. on Sundays.
Our goal is to encourage students to lead a God-centered and spiritually discerning live. We aim to support and reinforce the principles that are already being taught in a Christ-centered home.
Through regular Bible study, special activities, service opportunities, and short term missions’ trips we seek to promote connections among the youth, mentoring opportunities with volunteers and a lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. Our overall goal is to support them in their spiritual growth and equip them to serve God with their whole heart.
Opportunities to Reach In, Up & Out
Sunday School 9am
6th grade joins 7th-12th graders in the CBC Parsonage from September to May. You can join in at any time throughout the year. (*We break Sunday School during the summer months, June-August.)
Sunday Worship 10am
During the Worship Service students join the Body in the Sanctuary to worship, hear the message, or take opportunity to serve in the nursery or Junior Church classes.
Sunday Evening 6pm
On Sunday evenings we meet as CBY Youth Group, which is for 7th-12th graders. We are using AWANA Curriculum and encouraging youth in growth through reading, memorization, prayer, and daily time in God’s word.
The Middle School Students are learning from the Trek study books, and the Senior High School Students are learning from the Journey study books. Parent Guides can be found here for Trek, and here for Journey.
Other Opportunities to connect are listed below on our calendar. They include, but are not limited to CBY game nights, serving at Vacation Bible School, short-term missions trips, an annual scavenger hunt, and teen Christmas Play.
