The youth ministry at Emmanuel Baptist Church consists of middle and high school students in grades 6-12. We gather throughout the week to help students grow in their faith and understanding of the Bible.
Sunday Morning Building Block (9:15 AM): During this time, we delve into various topics that equip students with both knowledge and resources to live a life dedicated to worship and service to Jesus. For the upcoming 2023-24 Building Block cycle, our topics will be as follows:
August '23 - November '23: The Apostles' Creed
November '23 - February '24: New Creation: What God does in and to a Christian.
February '24 - May '24: How Do I Grow as a Christian?
May '24 - August '24: Book Study - Exodus
Wednesday Night Midweek Bible Study (6:15 PM): Our midweek Bible study focuses on verse-by-verse teaching on a specific book of the Bible. We aim to teach what the texts says, means, and how it applies to our lives while also teaching students learn how to study the Bible themselves. Currently, we are studying through The Gospel of Luke.
Sunday Night Small Group (5:30 PM): The youth and their families come together to enjoy a meal, sing, and discuss the Bible together.
One Life Weekend: Our annual Disciple Now Weekend, called "One Life Weekend," is held in partnership with other local churches. You can learn more about this event at onelifeweekend.com. The aim of this event is to encourage middle and high school students to worship and serve Jesus within the local church, all for the glory of God.
One Life Retreat: We also have an annual summer retreat, called "One Life Retreat". EBC puts on this event in partnership with Alberta Baptist Church.
Our desire in these events is to see middle and high school students worship and serve Jesus in and through the local church to the glory of God. We strive to model faithful church worship services in our gatherings. We do this by emphasizing expositional preaching, biblically-ordered worship services, and doctrinally-rich singing.
