The mission of LBC Youth is to help students take the next step in their understanding of and relationship with Jesus. We focus on discipleship (becoming more like Jesus), gathering (getting together), worship (putting God first as a lifestyle), serving (showing people Jesus), and life on mission (seeing life as bigger than ourselves).

Middle School

This is the place you want to be if you are in 6th-8th grade. It’s an exciting environment where being YOU is cool! We’re all about helping you make friends your age while challenging you to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Activate

Activate is where we gather together to worship through singing, studying God’s word, and unpacking the practical application in small groups.

August 19 – May 19

LBC Student Ministry Night

We gather on Wednesday nights as a large community of students to engage worship, to lean into God’s word, to connect relationally with students and leaders, and to be invited to take our next step in our relationship with Jesus.  This environment is designed for students to rally together to discover who they are, who God is, and how a life lived for Him can bring freedom and purpose.

FAQs

We know it can be intimidating to walk into a new place and not know what to expect, so we want to let you know what you will experience as you enter LBC Youth.

When you arrive we ask that you check in. (SUNDAYS only, we will check your phone into our “Chatter Box”–a storage unit that keeps your phone safe during the program.)

Before the program starts you get to play pool, ping pong, air hockey, board games, gaga, 4 square, basketball and more. Each activity is led by a great volunteer leader.

During the program we have a game, worship led by a live band, teaching, and, most importantly, time set aside for you to talk in your small group. Each small group is led by a trained leader who will help you feel connected and encourage you to make a next step in your understanding of your relationship with Jesus.

At the end of the program you are welcome to leave, hang out and play games until your parent comes to pick you up or until the Youth Complex closes.

We look forward to seeing you at LBC Youth. If you have any questions please contact us!

We believe that water baptism is a public witness intended to reflect an internal decision of faith to trust Jesus alone for salvation.

Special weekends are designated to celebrate baptism together as a community. Prior to these, parents may discern with their child when they are ready to publicly proclaim their faith through baptism. In order to help you both with this decision, baptism classes will be available and required for all wishing to be baptized.
