The MSBC Student Ministry seeks to partner with students and parents with the focus on knowing Christ as Savior, following Christ in discipleship, and influencing others for Christ. We do this by providing spiritually engaging, interactive, service, mission action and community building experiences.
Our Sunday morning Small Group Bible Study is designed to bring all Middle, High School, and College students into a deeper relationship with Christ through the study of God’s Word. We have trained leaders who are committed to live life and teach God’s Word to teenagers and college students no matter where they are spiritually. Our goal on Sunday is to connect young teenagers with each other and college students with each other and both groups to God through the study of the Bible.
The student ministry at Main Street reaches students from the communities of Grand Saline, Fruitvale, Canton, and Edgewood, as well as college students from Dallas, Tyler, and throughout east Texas. We have sessions throughout the week that minister to both young men and young ladies, Sunday morning Bible study groups for 7th-12th grades and college-aged students, and a Wednesday night worship service for 7th-12th grades. We provide hands-on discipleship and evangelism opportunities through local missions, retreats, and winter and summer camps.
The Following is our Wednesday night worship service, for students from 7th-12th grades. We are a group of Christ-followers, who desire to know Him and be known as His, and desire to see others come to know Him. The name comes from Luke 9:23, which says, “Then He said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” The atmosphere is upbeat, fun and in-depth. The Following begins each Wednesday evening at 6:00 PM and is over by 8 PM. Our youth-led band leads in worship and is followed by the practical application of God’s Word. We use video, music, games and more to see that each student goes away prepared to face an ungodly world!
Our College group meets every Sunday morning for small group Bible study.
When students complete MSBC Student ministry, our goal is for each of them to believe and communicate:
I see God for who he is, I see myself the way God sees me, and I will treat others the way I want to be treated.
