“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” I Peter 2:9
His Chosen Generation: The Teens of MRBC exists to help each teen discover his purpose as a Christian through practical steps of spiritual growth. We invite your teens to come be a part of us. They have been chosen!
Each Sunday morning, our entire teen group will meet together for songs and announcements at 10:50. After the opening service, they move to separate Sunday school classes in the following locations:
- 8:53 (grades 7-9) Girls – G202
- 8:53 (grades 7-9) Guys – G103
- 11:50 (grades 10-12) Girls – G203
- 11:50 (grades 10-12) Guys – Teen Room
Our Sunday school lessons will be derived from the weekly Quiet Time that we encourage all of our teens to purchase. Teens are encouraged to attend the 9:30 a.m. worship service before Sunday school each week. If they are unable to sit with their parents, they have the opportunity to sit in the “Teen Section” of the auditorium!
Our Wednesday evening teen service runs year-round. We use curriculum provided by Word of Life International. During the summer time, our program begins at 7:00 p.m. During the school year, our program begins at 6:45 p.m., and consists of ice breakers, announcements, snacks, worship, share time, and practical teaching from the Word of God. After the main message, teens have the opportunity to be involved in small Cre8tive Discipleship groups. This provides an atmosphere for discussion and accountability among the teens and teen staff. All Wednesday evening events end at 8:15 p.m.
Teens Grades 7-9 – Meeting Wednesday nights in the Church Library
Teens Grades 10-12 – Meeting Wednesday nights in the Teen Room
A Note from the Youth Pastor
The teen staff and I are excited about this year in the teen group. Your teenager will have many opportunities to grow closer to Christ by being involved with the Teens of Monclova Road Baptist Church. We realize that your teenager needs YOUR support, encouragement and example to grow spiritually and stand for the faith. Will you be a godly example this year and encourage your teenager to be personally involved in our ministry?
Our theme for the 2012-2013 year is “God, the Father.” Each Wednesday night, your teenager will be learning about these important doctrines from the Word of God. Both I and men of our teen staff will be co-teaching the 8:53 and the 11:50 teens. Also, in an attempt to provide continuous opportunities for preaching, several of our teens will take on teaching roles on occasional Wednesday nights.
We hope you realize that we have your teen’s best interests at heart and desire for him to grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our desire is to come alongside you as a parent and help instruct, guide, discipline, and love your teenager. Please know that throughout the year, our youth staff will be praying for you and for your teen to be more like Christ.
2 Timothy 3:15
