McClendon Student Ministry, grades 6th through 12th, is driven by the overall purpose of the church: to make a spiritual impact on individuals locally and worldwide so as to grow strong followers of Christ. Our students are guided and encouraged to become a part of our church fellowship to be identified as the body of Christ and to be known, loved on, and held accountable. Group Bible Studies (divided in grade levels) is our evangelistic arm through the teaching of the Bible. Discipleship on Sunday evening strives to strengthen faith and offer our students opportunities to minister to others. Worshiping God is our reason for existence; everything we do is done to worship HIM. Our students through Mission-Serve, are a part of changing the world one city at a time. Each summer they are involved in a ministry project; and throughout the year, there are ministry events in the church and the community.
- 6th grade-11th grades – The Thread—Discovering the Thread of the Gospel through the big-picture story of the Bible
- 12th grade – Students will go through The Thread Bible study as well as a discipleship tract that is designed to prepare them for life after high school (Apologetics, Finance, and Theology).
Youth Group Bible Study classes meet at 9:4o am in the Student Building on the first and second floor.
Our students serve with other students from around the United States to meet physical and spiritual needs through construction; roofing, painting, clean up, etc. Students will advance the gospel and answer God’s call to make disciples. Students must have completed the 8th grade, be an active member in McClendon, have participated in projects (fall festival, Nashville Nights, etc.) Students must also take part in a 4 week Bible study in preparation for the trip.
