“The Verge” Student ministry is a place for students in grades 6-12 at Versailles Baptist Church. It’s the goal of The Verge is that every student would become a fully-devoted, life-long, follower of Jesus Christ.
Your student will love The Verge! At every Verge we have a mixture of interactive games, thought-provoking videos, powerful worship, and relevant and gospel-centered teaching from God’s word. Before the doors open for worship the youth enjoy food, video games, pool, and fellowship in our commons in the youth area.
The Verge is a great place to bring unbelieving or uncommitted teenage friends because they will be loved and word and deed.
On Wednesdays we offer ways for your student to relate to God’s word through community in our D-groups which are broken down by age and gender. These are groups of 5-10 students who each week meet for the purpose of sharing life and being encouraged and equipped to follow Christ.
Currently we are emphasizing the H.A.B.I.T.S. of a disciple.
Hanging out with God. A disciple is in communication with God. They talk to God in prayer and hear from God in His Word.
Recently we published Walking With Jesus Booklet which has some of the HABITS outlined and easy, daily readings so that the youth can begin to develop the HABIT of hearing from God in His Word each day.
Accountability to others. A disciple seeks out & submits to accountability from Christian peers, parents (or parental figures), and pastors because they know the Christian walk is not a journey meant to be traveled alone.
Bible Study & Memorization. A disciple studies and memorizes God’s Word because they know there is wisdom, there is truth, and nourishment. The “Walking with Jesus” booklet has some memory verses to help the youth get started.
Involvement in the Church. A disciple is committed to the church because Christ is
committed to the church, he/she seeks to serve in and through it. Therefore we want to encourage youth to find their S.H.A.P.E for ministry.
Tithing. A disciples sets apart time, talents, and treasure for God.
Sharing Your Faith. A disciple looks for opportunities to share the good news.
Special Trips and Events happen often around here as well! Whether it’s Summer Camp, Fall Retreats, Lock-ins, Concerts, Mission experiences, or other gatherings your child will always be excited about the next thing.
