Rooted: Student Ministry
Rooted together in His love, growing in His image, spreading His glory
Our student ministry consists of grades 7 - 12. (For more on age requirements, see bottom of page)
Just like every ministry at Katy Bible Church, our goal for the student ministry is to raise mature believers in Christ who are connected to the body of Christ. In the student ministry, we seek to do that by connecting students to other students their age and teaching them in a way that fits to their unique context as students. Our desire is that together they would be rooted in the love of Christ, grow in to His image and proclaim His glory.
Ephesians 3:17-19, "That you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fulness of God.

Sunday School: At 9:00am the middle school and high school boys meet in room 302 and the middle school and high school girls meet in the portable building. Both groups are going through The Gospel Project Student Curriculum. The student curriculum is the same curriculum the rest of the church is studying but at a level geared towards students. We encourage parents to attend the "Adults with Children at Home" class located in the Fellowship Hall.
Small Group: Middle and high school students meet for small groups on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30. The boys meet at the Mancini home and the girls meet at KBC in the portable building. This time consists of fellowship, music and Bible study. Our last Bible study in the spring was "Jonah". "Jonah" focused on why we sometimes run away from God but also taught us that God graciously pursues us. Since God so graciously pursues us, we ought to pursue others with God's grace as well!
We leave some Wednesday nights free in order to allow for more family time, those nights are noted in the schedule below. If you would like more information, please fill out the contact form.

We want to offer a 3 week “intentional discipleship” opportunity this summer, to help the students “resolve” to stay on track during a season that has the potential to take us off-course. This will be a time of study and learning how to grow in Christ. We will be going through the book “What Do You Think Of Me? Why Do I Care?” By Ed Welch.
If students want to be a part of this, we will require that they read a couple of chapter in the book each week. Matt Lear will be leading the guys group and Krista Lear and Alexa Adams will be leading the girls group. This will take place on Monday nights from July 10-24.
Let Pastor Lear know if your student wants to be involved so that I can order them a book.
For all student ministry activities, we have a minimum age requirement. Students must have begun 7th grade and be at least 13 years old or turning 13 during the school year in order to attend activities.
Sunday school is the acceptation. We have a middle school sunday school class which is for grades 6-8).
We also have a maximum age limit. Students can attend through the summer after their senior year. Any student who is not currently in high school can attend provided they are no older than 18 during the school year.
