We are the student ministry for 7th-12th graders at Community Bible Church in Fort Smith, AR. Through teaching, worship, family groups, mission trips, retreats and more, we seek to engage, equip, and empower teenagers to do far more than they or adults normally expect them to do.
Too often teenagers are referred to and seen as “the future” of the church, when in reality, they are a vital part of “the present” mission of God as well. Join us as we seek to transform the world as God transforms us.

Stay Informed With Community Students
June 10 – 15
Beach Camp may be the best event we do all year. One, because it’s at the beach, but two: because it is one of the most intentional opportunities for students to encounter Jesus and see hundreds of other students just like them worshipping God.
And this year we are making it Super Affordable for everyone to go. It cost us $528 per student to go to Beach Camp, but we realize that is a high price. Therefore, we are going to be asking for donations to try and raise the money.
As for you, Beach Camp will only cost $250. And for those who regularly attend Community Students, you can save an extra $50 off that price.
The 90 spots are currently full. However, there will be students that drop off due to summer sports requirements, so go ahead and get on the waiting list and I will let you know when your spot comes available.
Join The Bible Reading Plan
Let’s Read Together As Community Students!
This is a 260 day Bible reading plan that we can all do together through the YouVersion App. Plus you get the weekends off. Simply sign up below and we will all get to read through the scriptures, comment and share thoughts, and grow closer to Jesus together. It begins January 15!
Believe is a high-energy weekend event for junior high students only. It is structured specifically for junior high students and is packed with powerful worship and teaching from God’s Word.
This event will also be open to 6th grade students in order to start building relationships with other Jr. High students at Community Bible. We believe this will help ease the transition into Jr. High.
This even will take place in Tulsa, OK on January 26-27 and the cost is $95. Space is limited so be sure to sign up quickly and reserve your spot with a $30 deposit.
HIGH SCHOOL HOME GROUPS
High school students love staying connected to each other and doing life together. That’s why we’ve created Home Groups.
Home Groups will meet every Sunday Night during the school year from 6:00 – 7:30. Groups are divided by location and will meet in Host Homes. So feel free to go to any group that you desire. All are welcome to join, even if your brand new to Community Students! ( See calendar above for all EXACT dates )
On the first Sunday of every month, we will do something all together instead of meet at the host homes, so be sure to follow us on Instagram and FB for updates.

JUNIOR HIGH CONVERGE
While Community Students does many thing together, it’s also important for Junior High to have something of their own. An atmosphere that connects with them.
That’s why we are changing things up. Junior High will have their own worship experience with games, music and relevant teaching to help them grow in their faith and connect with others their own age. This will take place every Wednesday Night from 6:00 – 8:00 in the Main Auditorium except for weeks we have The MVMNT.
Pronounced “Movement”, This is a once a month gathering where ALL students, 7th – 12th from ALL Community Bible Campuses, come together for an incredible night of fun, worship and an encounter with Jesus.
These nights will start at 6:00 with a themed pre-party and end with worship and a message that points straight to Jesus. This is the perfect night to invite friends and show them that church can actually be FUN!
Mark your calendar for these special dates coming in 2018.
Serve Week: Spring Break Week ( March 19-23 )
Beach Camp: June 11 – 15
RED EYE: July 27-28
