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.

HIGH SCHOOL WNTR WKND
How does a weekend in a massive cabin with some of your closest friends sound? Because that is exactly what we are going to do on January 12-14.
This is a weekend designed specifically for high school students to build closer relationships, share life together and encounter Jesus in a very REAL and personal way.
We are also inviting all 9th grade students who would like to join so that they can begin to build relationships with high school students and ease next years transition from Jr. High to High School.
The cost is only $85 for this all inclusive trip – including Home Cooked Meals!!!
Space is limited to be sure to sign up quickly and reserve your spot with a $30 deposit.
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 5:00 – 6:30, except on weeks when we have The MVMNT. Groups are divided by grade and will meet in Host Homes. All are welcome to join, even if your brand new to Community Students! ( See calendar above for all EXACT dates )
12th Grade: 9920 Willowbrook Loop
11th Grade: 1603 Rannoch Trace
10th Grade: 3401 Southview Dr.
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!
JH & HS Converge
Because HS Home Groups meet on Sunday Nights, there are certain times in the year when Sunday Nights just don’t work. Mainly Holidays.
Therefore, on those nights, High School and Junior High will combine on that following Wednesday Night for an incredible night of fun, worship, teaching and family groups.
Mark your calendar for these special dates coming in 2018.
