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 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!
What girl doesn’t like a slumber party? Now combine that with some incredible talks and spiritual guidance from some women who have “BEEN THERE” and you walk away with one of the greatest nights of your life.
All the football games in the area are local on this weekend (September 8-9), so it’s the perfect opportunity to keep the party going after the game. If you don’t go to the game, just plan on meeting in The Lounge in the back of the church at 11:00. Food will be provided and you’ll enjoy a tasty pancake breakfast before you leave at 10:00am on Saturday morning.
Let us know if you’ll be coming by signing up below.
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.
Fields of Faith
Fields of Faith is a student led event. Students invite, pray for, share with, and challenge their peers to read the Bible and follow Jesus Christ. An athletic field provides a neutral, rally point where a community can come together.
Because we want to be a church that reaches our community, we are going to join with Fields of Faith by inviting, praying for and attending this event.
Meet at the Southside High School football field at 6:30 and come experience Jesus with your friends from all over the Fort Smith area.
