We are the student ministry for 7th-12th graders at Community Bible Church in Fort Smith, AR. Through teaching, worship, small 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.

Apprentice is a summer discipleship program for rising 10-12 grade students. This is an opportunity to grow deeper in your faith, serve others and ultimately learn how to live a life that reflects Christ!
We meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 8:00 throughout the summer. You can expect to eat a little, learn a lot, have some fun and build meaningful relationships with friends and mentors who want to do life together.
NIGHT OF WORSHIP
Worship is our response to God for who He is and what He has done in our lives. This is an opportunity for students to come together in response to the goodness of God in our lives.
Expect to dance, sing and pour out your heart to the creator of the universe. Saturday, July 22 @ 7:00 at our Van Buren Campus. And there just might be an ice cream after party!!
Let’s face it, one of the best parts of summer is all the fun you can have. Squad wars was created just for that.
Every other Thursday night throughout the summer from 6:00 – 8:00, your squad will compete in various games to ultimately become the squad wars champion. Don’t have a squad, don’t worry, we will add you to one. Just make sure you wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.

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 week starting in the fall, except on weeks when we have The MVMNT. Groups are divided by grade and will meet on different nights throughout the week. Groups, times and locations will be posted in the fall.
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 in the fall. 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 6:30 – 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!
