Youth Bible Institute
The Youth Bible Institute (YBI) was designed to come along side of parents and support them in their God-given responsibility to “bring [their children] up in the training and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).
Our focus in YBI studies are as follows:
- To deepen their knowledge of the Bible
- Provide training/instruction in the Christian faith
- To “always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks […] a reason for the hope that is in [them], with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15)
- Cultivate a Christian worldview in students through Biblical instruction/application of God’s word
The YBI Curriculum topics are as follows:
- Biblical Counseling
- Biblical Interpretation of scripture
- Systematic Theology
- Christian Life and Living
The YBI time frames are as follows:
- Three years in Junior Varsity
- Three years in Varsity
- Every Sunday morning throughout the year
- Wednesday evenings for fall/spring semesters
We also provide students fellowship and service opportunities each month. These events are important in fostering Christian love for others, a heart for service, and the development of Christ-centered relationships.
We are currently studying spiritual gifts

Home Care Groups
The Bible is filled with "One Another" commands that are best accomplished in home small groups that foster the following:
- Closer relationship/fellowship
- Personal accountability
- Deeper application of sermon material
- Mutual care, prayer, and friendship
Small "shepherding" groups are a way of accomplishing these biblical mandates while providing an excellent forum for outreach. As a step toward our goal of "Everyone with a Shepherd" from our Vision Statement - we have initiated small shepherding groups called "Care Groups".
All are invited to be involved. Care Groups meet at many locations and you are free to go to any group you please.
Regional Area Locations:
- CMC Fellowship Hall, 12:30 pm
- SE County (rotating locations), 5 pm
- Various Locations, 5:30 pm
- SW County (Colonial Ave. & Electric Rd.), 5:30 pm

The Envy of Eve
Finding Contentment in a Covetous World
What's truly at the heart of our desires? The Envy of Eve, a nine week study, aims to help us understand how desires grow into covetousness and what happens when this sin takes power in our hearts. Covetousness chokes out the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, allowing discontentment to bloom. The key to overcoming is to get to the root of our problem: unbelief--a mistrust of God's sovereignty and goodness.
