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

We meet on alternate Sunday evenings around the Roanoke Valley including Salem. Childcare is arranged and shared within each group.

Man-Up Men's Discipleship
Please join us for the men's breakfast and prayer retreat on January 13, 2018 at 8:00 am.
Men and teen guys get together periodically for breakfast and a time in God's Word
Colossians and Philemon
Colossians and Philemon are two of Paul's "prison epistles"—letters written while he was imprisoned for preaching Jesus Christ as Lord. Even in the face of persecution, prison bars could not con-tain Paul's zeal for the gospel. In his letter to the Colossian church he sounded the alarm of false teaching and encouraged the believ-ers to find sufficiency in Christ. In his letter to Philemon he pleaded for mercy and forgiveness for a runaway slave. Kathleen Nielson helps us see how these messages are still relevant and alive in many ways.
