HBC Teen Ministry is a community of teenagers that strive to bring one message to the world: JESUS. We believe that God's Word is crucial to guiding teens in spiritual growth so that they might live a life that shines Christ. This is the biblical model given to us in Proverbs 3:5-6: to trust God in all that we do and look to Him for guidance in our life rather than the wisdom of the world.
Our goal is to help every teenager to grow in Christ, find Godly friends, learn God's Word, and to feel at home with us. If you are looking for a good church home for your teenager, you'll find a place at Heartland Baptist Church.
Sunday Morning Service @ 8:30 & 11:00am l Available Online @ 8:00am HERE
The teenage Sunday morning service is a 1 hour service that is held in the Youth District in the Lower Level of the church every Sunday morning while the adults attend the morning service in the main sanctuary. Teenagers can enjoy games in our Rec Room, breakfast items, worship, fellowship, biblical teaching, and games. We have a fantastic group of Adult Youth Leaders that sanitize before and after each of our services and teens are encouraged to stay socially distant throughout the services. Chairs are spaced accordingly and teens are instructed to wear gloves whenever playing games that require touching game equipment. Games are carefully selected to ensure that teenagers can enjoy the fun while staying safe.
Sunday School @ 10:00 am
Teen Sunday School is a 45 minute time prepared especially for teenagers. Each week includes worship songs from our youth worship team, small groups, crazy fun games, clean funny videos, snacks and an awesome time with friends. Social distancing and sanitization are a high priorities that we practice every service for the safety and comfort of our teenagers.
Wednesday Nights @ 7:00 pm (Temporarily Suspended Until Further Notice)
Our Wednesday night includes a time of prayer, awesome worship songs, snacks, and a game followed by an interesting discussion of relevant Bible topics, such as dealing with friendships, relationships, emotions, and wisdom.
We have teen activities with lots of fun, laughter, and friends while continuing to stay safe and sanitary. Our teens are given a safe, healthy environment to have fun and spend time with the leaders of the youth ministry.
Sunday Night Teen Connect (Temporarily Suspended Until Further Notice)
Once a month after the Sunday evening church service, teens and leaders connect with each other while going out to a local inexpensive restaurant. We love places that have a dollar menu! For teens that don't have transportation, if the teen can get to church, we are happy to bring them home afterward.
Each summer we attend Iowa Regular Baptist Camp where teens have tons of fun and memories are made. Summer camp includes tubing, a giant blob, paintball, crafts, a zipline, group games, and much more. Teens are able to get away from it all and learn about God! Throughout the year, we offer many fundraising opportunities for any teenager that wants to go to camp. For more information about IRBC, click here.
