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 School Service @ 10am
The teenage Sunday service is a 40 min service that is held in the Youth District in the Lower Level of the church every Sunday morning, while the adults attend their classes throughout the church. 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 as well as YouthLIT (Leaders in Training) members who help make teenagers feel welcome, have fun, and leave feeling encouraged.

Teen Nights on Wednesday Nights @ 7:00 pm
Our Wednesday night service is held outside in our picnic shelter from around May to October months and in the lower level from October to April. Teenagers can expect to enjoy our outdoor sports areas when meeting outside. This includes basketball, sand volleyball, kickball, castelsquares, and more! We have a special snack each week and have practical Bible lessons while playing games and getting to know each other.
We have teen activities with lots of fun, laughter, and friends. Our teens are given an environment to have fun and spend time with the leaders of the youth ministry while hearing the Gospel. Some annual events that teens can expect are things like Adventureland, Winter Meltdown, Faithfest, Skyzone and more! For upcoming activies, check out our Jr. and Sr. High Activity Calendars in the Dropdown Menu under Teens.

Sunday Night Teen Connects
Once a month after the Sunday evening church service, teens and leaders connect with each other while going out to a local, inexpensive restaurant or ordering in at the church. We love places that have a dollar menu! For teens that don't have transportation after church, we are happy to bring them home afterward.
Summer and Winter Camps
Each summer and winter 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, and group games while winter camps offer snow tubing, snowmobiling, floor hockey and so much more! Teens are able to get away from it all and learn about God! For more information about IRBC, click here.
