LHBC's Middle School ministry is full of Students With A Testimony. Our SWAT Students are young men and women transitioning from childhood to adulthood, and we desire to help train these 6th to 8th graders to know Christ and live for Him alone.
SWAT meets every Friday night (except 3rd Fridays) in conjunction with EPIC (High School). After a joint time of games and worship through song, SWAT has their own lesson from God's Word. The lessons are crafted to instruct in biblical knowledge, hold high the name of Jesus and his saving grace, encourage godly living, and help begin and/or develop their relationship with God. Following each message, we break into small groups for discussions questions and directed application from the biblical text.
We regularly have fun activities outside of Friday nights for fellowship, from Pickle Ball and Curling excursions to casual backyard events. Every summer is highlighted by our SWAT Lock-In (an overnighter at LHBC) and a week-long SWAT VBS program.
SWAT also meets for Sunday School at 9:15 every Sunday in room 207.
