Get Connected With BVBC

Soon after your first visit to Bow Valley Baptist, you will hear about our Connection Groups. These are smaller communities of people who gather to connect with God and with each other. All of our groups are different. Most meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00am but some also meet at different times on different days during the week.  We also have Connection Groups for youth and children.

As soon as you hang out with us for a short time, you will find that most weeks are full of other opportunities for our people to serve, grow, and connect.

God intends for us to have an abundant and joyful life so we value being together and have a great time while we gather. Throughout the year, we plan a variety of events intended to help us all on our journey with Christ and each other.

YOUTH GROUP 

Join dozens of Cochrane students for worship, Bible study, and tons of fun! The Youth Ministry is the place to be for students in grades 7-12.

We offer a weekly student gathering called Impact and a servant leadership training program on Sunday mornings called SALT. We also have a full schedule of other fun and meaningful events like Summer Youth Celebration (SYC) at Alberta Beach, LaserQuest, trampoline parks, amazing race and much more.

Our Youth Ministry exists to reach students for Jesus Christ and connect them through meaningful relationships with each other and caring adult leaders. We seek to grow students who honour God with their lives and serve others out of a genuine passion for Him.

 

IMPACT – Wednesday’s from 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Our Wednesday night student ministry and happens from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, each week from September through June.  Each Wednesday night during the month has a different focus based on a wholistic approach to learning and building community. Some nights the youth split into their small groups, which are age and gender specific and some weeks they all meet together.

Small Groups (1st Wednesday of the month)

Small groups meet, at the church with, adult group leaders. Time is spent catching up on life, having some fun, planning for the group’s service project for serve night, and most importantly, a discussion oriented Bible study…all for the purpose of growing in community and God’s word.

Serve Night and Q&A Night (Alternating on the 2nd Wednesday of the month)
The students in their Small Groups determine a way to serve the community of Cochrane. Then, on Serve night, they go and execute their  project. Groups meet at the church  at 6:30pm for some final organization. Then they head out to serve. All the groups meet back here at  the church for  some discussion before being dismissed at 8:30pm.
The Q&A nights are an opportunity for youth to ask questions about God, the Bible or Christianity. We want to encourage open discussion as well as answer questions that the youth are wondering about. We spend time in games and fellowship together before coming together as a group for the Q&A time.

Mixed Night (3rd Wednesday of the month)

We meet together at the church as a large group. We play games, hang out, and have a Bible study all together. After the Bible study we split into our small groups to discuss what we learned and connect with each other. Then we come back together as a large group for a snack time before pick up at 8:30pm.

Large Group (4th Wednesday of the month)

All students meet together at the church for an intense night of fun, friendship, worship done by a youth worship team, and God’s word. Increase nights are designed uniquely for students to experience the truth and relevance of Biblical community.

5th Wednesdays

Every few months, there are 5 Wednesdays. When that happens, we will have a games night.

S.A.L.T – Sunday’s @ 9:00am (September to June)

Come join us in a great time of connecting with each other and God’s word. There are two different age groups that meet together. Grades 7-9 and Grades 10-12. This fosters a small group feel while the teaching can connect with what each age group is working through in their lives.

Our Student Ministry exists to reach students for Jesus Christ and connect them through meaningful relationships with each other and caring adult leaders. We seek to grow students who honour God with their lives and serve others out of a genuine passion for Him.
