Our high school and middle school students meet in the Upper East Wing for Sunday School classes on Sunday mornings at 9:15 and for youth group on Wednesday evenings at 6:45.
Thank You Letter From Iceland Missionary Patrick Weimer
Dear Morningside Baptist Church and TMT 2019,
Most assuredly will feeble words of man fail to express an appropriate level of gratitude towards each of you.
I remain overwhelmed at the thought of your labor of love, labor which you all offered so freely and tirelessly for Christ in Iceland. I stand in awe as to what your battalion of soldiers for Christ accomplished!
For the long days and labor, Thank You!
For the people with whom you spoke the Word of God, Thank you!
For singing my favorite songs, Thank you!
For the removal of those dreaded purple weeds, THANK YOU!
For the attrition to the rock wall, Thank you!
For clearing the way for more construction, Thank you!
For the sanding, painting, and especially for the crosses, Thank you!
For cleaning windows and bus, Thank you!
For your testimonies and love for Christ, Thank you!
For the devotions and burdens shared, Thank you!
For ministering to my young converts, Thank you!
For challenging our youth, Thank you!
For reaching over 5,300 homes with the Gospel message, Thank you!
For removing all that trash, Thank you!
For wanting to go the extra mile and keep visiting, Thank you!
For a wonderful day of fun, Thank you!
For the fun game of Spades that made me feel welcomed and loved, Thank you!
For loving us as we are, Thank you!
For seeing the need in Iceland, Thank you!
For praying for us still, Thank you!
For all the unseen sacrifice needed to get your team to Iceland, Thank you!
For the gift of love that you sent, Thank you!
For the wonderful food by the kitchen staff, Thank you!
Most of all, I thank our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for helping us all make your mission trip both a blessing to the team and a blessing to the work here in Iceland.
THANK YOU ALL!
Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
Equipping: Sunday School
On Sundays at 9:15, middle school and high school students gather in the Upper East Wing to receive dynamic Bible teaching geared toward the heart and mind. For further information, please contact Pastor Jeff Webb or call 864.297.7890.
Serving: Wednesday Youth Group
If Sunday is the time to equip and energize our students, then Wednesday is the time they put all that teaching into practice. Training is more focused on Wednesday during our monthly split sessions, and the application becomes more practical as the teens have opportunities to exercise their spiritual gifts for the edification of the local church.
1st Wednesday — Meeting Other’s Needs
The youth group is involved in a local nursing-home extension. Haywood Estates is located on Haywood Road and offers an opportunity for our teens to get involved. We are involved with this outreach every first Wednesday during the school year. If your student has an interest in playing an instrument, singing a special, giving a testimony, or preaching then this is the place for your student.
2nd Wednesday — Meeting Your Student’s Needs
During the school year, Pastor Jeff and his wife, Bethany, offer a split session for the students. This split session meets every second Wednesday of the month. After the session, we take the opportunity to enjoy fellowship in the gym.
3rd Wednesday — Meeting the Family’s Needs
Throughout the year after a challenge from Pastor Webb, students, and their families have an opportunity to pray with their deacon care group leader. This allows your family to either develop or strengthen their prayer time as a family. Establishing the habit and maintaining the discipline of family prayer is of utmost importance.
4th Wednesday — Meeting the Group’s Needs
We meet the entire time as a youth group in the Upper East Wing. We will be together and focus on the Word and prayer. Even though the students are presented with truths from God’s Word almost every Wednesday, this particular Wednesday we meet collectively. After the session, we will have an opportunity to enjoy fellowship in the gym.
Community and worldwide outreach is important to our youth group. Every month we participate in our church-wide outreach program and serve in a local nursing home by providing music specials and teaching from God’s Word. Each year our students travel away from Greenville on mission trips. These trips focus the students on others and away from self. Trips range from Vacation Bible School, evangelism, canvassing, and general projects that benefit the local ministry.
connecting: Activities & Camps
Students love to have fun! Each month we combine middle school and high school for a main event that is exciting and available for the entire family. Additionally, the middle school and high school meet separately one Sunday a month for their own unique time of fellowship with each other. The event calendar is located on our website and is updated regularly.
