The Harrisonburg Baptist youth group has a lot of exciting things to offer teens throughout the year! Our purpose is to inspire students to become passionately devoted followers of Jesus Christ…one life at a time. There are many opportunities for fellowship and spiritual growth in the HBC youth group throughout the entire year, such as retreats, lock-ins, Student Life Camp, mission trips, and much more.  If you ever have a question about any youth event, please contact Katelyn Belcher, our Youth Director, at
FRONTLINE –  Join us on Sunday nights at 6 pm for Frontline, a worship gathering designed specifically for middle school and high school students (6th-12th grades). Frontline is a time for our youth group to come together to worship through singing and the teaching of God’s word, and discovering how it impacts our lives. It is a ministry to equip young people who are passionate about Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to impact their world for the glory of God.  Supper is prepared and served each Sunday evening before Frontline by parents and church members.
BIBLE STUDY –  On Wednesday nights there are separate Bible studies for both guys and girls.  On the second Wednesday of each month, we volunteer at the Clothes Closet instead of having Bible study.  This is a great opportunity for us to serve others in our community. 
BAG LUNCH TEAM – The HBC youth come together to form one of the church’s Bag Lunch Teams.  About once every other month, we prepare and serve a hot lunch to our neighbors in need.  A bag lunch is also prepared and sent home with each of our neighbors..

The Youth Group participated in HBC’s annual Operation Inasmuch on Saturday, April 16.  The youth had their own job site this year at Highland Retreat in Bergton, VA where they painted newly constructed bathrooms at the camp. Highland Retreat has been hosting Christian camps and events for over 50 years.
