SWITCH Student Ministry

SWITCH is for all students in 6th-12th grade.


Our name, SWITCH, highlights our shift from death to life when we trust in Jesus Christ as our Savior (John 5:24). 

Our purpose is to help students receive Christ Jesus as their LORD, be rooted and built up in their faith, and to abound in thanksgiving for all God does (Colossians 2:6-7).

SWITCH Ministry Rhythms

Committing to a regular practice of

connecting, growing, serving, & reaching. 


SWITCH on Wednesday Nights @SVBC

Wed. 6:45-8:15PM [Rm 200, the Loft]

Our weekly gathering of students in 6th-12th grade is a safe, authentic place where you can be yourself, be with other teens, and connect with adult mentors so that you can grow closer to God. Each week, we worship God, play games, learn from the Bible, and connect in small groups.


Sunday School

Sundays 9:45-10:45AM

Jr High [Rm 214] | Sr High [Rm 200, the Loft]

This discussion based, in-depth teaching from God's Word equips you with a theology (study of God) that applies to life’s issues and develops a biblical worldview. 

SWITCH Special Events

In addition to our weekly Sunday School & SWITCH times, we typically have one special event each month. Check out the calendar to join in on the next one!

Church Life

Students are the church of today! You’ll find Jr. & Sr. high students serving our church family in Tech & Worship Ministry, Children’s Ministry, Ushering, VBS, & more. 

On Mission Service Projects 

Throughout the year, we intentionally make space to serve both our local community and organizations around the world. Students are living on mission right here. 

Winter Retreats

Each winter, we have an extended retreat to connect more as a group, enjoy God's creation, and most importantly to grow in our understanding and worship of God. 2020 had 2 weekends at Camp Timber-lee's winterXtreme with other local churches.

Crossings Summer Camp

Get excited for Crossings 2020! Theme is I Am/Moses: how God revealed Himself and worked through Moses. This dynamic, gospel-centered 4-night camp is for all students who've completed 6th-12th grade. Save the date: July 9-13, 2020.

Cross-cultural Missions

Each summer, students are a vital part of our intergenerational teams serving either locally or globally. This past summer, a team traveled to Tecate, Mexico from June 8-15.

Parent Seminars and Updates

Switch Student Ministry is intentional in equipping parents in living out disciple-making in the home. We accomplish this by having teen parenting seminars bi-annually where parents can discuss various topics teens face and build relationships with each other.
