|One of our main desires as a staff is to establish a connection with all students at Denton Bible Church. This includes connecting our students with the church body at large.
We have been praying through an idea for months that we feel can help us do that – specifically on Sunday mornings.
Beginning next Sunday, November 15th, we are going to change the way a DBSM Sunday morning functions for the time being. We will begin our Sunday morning at 10:15am with what we are calling “Breakfast Club”.
“Breakfast Club” is a time for all 6-12th graders where we provide a quick breakfast and provide a time fellowship in the SMC Commons and Gym from 10:15-10:50am. We are really looking forward to providing an intentional time that will allow staff, leaders, and students to connect each Sunday, as well as provide a non-threatening environment for new students to get connected.
Around 10:50am we will gather everyone up and head over to the main service where we will allow students to choose to either sit with their families or in our student section. The student ministries section will be located in the top left side (closest to the Fellowship Hall).
By joining with the main body 11am Main Service we feel this can accomplish 3 things:
We feel this will allow us to better establish a connection with students and equip them for life through the DBC Sunday Morning Service.
The backbone of DBSM is that we desire to share our lives and share the Gospel (1 Thess 2:8). We want our students to feel like they belong, not just at DBSM, but at DBC. We want our students to see that they are part of something great at DBC. We want them to sit under the teaching of the Gospel of Mark. We want them to know people and to be known.
By adding a time of fellowship and fun before the 11:00 am and joining with the main service at 11:00, we feel this could be the start of something great. So, November 15th we are going to try this out as Tommy walks through the Gospel of Mark.
Next Sunday, November 15th, is going to be our first Sunday gathering for Breakfast Club from 10:15-10:50 a.m. and then at the 11am main service together!
Below is a summary of our new Sunday morning:

Why Make This Change?
We are excited to see how God uses this to bring even more unity to our church family and community.
