Ministry to Youth

Our hope is for the youth of our church to one day put their faith in Jesus Christ, proclaim their faith in baptism, and become integrated members of the local body of Christ.

To this end, 6th to 12th graders gather every 4 to 6 weeks for a time of relationship building and encouragement from God's Word. They will sometimes gather in someone's home for a game night, at a bowling alley, at the park, or elsewhere in the neighborhood. Parents and other background checked members of the church are always welcomed and encouraged to come to these gatherings to encourage the youth in discipleship to Christ.

To be added the SBC Youth Gatherings email list or to find out more, contact the church office.


First Friday

First Friday is a cooperative ministry of 5 evangelical churches in the Sellwood-Moreland neighborhoods of Portland. On the first Friday of every month, there is a meeting for 6th to 12th graders in our surrounding community to meet for times of friendship building, fun, and meaningful conversation about the person and work of Jesus. Our next meeting will be on September 1st at 6:30pm. The youth of Sellwood Baptist Church are encouraged to participate in this gospel cooperative.
