During this season of “social distancing” due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students in grades 6-12 should join us for our Online Bible Study of the book of John every Wednesday at 7pm on Zoom!

Then, on Sundays at 6pm sharp, meet us back on Zoom for SBS News and of course, game time. From there, students will click a link to participate in our online SBS service that includes both worship and a message. As the online SBS service wraps up, students will be able to click another link to participate in Small Group with their Small Group leader and friends on Zoom.

Student Ministry at South Bay Church

At South Bay Church our students (6th-12th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.

Your first visit

Whether you visit our middle or high school service here’s what to expect when visiting South Bay Students for the first time.

First, we will meet your family, check your student into the system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your student to our meeting space.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask you the following personal information (NOTE: we value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent / Guardian name(s)
  • Student’s name
  • Student’s birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your student

Middle & High School

On Sunday nights starting at 6:00pm we host our student service for all 6th-12th graders. This service contains teaching and material specific to the middle and high school age-range and will last about 90 minutes. During a typical student service you will find live worship, teaching, small groups, and LOTS of fun!

Meet our Student Leaders

Melissa Rios joined the South Bay church leadership team in 2019 as the interim student leader with her husband Rick Rios, and today leads our student ministry. Melissa and her husband have three daughters (Samantha, Morgan, and Camryn).
