Ignite Students Ministry

Ignite Student Ministries is the student ministry at Holly Spring Baptist Church in Franklin, NC. For students in Grades 5th-12th, we offer Large Group and Small Group activities that help students grow in a closer relationship with God and each other. It is our desire that students own their faith by the time they leave the Ignite Student Ministry. This is accomplished by providing opportunities for them to grow and for them to put their faith in action. Click here to view our Ignite Student Ministry Brochure.

This is a high energy mix of fun games, worship, and Small Group teaching. XP3 Curriculum helps students to see God for who He is, to see themselves the way God sees them, and to love others the way He loves us. When topics need to be age appropriate, Middle School and High School will meet in separate areas.

We also have an array of games (foosball, ping pong, air hockey, pool, Xbox, PS3, Wii) to play or just hang out in the couch area with friends.

Summer 2020

- Parent Meetings on May 31st in Youth Room

- Camp Anderson (5:45 - 6:30) / Savannah (6:45-7:30)

Summer time is a great time for students to grow closer to God through camp and mission trip experiences. At HSBC, we believe in making these experiences happen for our students. In June each year, we take students to Camp Anderson (Old Town, FL). Then, in July, we head out of town to a specified location for a week-long mission trip (this year: Savannah, GA). There are costs associated with these experiences, but we do our best to provide opportunities through fundraising and generous church sponsors to help offset some of those costs.
