At Sarasota Baptist Student Ministry (SarasotaBSM), we are a student community on a mission to connect students to Jesus by reaching-out those who don’t know Him, and to equip and disciple those who do. Here’s how you can get connected with us this week!
Apex (High School) meets as a large group on
Sunday mornings from 10:30AM-12:00PM. This time for
our high school students (9th-12th grade) features light breakfast items like doughnuts, pastries, coffee, juice, etc., biblical discussion, teaching & application, plus worship and more. It’s a laid-back environment where high schoolers can grow spiritually in a conversational setting, strengthen relationships and experience community.
