"He who dwells in THE SHELTER of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty." Psalm 91:1
The Shelter

A place of worship, a place of refuge, a place where you feel protected from the storms of life

The dictionary describes a shelter as something that provides cover and protection, a refuge, a haven. As baptized, born again believers of Jesus Christ He becomes our shelter so that we can begin to serve Him and show His love to the lost and dying world. That is what the student ministry of Shoal Creek Baptist church is about:

Our Mission

Jesus Christ has given us our mission through the Great Commission

"And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I ahve commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.'"
Matthew 28:18-20

Our Purpose

Reach, Teach, Minister

Our Ministry at Shoal Creek has a threefold purpose to bring glory to God through reaching people with the gospel, teaching people the Word of God, and ministering to people through the love of Christ.

Shelter, Cover, Retreat, Refuge, Sanctuary

These nouns refer to places affording protection, as from danger,
or to the state of being protected:

Shelter usually implies a covered or enclosed area that protects temporarily,
as from injury or attack: built a shelter out of pine and hemlock boughs.

Cover suggests something that conceals: His blood covers me.

Retreat applies chiefly to a secluded place to which one retires for meditation,
peace, or privacy: a rural cabin that served as a weekend retreat.

Refuge suggests a place of escape from pursuit or from difficulties that beset one: "The great advantage of a hotel is that it's a refuge from home life." (George Bernard Shaw)

Sanctuary denotes a sacred or inviolable place of refuge:

A place of worshipping our Lord and Savior.
