The “Barnacle Blues” are our 6th–12th graders here at Spanish Fort. Their name comes from the Blue Whale. We know that our kids are supposed to be the “light of the world” and here at Spanish Fort we are helping teach, equip, and build their faith to be just that. The Blue Whale has the loudest call of any creature on earth and we are helping develop the call of Christ in our youth so that they can be that light to our world.
We meet in the morning at the Spanish Fort Starbucks every Tuesday 6:30–7am for coffee, a short devo, and prayer before school.
On Sunday mornings at 9am the “Barnacle Blues” are going through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Why? So that they are equipped to face the ever changing world in front of them and while they may feel like they are the only Christians around at times, just like the decline in numbers of the Blue Whale, they will have a deep understanding of the Bible as a whole. We don’t study “The Old Testament” and “The New Testament” but the Bible as a whole and how it all relates back to Christ and how that affects us in our lives every day.
Due to Covid-19, we ask that the youth wear masks to the classroom. We will also allow room for social distancing. Sanitation stations can be found throughout the building, as well.
Once a month the Barnacle Blue’s get together on a Saturday for a fun day that is kept secret from them. We will have nerf wars, day trips, fishing, swimming—it is a day of fun and fellowship always making time for God and His Word.
There are currently no Wednesday night classes at the building due to Covid-19.
