There are many places that university students can find to be a part of and then commit their college years to. From fraternities and sororities to campus clubs and even just their studies. First Baptist is a church committed to reaching these college students. Our desire is to help them find what so many are looking for... purpose and reason.

Many are searching for God's will for their life and we hope that we can help them to find that and grow in their faith and relationship with Christ. FBC is a great place for university students to be involved. There are Bible Studies, ministry opportunities, mission trips, conferences, and much more to be a part of.

Come by and join us on Sunday mornings for Bible Study at 10:15 in The Basement, Community Groups on Sunday Nights at 7:30pm and then Tuesday nights at 8pm for 24:7 here in our Sanctuary. Take a look around the site then come and see what is going on at FBC. We look forward to meeting you!

“24:7” is a University Worship Service held here in our Sanctuary. It takes place at 8:00p.m. every Tuesday night during the semester.

In 1998, First Baptist started this worship service for students at their church on Wednesday evenings. It was known as “Great Escape.” For years, every Wednesday night, hundreds of students would gather to worship and celebrate the King of Kings.

In the fall of 2012, several churches and campus ministries began to pray and seek the ability to bring this worship service to the campus. With a new place and night to worship on campus, and with the addition of other groups, we chose a new name. “24:7” is based on the verse found in Jeremiah 24:7.
“I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.”

Come join over 250 students every Tuesday night as we worship together and proclaim the name of Jesus.
