Here at First Baptist, we challenge students to live their lives in tune with God. We want students to experience a relationship with God that is both genuine and life changing. Everything we do connects students with Christ. Our youth ministry encourages, challenges, and connects students to Christ. We want students to learn how to find lost friends, build themselves and others up in Christ, and change the world.
Wednesday Nights we have Bible Study at 6pm for Middle School and 7pm for High School. The kids head up to the youth room for worship led by our very own youth band. Bible study is led by David or one of our interns followed by some small group time led by some great adults. A great recharge for the middle of the week!
Every summer we pack up the church buses and head off to Fuge. This camp is the most fun you can pack into a week! Students spend a week in intensive Bible Study, recreation, track times, and worship designed with youth in mind! Fuge is the highlight of our summer! You don’t want to miss this.
Our youth do various mission activities throughout the year. One of the things we do is to take an international trip every other summer with our high school students. We have been to Ecuador, Czech Republic, and Alaska so far and future trips are already being planned. We also take part in mission activities in and around Nacogdoches.
The Difference is a citywide retreat we do every year over a weekend in January. Multiple churches from our community come together for a great weekend at Pineywoods Baptist Camp filled with worship, bible study and tons of activities. It is a great weekend to get you charged back up in the middle of the school year.
