About Our Youth Ministry
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 Night Bible Study
We do a combined worship service beginning at 6:00pm. Beforehand, we have pizza and fellowship starting at 5:00pm.
Our service includes youth led worship and a time of biblical teaching. Afterwards we have access to the gym to hang out and fellowship.
Sunday Night Small Groups
Sunday Night Bible Studies will be walking through the book of James this Fall. Our main goal is to teach students how to understand scripture and apply it to their lives. For the Fall, we will meet at the church at 5:00pm. Dinner will be provided and we’ll have a time of fellowship afterwards.
Summer Youth Camp
Every summer we pack up the church buses and head off to Fuge Youth Camp. 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 always in the works. We also take part in mission activities in and around Nacogdoches.
Each Winter 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 time to get you charged back up in the middle of the school year.
