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 seeks to create disciples who desire to know God, live in biblical community, and serve those around them. We do this through one-on-one and group discipleship.
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
Our main goal is to teach students how to understand scripture and apply it to their lives. We seek to do this through small group discussion led by college students. During the school year, we will meet at the church at 5:00 pm. Dinner will be provided.
Every summer we pack up the church buses and head off to Youth Camp. Camp is the highlight of our summer! You don’t want to miss this. This year we are going back to Falls Creek, OK.
Our youth do various mission activities throughout the year. We have a heart to partner with local missions. We partner with Mission Nac each summer and we are looking to take a group of leaders to the Northwest to help serve with Resonate this Spring Break.
