“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.”
Philippians 4:4-5 (NIV)
The Youth Ministry at First Baptist delights in sharing the joy of the Lord with students grades 6-12. In this amazing and formative time in life, students are asking big questions about God, faith, and the world around them. The youth ministry hopes to encourage students to see their life within the great story of God’s faithfulness, love, and salvation in Christ Jesus.
Alongside wonderful volunteers and parents, Pastors Jonathan and Kendall are also involved in youth ministry. Chances are, if one is not in the pulpit that Sunday, then you can find that pastor teaching youth before service. Both served as youth ministers before becoming Co-Pastors and love working with students.
Large Group Meeting
Every Sunday, 9:30-10:15 a.m.
(FBCM Youth Center)
Our main teaching time where students gather at the intersection of God’s work and our lives. Pastor Jonathan and Kendall, alongside a youth volunteer, open up scripture and discuss how God’s work intersects with student’s lives.
After Youth Large Group meetings, students typically attend Donut (Semi) Hour with the whole congregation (10:15-10:45 a.m.).
Small Group Discipleship
Every Sunday 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.
(FBCM Youth Center)
After a time of snacks and maybe a fun game or two, students engage in small group discussion to further the conversation.
This is a time where we both challenge and support one another in our faith and explore what it means to live in the newness of life that Christ gives.
Second Saturday Events
Discipleship, maturity, studying scripture. All of those are important goals we have as a youth ministry. We also believe that all of that is fully compatible with having a whole lot of fun. Once a month, on the Second Saturday of the month, the FBCM Youth Ministry invites students in grades 6-12 to a social event. From frisbee golf, to escape rooms, to Christmas parties, or any number of fun events – these are great opportunities to invite a friend and have a great time.
Other Youth Events Include
