Youth Ministry Mission Statement

In partnership with families, the youth ministry of FBC exists to engage 100% of the students under its care, to train them to live independently in Christ, and to send them out as exceptional, godly men and women of integrity who will transform their homes, their schools, their churches, their workplaces, and their worlds for Christ.

Youth Schedule

The youth ministry schedule varies from week to week. You can refer back to this page to see what is coming up.

The monthly schedule typically looks like this:

  1. Week 1 - Sunday School at 9:15 AM
  2. Week 2 - Sunday School at 9:15 AM
  3. Week 3 - Youth serving in various places throughout the church in the morning and then meeting in a home for an evening meal and activity
  4. Week 4 - Sunday School at 9:15 AM
  5. Week 5 (when applicable) - Fellowship of the Fifth (usually breakfast or lunch out)

Allowing the youth time to serve throughout the church and gather in homes facilitates a strong connection with the wider church body. Serving allowing the youth to connect in ways that will keep them involved as they get older. It also helps them understand Jesus’ posture of submission and humility.

As the youth gather in homes, they are able to get to know adults and each other in a more casual setting. Sharing a meal together also models Jesus’ example of eating with others.

Here is the schedule for the next few weeks.
