First Baptist Church Student Ministry exists to Care for all, Reach the lost,
Obey the teachings of Christ, Surrender daily, and Serve as Christ served. We are committed to developing the spiritual lives of students through the study of God’s word, prayer, and fellowship with other believers. Youth activities and events are designed with the purpose of supporting students as they learn to connect with God, with each other, and with the world at large. Weekly activities include opportunities for Bible study, worship, scripture memorization, and fun! Our students participate in Xtreme Winter, DiscipleNow, Youth Choir Tour, as well as Centrifuge/Mfuge. We would love for you to join us!
Why the Cross? The reason we chose the cross to be our theme is because of what it means to Christians; the cross is where salvation was bought by Christ. When believers fully grasp the love of Christ and His sacrifice it changes everything!

Youth Sunday School
Youth Sunday School begins at 9:15 a.m. each Sunday with a large group time set aside to share prayer requests, make announcements, and introduce the day’s Bible lesson. Students then divide into small groups for Bible study. Our studies are designed to show students where the Bible meets their lives by focusing on topics that really matter, asking thought-provoking questions, and guiding students to discover Biblical truths in order to make practical applications in their lives.
Join us this Sunday to grow in your faith and learn what the Bible means in your life!
Acteens is a missions organization for girls in grades 7 – 12 which meets on Sundays beginning at 3:30 p.m. Through Acteens, teenage girls have opportunities to grow in their relationships with God and their peers. Acteens learn to look beyond themselves and become actively involved in missions and ministry.
One component of Acteens is MissionsQuest, the individual achievement plan designed to help girls develop their missions lifestyle. Our Acteens are currently completing the Quest for Vision.
Led by our Minister of Music David Bishop, Youth Choir meets each Sunday beginning at 5:00 p.m. and is open to all students in grades 7 – 12. The Youth Choir sings on a regular basis during Sunday morning worship. One of the highlights of the year is the Youth Choir Tour. Attendance requirements, trip details, and cost information for this year’s trip will be available at a later date. In addition to our Youth Choir, we also have a Youth Handbell Choir. Handbells meet on Sundays at 4:30 p.m.
Youth Bible Drill
Youth Bible Drillers meet each Sunday at 5:15 p.m. Bible Drill is a wonderful opportunity for students in grades 7 – 12 to develop skills in the use of the Bible, increase their knowledge of the Bible, memorize scripture, and learn to apply the Bible to everyday life experiences. Youth can choose between using the King James Version and the Holman Christian Standard Bible. Beginning in March, participants compete in drills at the church, association, and state levels. Bible Drill participants celebrate their accomplishments with a year-end trip.

Youth Bible Study begins at 6:30 p.m. each Wednesday evening. It’s a relaxed time for students to read God’s word and learn to apply it to everyday life. Students discuss what it means to be a Christian and how to live in a secular world. Through JOURNEY923 we will explore what Jesus calls us to do In Luke 9:23 – deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him.
Matthew 25 Ministry
In Matthew 25 Jesus made it clear that we are to care for the world. Students should take this command seriously. Opportunities to carry out this calling are made available through our Matthew 25 ministry. Past projects have included washing car windows in local supermarket parking lots, handing out free snacks in ICU waiting rooms at local hospitals, volunteering at Wesley House, and reverse trick-or-treating at Aldersgate. Students also have the opportunity to participate in various domestic and international mission trips. This summer included trips to Crown Pointe, Indiana and Trinidad.
