Here at First Baptist, we love students! We believe that Jesus loves them too and that they aren’t the future of the church, they are the church, right now. We are all about helping students have a life-changing relationship with Jesus, to own their own faith, be connected with others and our church, and serve in a cause that is bigger than them.
Each Wednesday at 6:30pm we gather together for MIX, a student-focused worship gathering. Your student will experience fun games, engaging worship in song, hope-filled and relevant Bible teaching, and small group discussion. Here’s a look at this month’s series, FOCUS!
It’s not easy to stay focused. Especially these days, when we’re connected to a never-ending stream of new notifications, ads, messages, videos, posts, and entertainment, it makes sense if we feel a little distracted sometimes. Maybe you’ve struggled recently to stay focused on your homework, or on the story your friend was telling you, or on the movie you were watching — but have you ever struggled to stay focused when you were spending time with God? In this four-week series, we’re going to get honest about how difficult it can be to stay focused when we’re trying to pray, read the Bible, or grow in our faith. Each week, we’ll explore passages from Psalms and the Gospels as we challenge ourselves to focus on practicing four spiritual disciplines that can help us grow. Together, we’ll try focusing on what God has said, on giving something up, on talking to God, and on rest.
Every Sunday morning at 9:45am students can join us for Life Groups to find community and do life with others going through the same things they are. We believe that life happens best and we grow the most in the context of relationships. Life Groups are an opportunity to study God’s Word and apply it practically to what’s going on in life right now.
Students love to do things and so do we! Good fellowship is a key component to what we do, so we provide opportunities through the school year and summer for students to invite friends, have fun, laugh, and meet Jesus.
