Ministry to Youth
Seeking to know Christ and make Him known
The youth ministry at First Baptist Church on Fifth seeks to equip young people for the lifelong adventure of knowing and following Jesus. Our youth ministry seeks to be a safe place where 6th-12th grade students are:
reaching – exploring the Christian scriptures and encountering the gospel in relevant ways
growing – deeper in their faith, becoming more Christ-like
giving – developing an appreciation for grace and living generously
serving – participating in God’s work in our community and beyond
connecting – with God, others and world in fun and creative ways
When We Meet
Sunday mornings at 9:15 am, middle and high schoolers meet in the Youth Room for Bible study and snacks.
Building community is an important part of our student ministry. We build relationships through gatherings, cookouts, camp, retreats, mission trips, and more.
