Our Middle School and High School groups are where your youth takes the next step in their faith to "Grow in Christ." Because we believe Scripture is clear that parents are to be the primary disciple-makers of their children, our desire is to partner with you to help your youth become disciples of Jesus through the following groups.
Wednesday Youth Groups
Our Middle School and High School groups gather the 2nd-5th Wednesdays of the month to journey to work through the Faithweaver curriculum. Similar to the kids, this teaches the storyline of the Bible over a three-year period, but with application geared towards youth. Group times include a time of worship, the week's Bible story, activities to reinforce the main lesson, and game time in the gym. Our youth are also sent home with a summary of the week's Bible story and family devotions to help reinforce the lesson, enabling parents to continue the discipleship process throughout the week.
If you are desiring for your youth to grow in a group, please contact Jacque at
Wednesday Outreach Teams
The first Wednesday of each month, our youth are with their parents, learning how to serve and reach others on an outreach team. We believe serving on these teams helps our youth begin their journey of helping others live in light of the gospel.
In addition to our groups and teams, our Middle School and High school students engage in a monthly activity to build community and help reach their friends with the gospel. Here are the activities coming up:
In January, we will be heading to Iowa City for our annual ice skating event. This is always a request and honestly, super fun to watch. If there is enough interest we will all load up in the bus at FBC on January 19 at 11:00 and head to Coralridge Mall, and plan to return to the church at 4:00. (If we have a small but mighty group, we may look for volunteer drivers.)
February brings us to a day at Snowstar on the 17th. We plan to leave with sack lunches from church. Since Monday (February 18) is a no school day, we plan to return to the church around 9:00 pm. We will plan to have supper at Snowstar for a break in the action. Fortunately, Snowstar can provide snow for the day if the rest of the area has none.
March 29, 2019, will be at the Stogdill's for a Pizza and movie in PJ's. The youth will make their own pizzas from ingredients provided and then hang out with movies and games. We want to go extreme casual on this one so PJ's are encouraged, but not required.
Our high schoolers are very busy and active in April, and we have an incredible church wide Passover Seder scheduled on April 19 (Good Friday), so we are encouraging our youth to join in and bring friends!
May will also be very busy for us with a Pizza Ranch fundraiser on May 8, and a Luau. The seniors who attended the planning meeting have requested a substitution for the annual lock in, so we are planning a Luau on May 31. The event will be held poolside at Stogdill's, and will include a bonfire. This end of school year celebration should be a hit!
