We see a bright future for our Youth Ministry here at FBC! Our vision is that youth turn out to be spiritually mature Christians who are actively involved in their church and community by showing the love of Christ and sharing their faith with others. Our mission is to C.L.I.M.B. — to boost youth to a level of spiritual maturity that is pleasing to the Lord.
Create opportunity for Christian service:
One of the reasons Christ gave gifts to the church was to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. Saints, both young and old, are called to do ministry. (Ministry)\
Lead youth into authentic worship:
It is our duty to usher students into an atmosphere of authentic worship where they can celebrate God's presence and honor God with their lives. (Worship)
Initiate loving relationships between youth, parents, and others:
Through our church community we must steer youth toward love and good works, and encourage one another in meeting together. (Fellowship)
Mentor students through spiritual formation:
During God's work of changing students into the likeness of Jesus, our assignment is to nurture them through this lifelong process. (Discipleship)
Bring youth into a meaningful relationship with Christ
God desires all to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth — this also indicates youth. Furthermore, all Christians are called to witness including our youth. (Evangelism)
Sunday School Ed. Building Basement, Center Room
Middle and High School Youth meet every Sunday from 9:00-10:00 AM. Their teachers are Chris Cortez and Dave Biscaro. They spend time in conversation, interactive lessons, and prayer together. The purpose of Sunday School is to help young people in grades 6-8 and 9-12 listen to God by exploring the Bible and discovering how the Bible guides them in their lives at school, home, and with their friends.
Our youth join in a number of other activities throughout the year, including:
