Teen Sunday School Sunday 10 AM
Youth Chapel Sunday 5 PM
Teen Outreach Wednesday 3 PM
The youth ministry at First Baptist is designed to provide a place for teenagers to gather and grow together in the Lord. The ministry is a place of “sharpening” as the teens are taught life principles from the Word of God. Teens, in our ministry, under the leadership of our youth director, encourage each other to live for God and do right! Our weekly Youth Chapel at 5 p.m. on Sundays is a gathering which usually includes games, songs, food, fellowship, and a message from the Word of God! Our teens are involved in youth nights, rallies, outreach, missions trips, youth activities, and camps. These are vital parts of the youth group that help to accomplish the goal of growing young people in Christ.
