The Youth Ministry at First Baptist Church seeks to be a place where young people can feel loved and secure; a place where they can learn about God's gift of grace; a place where they can safely grow in wisdom, stature, and in favor with God and others as Jesus did as a teenager. We consider this ministry not just ministry to teenagers but to the entire family.
Youth are learning about our world on a daily basis from a multitude of informational sources. Some of these sources are reliable while many are not. The Youth Ministry seeks to offer answers to young people that are accurate and truthful instead of deceptive or manipulative. Many youth today feel
that the world is against them. We hope to make First Baptist a place where they feel people are behind them and are for them. Being a teenager means learning about life and sometimes learning the hard way. We strive to help them learn from their mistakes, celebrate their accomplishments, have fun in a safe environment, and experience the hope and forgiveness of God offered through Christ. In a world that encourages individuals to take care of only themselves, we offer young people the opportunity to experience the fulfillment of helping others. We desire for all youth to discover that following Christ is the wisest choice they can ever make.
