Welcome to Thirst
All of us know what physical thirst feels like. Jesus used that sensation to describe a need that all of us have for something more important than even water. In John chapter 4, Jesus said to a woman drawing water from a well, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
The youth ministry at FCBC is all about pointing people to Jesus Christ, the life-giving source of hope, joy and satisfaction!
Our basic philosophy is this:
- To build a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ.
- To build dynamic relationships with fellow believers.
- To build dynamic relationships with unbelievers and share the love of Christ with them.
A Message to Students
A Message to Parents
One of the distinct purposes of our youth ministry at FCBC is to be a resource to parents as they raise their children in the ways of God. Each of our events and ministries should be a blessing to you as a parent as well as a place where kids can be fed and find answers to the serious questions of life.
Our youth ministry goal is to come alongside you, and serve as a catalyst for 6th-12th grade students to take seriously the words of Christ for themselves.
Growing up as a junior high or high school student in today’s world is magnitudes more difficult than it was 50 years ago. Temptations, frustrations, and discouragements are very real. The secularization of the school system creates a huge need for the truths of God’s Word to impact the worldview of our young men and women. It is the goal of this ministry to inform the mind and conscience about the all-satisfying person of Jesus Christ!
