Junior high Ministry

Youth Ministry is on Summer Break! There are no Wednesday night meetings until August 14th. Contact a leader if you have questions!

Who We Are

The Junior High Ministry at FCBC is for all students grades 6-8 who desire a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Thirst aims to come alongside parents in the shepherding, teaching, and discipling ministries entrusted to them by providing a Christ-centered community in which students can develop and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and with each other. The team behind Junior High Ministry is made up of leaders who love the Lord and want to serve their students. 

What We Do

Youth Group at FCBC is for all students grades 6-12, and meets on Wednesday nights at 7:00 p.m. at the church. We preach and teach the Scriptures, apply them in small groups, and worship God through our music, recreation, and partnerships with families. Leaders strive to point middle school students to God and His community in every aspect of life.

Please join us on any Wednesday night! We'd love to meet you, get to know you better, and get you plugged with other Junior Highers.

The Team

Our volunteers are both parents of students in the ministry and those who simply have a heart for Youth Ministry. Our goal is to take a “Priesthood of All Believers” mentality (1 Peter 2), which means that our volunteers are involved at multiple levels of our weekly Youth Ministry efforts, while still holding down full-time jobs or families!

Primarily, our volunteers serve as Small Group Leaders. This is a weekly position of leading, shepherding, and encouraging a smaller group of students that are differentiated in grade-specific categories. It’s a huge task!
