YOUTH WEDNESDAYS

sMALL gROUPS

5:45-7:15 p.m. (during the school year)
  • Students meet together to hang out and catch up with their friends, then in their small groups, they discuss their "highs and lows" of the week, and their prayer requests.  Following our laid back warm-up time, we dive into our discussion-oriented small group Bible study for the week.  Once a month, we have A.C.T.I.O.N. Wednesday.  See more about A.C.T.I.O.N. Wednesday below.
  • Guests are welcome to visit a small group at any time; they don't have to start at the beginning of a series or semester.

What we teach

Milestones (2020-2023)
As students enter the teen years, they move toward a deeper understanding of foundational spiritual truths. Milestones will lead students through 10 core biblical concept areas, offering explanations and opportunities for exploration of the following core truths of Christianity: God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Bible, Salvation, Creation, Church, People, Family, Community & World.  As students grow in spiritual development, they will be able to progress in their faith and ability to know and process the truth of Scripture with regard to each of these areas.  Since our Wednesday studies are discussion-oriented, it offers the perfect setting to discuss these deep truths of the faith, allowing plenty of time for questions.

A.C.T.I.ON. Wednesdays

A.C.T.I.O.N. is not only what we do, but it stands for "A Call To Invest in Our Neighbors."  During the school year, our small groups alternate between serving in the community and having small group Bible study at the church.  On a given Wednesday night, one small group may be away from the church while another is at church learning, discussing, and praying together.  The next week, the groups trade off.  This gives life to balanced approach we enjoy at First Baptist Student Ministries.  

What would I be doing on an A.C.T.I.O.N. Wednesday?
We sometimes serve shut-ins from our own church family.  Other times, we assemble "Manna Bags" full of non-perishable supplies in Ziploc bags to give our church members to offer people in need at stoplights, etc.  We also assemble treat bags for local football teams and seasonal things like candy bags for a Halloween outreach.  Over the years, we've also served alongside organizations like:
