In the FBC Youth Ministry, we seek to connect the passions of our youth with God’s passions already at work in the world. We are an inclusive community of imperfect people striving for authenticity and fellowship. Come and be a part of a great group of youth as we journey together. 

Everyone is welcome at FBC!

Upcoming Events!

Youth Summer Mission Trip: Washington DC | June 21-28, 2020

This summer, we are thrilled to announce that we will be going to DC on June 21-28. We will be staying at National Baptist Memorial Church in downtown DC, which is an easy Metro ride from all the big sites of the city. During the week, we will help lead National Baptist’s kids summer camp. We’ll get to do everything from play games to crafts to preparing lunch to leading the Bible story. They’re excited to have us and it’ll be a great opportunity to hear stories, make friendships, and build relationships. Plans are also underway for us to see a Washington Nationals baseball game, visit some Smithsonian museum, and see other DC sites. Cost for this trip is $225 total and the deposit is $75. If you’re student and would like to earn money towards the cost of the trip, sign up to help with Trivia! Night by talking to Chris Cherry. You won’t want to miss this trip!

Spots are limited, so sign up today! Mission Trip Sign Up  

 

 Passport Missions Camp | July 6-11, 2020 

One of the best opportunities of the year is attending Passport Missions Camp on July 6-11. We will again be headed to Greenville, SC where the camp is hosted by Furman University. Youth will have Bible study groups, mission sites, nightly parties, and plenty of free time. We’ll get the chance to meet youth from churches all over the region and, in the past, these connections have turned into real friendships. The camp theme this year is BE and we’ll use each day to connect to the ideas of Be Still, Be Loved, Be One, and Be With. Passport is always fun and always meaningful. You won’t want to miss it! Cost is $445 total and the deposit is $100. If you’re student and would like to earn money towards the cost of the trip, sign up to help with Trivia! Night by talking to Chris Cherry. As always, spots are limited, so sign up today!
