At First Baptist Church we believe that teen years are pitvial in a person's life. We believe that every teenager needs a strong foundation and someone to help them be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to teach teens how to let their lights shine in such a way that others might see this good work and glorify our Father.
We call ourselves The Illuminators because Jesus said we are the light of the world (Matthew 5:16). Middle schoolers and high schoolers have a huge opportunity awaiting them at First Baptist.
We structure our youth ministry on three basic elements that Christ gave us and we call it the 3G:
(1) The Great Command
(2) The Great Commission
(3) The Golden Rule
Small groups meet every Sunday morning and enjoy breakfast, fellowship, prayer, and a solid Bible discussion.
GLOW is a midweek Bible study for teens who come to be challenged by each other. GLOW stands for Go Light Our World. That's exactly what Jesus called us to do and that is our desire at First Baptist Church.
Every week we start the night off in the church gym for Gym Time. We compete in high energy games such as football, basketball, volleyball, corn-hole, and four-square as well as many other games. Then our Youth Pastor, Bro. Dustin, leads us in a large group challenge from God's Word. After this, we all join together in the fellowship hall for Fun & Food Time. We get to eat, socialize, and play games.
GLOW meets every Wednesday evening at 6:30pm
One of the great benefits about being an Illuminator at First Baptist Church is the weekly and monthly activities.
