The Student Ministry of First Bible Church
We exist to glorify God by helping students know, love, obey and exalt Jesus Christ by bringing the family and church together in a biblical partnership so that at every level of ministry, from the cradle to college, parents are acknowledged, equipped, assisted and held accountable for the discipleship of their children. We aim to help parents build students into witnesses for Him as Jesus commanded his disciples in Acts 1:8. We look for our students to be witnesses for the Lord here in Decatur and Madison, the United States, and to the ends of the earth.
Sunday Mornings – During the 9:15 hour we have large group teaching accompanied by small group times for both middle school and high school students. Students begin their fellowship with doughnuts and juice while hanging out and catching up with their friends. At 9:30, students break off into the small groups and large group teaching times. Our small group leaders are partners with the parents in the discipleship of the children God has entrusted to First Bible. These student leaders enjoy investing in the lives of our young people.
Wednesday Nights we have one:eight which consists of a meal, fellowship and a time of worship led by the student praise band followed by a message designed specifically for students. We have separate services for our Middle School and High School Students. Middle School meets in the student wing and High School meets in the Field house. Dinner begins at 6:00 and worship follows at 6:40.
Sunday Nights we have a ministry called TREK. Trek is a time of community building and Bible study among the Middle School students.
Sunday Mornings at 9:15 a.m. we offer teaching for both middle school and high school students. We also have weekly bible studies as well as monthly outings.
…And More! Both campuses provide frequent opportunities for students such as retreats, camps, mission trips, Bible studies, hang times, worship band participation, being part of the multi-media team and service opportunities. Through these events the students can grow closer together, but more importantly grow closer to God.
