Teen Ministries

At First Baptist Church, we know the importance of imparting the principles and doctrines of God’s Word to the younger generation. Not only do we want to supply solid Biblical principles and truths to our young people, but we also want to teach them how to make application in their own lives. First Baptist has several programs set up to accomplish this goal.

Upcoming Events

No teen events scheduled in January, 2019

Our Programs:

Wednesday Nights
Our junior and senior high participate in AWANA. This intensive program immerses teens in God’s Word through reading and memorization. Each Wednesday, the teens report to their group leaders to recite verses they’ve memorized and lessons they’ve completed the previous week. Prizes and activities can be earned by participating in and completing the program. Book time is followed each night by games in the gym and a Bible challenge.

Sunday School
In Sunday School the teens are taught Bible lessons in a classroom setting. The principles they learn here provide a solid foundation to help them live a godly life in a sinful world. Our goal for the teenagers is to not merely grow in Bible head knowledge, but more importantly in their relationship with the Lord.

Social Activities
First Baptist has organized activities for the teens on a regular basis. These activities include open gym nights, lock-ins, shopping trips, sports activities, amusement park trips, and more. Through these get-togethers the young people are able to form lasting relationships with other Christians and reach out to their unsaved friends.

Ministry Opportunities
The teens are encouraged to attend visitation where they are given the opportunity to canvass a nearby neighborhood First Baptist frequently takes adults and youth on mission trips to aid a missionary in a project and to evangelize the surrounding area.

Summer Camp and Youth Conferences
Every year we take a group of our kids to summer camp for a time of spiritual renewal. This year the teens are going to The Wilds in North Carolina. Each teen should register on-line at www.wilds.org for Teen Camp in North Carolina, July 23 – July 28, 2018. We also hold an annual youth rally, as well as attend the LIT (Leaders in Training) Conference at Anchor Baptist Church in Millersville, MD.
