Wednesday night @ FBC This is a critically important service we offer to our students. We meet them with biblical worldview sermons relevant to their stage of life. It begins with a time of fellowship between 5:30 and 6:00 pm. Youth are invited into our upstairs area during this time for various activities and refreshments(Jr. High students sometimes like to have their own space, so we are working to create a separate environment). The Worship time begins at 6:00 pm with contemporary music followed by teaching and age-graded small group discussions. Parents can expect their students to be finished no later than 7:15, but usually by 7:00.
Sunday Morning- The youth department rooms open at 9:30 for students to arrive and spend time together with their leaders, teachers, and friends before Sunday School. Light breakfast foods and drinks are available for everyone. There is also a menu of specialty drinks like caramel frappes, and strawberry smoothies for about the price of the ingredients, $3-$4. (parents are welcome to come in for a visit and refreshments during this time too:-) Age-graded Bible study begins around 10ish. The curriculum we offer is not just a Sunday morning study, it includes a 5-day focal study that prepares the student for the following week's Sunday school discussion. The curriculum can also help lead discussions between you and your student during meal or drive times. Our prayer is that we help assist you as the #1 disciple-maker in your home.
Tuesday Morning Manna Donuts with Shannon @ The Donut Place in Columbia. Students can be dropped off at 7am for a bible study and prayer time. The church van is there to make sure everyone gets to school on time. We encourage our students to invite their friends since almost everyone loves donuts and needs prayer:-)
