Wednesday Nights for Youth
Youth Lounge and Kitchenette Open
5:30 p.m. during school year
Many students bring their own meal, others come and just "hang out" before the small group meetings begin for the evening in our dining room and/or game room.
5:45-7:15 p.m. during school year
Students meet together to hang out and catch up with their friends, then in their small groups, they discuss their "highs and lows" of the week and prayer requests. Our small groups utilize the "LIVE!" Curriculum for Bible study. Guests are welcome to visit a small group and don't have to start at the beginning.

"LIVE!" Curriculum: This curriculum is conversational in nature and offers a blend of both foundational and topical lessons. The foundational studies are scriptural lessons that help answer questions about who God is, what Jesus taught, and lessons about different people whose stories we read in the Bible. In order to understand how to apply the Bible to our lives today, we must first know what it says. The topical lessons give students an opportunity to use the knowledge they gleaned from the foundational lessons and apply them to their modern, daily lives.
NC Bible Drill: It's more than memorization
First Baptist Student Ministries believes that the heart can't love what the mind doesn't know. We are thrilled to now offer Bible Drill as a part of our ministry. Bible Drill is an opportunity to memorize Scripture passages, but also to learn specific life applications that go along with them. Students are not required to compete; however, those who choose to do so, and who successfully reach the benchmarks set forth by the NC Bible Drill are eligible for an extra MFUGE supplement as an incentive, along with the possibility of earning a scholarship from the NC Baptist State Convention.
A Call To Invest in Our Neighbors
During the school year, our small groups alternate between serving in the community and having small group Bible study at the church. On a given Wednesday night, it's likely that one or more of the small groups will be away from the church while another is at church learning, discussing, and praying together. The next week, the groups trade off. This gives life to balanced approach we enjoy at First Baptist Student Ministries. We sometimes serve some shut-ins from our own church family. Other times, we serve organizations like:
Due to the nature of some projects, most A.C.T.I.O.N. Wednesdays will begin at 5:30 instead of 5:45. Reminders will always be sent about this monthly schedule amendment.
