About Youth & Student Ministries at First Baptist Church of Clayton

Student Ministry
At First Baptist we value worship, discipleship, missions, ministry, and fellowship for all people to enter jointly into a lasting and growing relationship with God. In our student ministry, we seek to engage middle school, high school, and college age students in a deep, meaningful, and lasting way that leads to the development and ownership of a faith that lasts.

We invite and encourage everyone to come and experience all that God is doing in and through our ministry together.

Every week, we meet for worship, Bible study, relationship building, and fun fellowship through our various small and large group programs and activities. Our student ministry is student and adult led and finds its heartbeat in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.

Throughout the year, we take times to retreat and reflect. We also take time to serve in missions locally, regionally, and internationally.

Our students are broken into Middle School and High School Class. Our curriculum comes from Student Life Bible Study and involves biblical studies, videos, skits and interactive activities. Throughout the year we engage in meaningful lessons that challenge the mind, heart, and hands.

Our students are broken into various small groups based on age. The groups engage in Christ-centered discussions about everyday life issues and struggles. The small group ministry is intended to help students openly discuss their faith in accountability groups.

In response to vocal talents of our students, we created our student ensemble. The ensemble students display their talents throughout the year in various services.

On Wednesday nights we gather for Youth Group. The program centers on applicable biblical topics through a message, videos, games and discussion. Youth Group is a more relaxed program as students and adults hang out in the game room before Bible study.

Acteens is for girls in grade 6th – 12th. They meet on the first Sunday of each month from 4:00 pm to 5:00 p.m., however the date may change if there are conflicts with school activities that would prevent the girls from attending Acteens.
