FBC Youth Ministry


FBC student ministry is led by the Youth Council which includes both youth and adults planning ministry opportunities that align with the mission of the church to show God’s love, tell the Good News to all people, grow spiritually and serve our community and world. Our student ministry focuses on building relationships, both with each other and God. We seek to engage middle school and high school age students in deep, meaningful, and lasting ways that lead 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.

Youth Registration – We would like all youth and volunteers to register via Realm. This will help us gather needed information and communicate through email to those participating. Use the link or QR code below.  Registration Link.

Spring 2024

The last couple of months have been very busy for the youth in our church. On February 4th the youth hosted the annual Senior Adult Banquet at the Grand Ole Opry with a little Hee Haw mixed in. It was a delicious meal and an entertaining evening for everyone.

On February 9th 18 youth and 10 chaperones attended the Winter Jam concert at the PNC Arena in Raleigh. It was an awesome time of fellowship and Christian music of all genres from slow, to rap, to heavy medal. Everyone had a great time and is already looking forward to next year.

On February 11th the youth hosted the annual Souper Bowl Soup Kitchen where they raised $1,800 for Clayton Area Ministries (CAM). We are so thankful for the help of the Baptist Men with making our sandwiches, WMU groups for providing deserts, and all those that made delicious soup for the event. Following the Souper Bowl Soup Kitchen the youth participated in the annual Toilet Bowl on the lawn. This is a very interesting game of flag football when the youth wear diapers for helmets. Our MVPs and recipients of the golden toilet plunger were Hunter Delaney and Avery Johnson. There is also a golden toilet seat hanging in the youth room with a picture to capture the fun.

We had our annual Elevation weekend on March 1st – March 3rd. The theme for the weekend was the importance of having Christian friends. The youth stayed at host homes overnight where they had small group devotions. Our speakers for the weekend were Reverend Troy Lee and Skylar Lee from Overflow Church. Our Praise band was the Youth Band from Clayton Crossings church that was led by Jason Lee. In addition to worship and small groups we worked together to do some mission work around the church, cleaning foyers and stairwells. We also had a fun scavenger hunt where we ventured all around Clayton to find clues related to the friendship story. The weekend concluded with Youth Sunday where we were able to share our weekend fun with the congregation and heard the testimony of our one and only senior this year, Kiley Woodard. We are excited to share that the Lord was working on the hearts of our youth and two made the decision to commit their lives to God, Miss Aubrey Payton and Miss Phia Parker.

Our Youth are currently working through another seven-week devotion series on Wednesday nights entitled “Don’t Believe your Eyes”. This will be our final series for the year.

Our Acteens are working through their Quest for Confidence and will finish up at the recognition service on May 5th. Our Challengers have been putting the hands and feet of God into action this semester by helping at With Love for Jesus and doing yard work for those in need.

On Saturday, May 4th our youth will have a yearend celebration. We will be going to play paint ball in Angier and have a cookout to follow.

Our last Wednesday night gathering will be on May 8th.

Our year may be ending but we are still actively preparing for our mission trip to Altoona, PA June 23rd – June 29th with a group of 30 youth and 7 chaperones. We will have a Mission Trip Meeting on Wednesday, May 15th.

These youth continue to shine their light for Christ!

About Youth


These are mission based groups sponsored by the WMU organization. Acteens is a group for young ladies in 6th – 12th grades. Our Acteens are currently split between Middle School and High School ages. Middle School Acteens work through MissionQuest. There are six quests in this journey. There are Quests for character, confidence, courage, creativity, excellence, and vision. Each quest has four sections: heart, soul, mind, and strength. High School Acteens focus specifically on mission service to the church and community. 

Challengers is a group for young men in 6th – 12th grades. Challengers focus on more labor intensive mission projects for those within our church. All groups are committed to missions within the church and community. They join together to have fun, do mission projects and fellowship as they grow in their relationships with Christ and others. They meet monthly on Sundays.


Wednesday Nights
Wednesday nights are a time for youth to come together for fellowship, games, devotion, and small groups. It is a chance to bond with your friends personally and spiritually. Devotions will be focused on ways to grow in your faith and discuss topics of interest. We know youth are busy so the evening is broken up so that you can come to all or part of the activities. The Fellowship Dinner is an opportunity for youth to enjoy a meal together and have fun discussions around the table. Fellowship and Games in the Upper Room is an opportunity to just have fun together. Come play ping pong, foosball, Xbox, sit around on the couches and chat with your friends about what is going on at school, rest, relax, etc. Youth Devotions and Small Groups start together as a whole group and then split into small groups by age and gender for a deeper discussion on the topics. 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. It is a time to really connect with God’s direction for your life.


Youth Activites and Trips
The youth council has planned at least one additional activity each month outside of the regular scheduled events. These activities are meant to provide a chance to just have fun and build relationships crucial to tackle the challenges of middle and high school years. We plan to attend sporting events at the schools of our youth to support them in their extracurricular activities.  In addition to local activities our youth have the opportunity to attend two trips each year. Fall Rush in the October timeframe and a Summer Mission trip usually in June. We encourage youth to come and bring their friends to join in all the joy youth can bring!
