Sunday Mornings: First Student Small Groups

Have you ever wished you could take a huge step forward in your personal relationship with God? Have you ever wanted more of God, more of His plan for your life, more of a connection with people? Then you should join us for Small Groups. This isn’t just another Bible Study – it’s a way God is working to transform us into fully devoted followers. Sunday Mornings: We hang out, & talk about life & Jesus (with some food too from 9:00 to 10:00 AM)





Parents, we want to come alongside you and partner with you! Stay connected with what is happening in our ministry by following us on social media and using our Parenting Resources.


Parenting Resources







When it comes to first student ministries, we have a simple formula that we have seen work over and over. Here it is: A caring adult + a student = great stuff. That’s it! It’s not magic, but we know it works! We know that when a caring adult is involved in the life of a student, great stuff happens. Will you consider being one of those caring adults? Our team would love to have you join us! (By the way, we believe that you are never too old for student ministry!)

Ministry plan for students of  7 - 12th grades.

Student Ministry Purpose (why we do ministry)

First Students is designed with young people (7th - 12th grades) in mind, and is dedicated to providing places and spaces for those students to connect with Christ, each other, and the church.

Philosophy of Ministry (how we do ministry)

We carry this out through our small groups, large group worship gatherings, and our students being in constant community with older leaders and each other. 

Goals For Student Ministry

  1.  To love and share the gospel of Jesus with every student who comes thorugh our doors. 

  2. Provide a format for Christian students to share life by worshipping, serving, and having fun together.

  3. To lead students to grow in their knowledge and love of Jesus and prepare them to share the gospel with those who have not heard.

  4. Build a student ministry our teenagers, parents, and church can all take pride in.

  5. Maintain a standard of excellence in everything we do.
