Encouragement & Development Teen & Student Ministries at FBC

We believe the teenage years are when many life-long habits are developed, so it’s a key time to develop with Christ’s teachings. At Friendship, the goal is that our teens would grow to know and love Jesus, worship God, and enjoy Him forever. They spend time together in the Scriptures learning about God and His rescuing work through Jesus. And while our teens are dedicated to serious discipleship, they are also committed to having some not-so-serious fun. At FBC, your teen will build relationships, grow as a person, and learn more about God’s Word–all while having a blast!


Sunday School

Each Sunday, teens meet together for a time of Bible teaching and life application. They will have the opportunity to fellowship (sometimes over breakfast) before sitting down for an interactive time of solid biblical application from teachers who understand what it means to be a teenager. Our study of God’s Word includes topics such as understanding and sharing our faith, following God’s leading in our lives, navigating choices in a complex culture, and many other Bible subjects. Classes are divided between grades 7-8 and grades 9-12.


Events, Camps, & Mission Trips

There’s always something going on for teens at FBC. In addition to our Wednesday evening Youth Meetings for 9-12 graders and Life 2.0 groups for 7-8 graders, we also host and organize a variety of events, summer camps, outreach programs, missions trips, and more throughout the year. We also have a Youth Leadership Council where we encourage our younger members to help lead our youth group and train them to serve more broadly in whichever church God leads them to as adults.


Friendship Christian School

Friendship Christian School (FCS) is one of the most important ministries of FBC. FCS offers curricula for students ranging from three-year-old preschool all the way up through 12th grade. We also offer a Focused Learning Program to meet the needs of students with certain limited learning challenges. For further information about Friendship Christian School, we encourage you to visit our website.


God’s unchanging Word

Today’s teen culture is heavily driven by media, technology, and the Internet. There’s a lot of noise out there, so it’s difficult at times to continually “set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2). God’s Word and message are unchanging! So, our teen ministries are designed to be exciting, fun, and engaging to our teens without sacrificing the gospel. We encourage our teens to enjoy their fellowship together, but it’s a very important time to grow and develop as disciples of Jesus Christ.
