Wonder

won-der \’wən-dər \ n; a cause of astonishment or admiration; miracle; the quality of exciting amazed admiration; rapt attention or astonishment at something mysterious; a feeling of doubt or uncertainty.

v; to be in a state of wonder; to feel surprise; to feel curiosity or doubt
adj; wondrous, wonderful; exciting amazement or admiration; effective or efficient beyond anything previously known or anticipated

Feeling wonder at God’s grace and faithfulness marks all we do, in our welcome, worship and work. We embrace the mystery of God’s work in our world and throughout history. We gather together to wonder together about the questions of our faith. At First Baptist, we welcome questions and uncertainties, understanding that often faith rests in discovering further questions than finding concrete answers. We invite the myriad ways that God is at work in each of us – through our creativity, intellect, relationships.

The First Baptist Youth Group is open to all 6th-12th graders. Together, we seek to learn what it means to follow Christ in our lives.

We are learning how to love God and love our neighbors through study, prayer, worship, service, and fellowship. We are seeking to be the hands and feet of the body of Christ in this time and in this place.

We believe that we cannot be Christians alone – we need each other to help us figure out our faith. We need others around us who will model for us, encourage us, and help us be all of what God wants us to be.

Sunday Evenings

We begin on Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m. with games and fellowship. After playing together, we share a meal and a table at 5:30. Meals are provided by different youth families each week.

At 6:00 we move into the sanctuary for Lumos – a time of reflection, worship, prayer. What we do rotates each week. This is our time to focus and center before moving into our small groups.

We split up into small groups – two or three, depending on the week – from 6:25-7:25. During this time we learn together – sometimes we use DVDs, Bible study, discussion, art projects, or group conversations –and explore how our faith intersects and applies to our everyday lives.

Sunday Morning

Youth Sunday School meets each week at 9:30 in the Youth Room located above the gym (Roger Williams Room). The Sunday School is split into two groups – middle school and high school. Sunday School is a wonderful opportunity for the youth of the church to deepen their faith in Christ in the company of other youth and with the help of adult leaders.

Mission

We believe in experiencing what God has for us and not just reading or talking about it. We live out our faith through different events, service projects, and trips.
