The zONE

The Youth Ministry of First Baptist Church has a goal of teaching students the Bible so that they can learn and apply these truths to their everyday lives. We also seek to help students grow in their areas of giftedness as they mature spiritually and physically. To accomplish these goals, we explore all areas of life as we study the scriptures. Our focus is on helping students face and overcome the challenges of life by learning to follow Jesus’ example.

During the week, we have opportunities for students to engage in several activities. On Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m., we meet together for an hour of Bible Study. The teachers are prepared and ready to help students better understand the relationship of the Bible to everyday life. Students and teacher discuss the lessons, share their experiences, and explore how the Bible gives direction for daily circumstances. Following Bible Study, the youth meet with the rest of the church for fellowship and then worship.

The zONE gathers on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. We usually have a worship time, fellowship, and games. A time of devotion and study follows. When you join us on Wednesday evening, you will learn from scriptures about one of the Seven Checkpoints: Authentic Faith, Spiritual Disciplines, Moral Boundaries, Healthy Friendships, Wise Choices, Ultimate Authority, and Others First.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer I ask for...
I ask you neither for health nor for sickness, for life nor for death; but that you may dispose of my health and my sickness, my life and my death, for your glory... You alone know what is expedient for me; you are the sovereign master, do with me according to your will. Give to me, or take away from me, only conform my will to yours. I know but one thing, Lord, that it is good to follow you, and bad to offend you. Apart from that, I know not what is good or bad in anything. I know not which is most profitable to me, health or sickness, wealth or poverty, nor anything else in the world. That discernment is beyond the power of men or angels, and is hidden among the secrets of your providence, which I adore, but do not seek to fathom.
