What is life about? The FCC Youth Ministry is a real, comfortable, & non-pressure place to figure that out. We believe that Jesus is who He says He is, and offers the only way to real meaning & fulfillment. Nothing else will satisfy. If you’ve ever asked that question or realize there must be more to life than this, then come join us as we figure things out together.

Our desire is to invite students into authentic relationship with Jesus. We believe these relationships share common experiences, knowledge, and commitments. Through worship, personal community, accountability, and biblical teachings, we strive to equip and challenge these students in their faith journeys for a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ.

Connections, Times & places are announced monthly
Community is at the heart of relationship. We will never be able to grow on our own. Connections is a once a month event geared toward welcoming those interested in joining us. It’s a time you can come without feeling isolated or pressured. We sometimes go out to serve others and sometimes we just have some fun. Connections run concurrent with our Junior High Small Group. Our hope is students who enjoy Connections will be interested in coming back to our weekly Small Group.

Sunday Mornings, Sundays, 9:00am
We offer a worship service for 7th & 8th graders where students can be themselves and worship in an environment that is geared for them.

Our focus is on building students’ knowledge of Jesus through the Bible with teachings specifically designed for young teenagers.
