“Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their lifewill lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.'" Matthew 16:24-25

The Youth Ministry of First Baptist Church seeks to meet students where they are and lead them to a personal and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.  Our vision and mission is for students to become an authentic community reflecting Jesus and taking bold steps to transform lives.

Merge is the mid-week service for Crosswalk Youth Ministry.  Every Wednesday we start at 6:15 and engage through worship music, student testimonies, prayer, and a challenging biblical message.  If you are looking for an incredible time of worship tailored just for youth grades 7-12, come join us this week. 
CYM meets from 6:15-7:15 in Room 241 upstairs.
Grounded is a chance for all students to dig deeper into the word of God, fellowship with other Christ followers, creatively express worship to God, and selflessly serve in the Kingdom.  Each week we focus on a different area of growth.
