Our student ministry exists to glorify God in worshiping Him according to the Scriptures, by loving others and in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus to all, that the church, may by grace, grow in their knowledge of God and his holiness, and reach those outside of the church.
First Family Church's Student Ministry is a small group that meets two times a week for the primary focus of worshiping God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The preteen and teenage years are often difficult and full of choices that impact the rest of life. Our hope is that by growing in the knowledge of God and His holiness through worshiping Him according to the Scriptures, we will be better prepared to live in a world that is contrary to Christianity. We recognize that "salvation is from the Lord" (1 Thess 5:9) and that "the flesh profits nothing" (John 6:63) and so because of this, we preach the truth as it is in Christ that the individual may, by the grace and mercy of God, see their sin, repent from it, receive, and confess Christ as Lord and believe. Salvation starts with God and it ends with God (John 15:16) - even the faith that we have in salvation is a gift from Him (Eph 2:8) and so it is then our fervent prayer that God will work salvation in the life of His people and specifically those who bless us by letting us minister to them here at FFC, as we all hope to grow in a biblical worldview. Parents play a big role in the spiritual development of their children, and so they are always welcome to attend and be here and help (truly - it is a student ministry that is looking to help parents).
• Wednesday nights, 6:30-8:30pm. Currently, we are going through a series in the book of Revelation, verse by verse. The title of the series is "The Apocalypse of Jesus Christ." Expect the messages to be of Biblical exposition, exegetical and Christ exalting. For a portion of the night, we split up for small groups, but the rest of the night, we are together.
• Sunday mornings attend Sunday School at 9am then join us from 10:15- 12:00 noon for the main service. Our Sunday morning curriculum takes advantage of material from RC. Sproul on the topic of Systematic Theology and is taught by a rotation of Student Ministry workers.
In addition to teaching the students the importance of the local church and all that comes with that, we also hope to teach them about God's work in other parts of the world. In order to do this, we support a faithful missionary or fininancially support a child in another part of the world. Currently, we are supporting the work of a missionary family in Papua. Every Wednesday night, as part of our worship, we take an offering and pray for Trevor and his family as the serve the Lord and when they provide updates, we share them with the students. Recently, Heartcry Missionary Society did a video on the work that they are doin. You can view it below -
