Community Groups – Sunday mornings begin with a breakfast for teens at 9:30 a.m. in the Warehouse OC and we transition to our small groups at 9:45 a.m. Groups are based on grade and gender and each group is led by an adult leader along with a university student as a co-leader.
Wednesday Nights – Every Wednesday night during the school year we have a dinner for all teens in the Warehouse OC beginning at 5:30 p.m. Teens eat, hang out and play in the gym until our youth service begins at 6:00 p.m. The service is designed for teens as we use music, games, videos, and a Bible study to help our teens grow in Christ.

Youth (7th – 12th Grade)
The youth ministry of FBC Starkville is a place for teens to discover Jesus and grow in Him. In order to grow in Jesus our teens meet each Sunday morning in a small group with a caring adult and university student in order to discover and discuss what the Bible says and how to apply it to their lives. On Wednesday evenings we gather for our weekly youth service that’s designed for teens. A key part of a teen’s spiritual growth is through service. So, rather it’s serving in our preschool or children’s ministry or going on a summer mission trip we aim to provide regular service opportunities so that teens can learn to serve our world.
Our youth ministry aims to be a partnership between the church and the home. We know that no one has a greater impact on a teen than moms and dads. So, we want to partner with moms and dads in order to see teens reach their full potential.
