On Campus Student Ministry
Middle and High School Ministry meets in the LOFT at 9:30 AM on Sundays.
We seek to help middle school students begin to take ownership of their faith through these three basic truths:
- I will love God because He will never stop loving me.
- I will follow Jesus because He knows me better than I know myself.
- I will live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.
We work with high school students to build in them these truths before they graduate:
- I am created to pursue a relationship with my creator.
- I will trust what Jesus did to transform who I need to become.
- I exist to demonstrate God’s love to those around me.
Your First Visit
Here's what to expect when visiting FCBC for the first time:
First, find the Welcome Center. There our guest services volunteers will meet your family and lead your student to the LOFT or the worship center depending on when you arrive.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Student's name
- Student's birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
How Check-in Works
Before Service: You or your student can check-in your student at any available kiosk. A kiosk host will find your student's name in the database. Then they'll give you a name tag. Have your student wear the name tag so we know that your student has been checked into our system.
After Service: After our student ministry activities are complete, your student is free to meet you wherever you choose. We DO NOT require parents to check out students from the LOFT when activities are complete. You can come up to the LOFT to meet your student, or you can meet your student in the Welcome Center, the Worship Center, the parking lot, or wherever seems convenient to your family.
