Who Are We?
We are the student ministry of FBC Canyon. This means that we minister to and with students who are in 7th-12th grade and their families. We desire to partner with parents to see their students grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
What Are We About?
Three Words. Christ. Community. Culture.
Our mission is to proclaim Christ in community to transform culture.
What Do We Do?
OUR CURRENT SCHEDULE IS DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT DUE TO COVID-19. WE HAVE KEPT THE TYPICAL (NON-COVID) SCHEDULE AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING SO VISITORS CAN GET A FEEL FOR WHAT OUR STUDENT MINISTRY IS LIKE UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES. CURRENTLY, WE DO NOT HAVE ANY STUDENT-SPECIFIC ACTIVITIES ON SUNDAY MORNING AND OUR WEDNESDAY NIGHTS (STARTING BACK JANUARY 20) WE ARE DOING THE GOSPEL PROJECT CURRICULUM FROM 6:00-7:00PM. COME AND JOIN US!
Our goal is to create intentional environments for students to learn God’s Word, connect with others, and serve Christ. We do that three gatherings:
1 – Growth Groups | Wednesdays 6:00 – 7:30 in Student Ministry Center (Cave)
- Growth Groups are small groups of students who come together every Wednesday night at FBC Canyon’s building to grow in the faith. They are led by young adults from FBC Canyon. Students are equipped to study key texts of the Bible on their own throughout the week and then come together in their groups to discuss what they have learned. Though growth groups have a lot of fun together, the goal is to build a community of students centered on Jesus and his Word.
2 – Sunday School–Technology and the Christian Life | Sundays 9:15 – 10:20 a.m. in the Student Ministry Center (Cave)
- Students gather during the Sunday School hour in one large group to receive biblical teaching on relevant discipleship issues. There is a 20-30 minute lesson, and then students break into groups led by adults from the church to discuss what was taught.
3 – Community Groups | Various days and times throughout the week
- Several recent studies have found that the greatest factor in students growth in the faith is significant influence from a handful of adults other than one’s parents. Intergenerational discipleship is absolutely essential to the spiritual growth of students. For that reason, we encourage students to be involved in their parents community groups with other adults. If you are a parent and you are not part of a community group, you can contact Drew at email@example.com to get plugged into one.
