The Philosophy of Youth Ministry at First Baptist Church of Weber City, VA: This youth ministry will meet students where they are in their walk with Christ and seek to elevate their relationship with Christ through outreach, visits, encouragement, and, most of all, Bible based teaching and discipleship. It is our goal to increase the number of students reached, to increase the relationship of each student to Christ, to increase the relationship of each student to his or her brothers and sisters in Christ, and increase the relationship of the student to his or her family all through the demonstrated love of Christ and the Word of God.
Wednesday night youth ministry is our weekly meeting on, surprise, Wednesday nights from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. We meet in the Youth Room located upstairs in the gym at the First Baptist Church of Weber City, Weber City campus. The first hour each week is dedicated to eating, fellowshipping, and help with homework if needed. Each week we will have supper provided for the teens (pizza, chicken nuggets, and a rotating menu of items), as well as various snacks and drinks during the first hour. Also during the first hour, there are games to play including foosball, pool, and ping-pong. During the second hour, we all gather together in the middle worship area for prayer, worship music lead by Kari White and youth members, and then Bible study. We conclude the meetings at 8:00 PM. All FBC WC Community and WC campus teens and their friends 7th to 12th grade are welcome.
Our Sunday night Youth Worship and Bible study meets from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. We meet in the Youth Room located upstairs in the gym at the First Baptist Church of Weber City, Weber City campus. The first hour of Sunday nights is dedicated to fellowship and friendship before moving into worship music. Kari White leads the youth in worship music. The goal of this time is to both learn new music and learn how to more openly worship God through music. As the second hour begins, we switch from worship music to Bible study. Currently on Sunday nights, we are studying through the Book of Romans chapter by chapter. The goal of this Bible study is to teach the teens about God through this Book of the Bible, but also to help teach the teens how to read the Bible and learn on their own. We conclude at 7:00 PM on Sunday nights. All FBC WC Community and WC campus teens and their friends 7th to 12th grade are welcome.
