Welcome to FBCL's YOUTH Department! Our goal? It's simple: to know Christ and to make Him known. That is what the Bible teaches, and that is what this group of 7th- 12th graders are all about. Whether engaged in Bible study, Crazy Games Night, or serving the community -- this is our focus.
Someone once said that those things we learn in pleasure we never forget. Many of our youth outings, activities and times of learning are fun, but don't assume growth is not happening! Our leaders are committed to growing in their own walks with the Lord, as well as embracing their roles as teachers & mentors with their time, talent and hearts.
OUR COMMITMENT What we practice, we learn.
What we learn, we become.
What we become -- has consequences.
The following two verses have become a cornerstone to our youth as a whole:
"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."(1 Tim 4:12, NIV)
"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." (Micah 6:8, NIV)
Learning God's Word is important. Living it is powerful.
THE WEEKLY NORM:
Worship at 9:30 AM in the Sanctuary and small group Bible study at 11:00 AM
SUNDAY EVENING Youth Discipleship Training at 6:00 PM
MONDAY 6:15 PM - Youth Visitation, meeting in the Community Room and going out as a group from there
WEDNESDAY 7:00 PM - Youth ROC Night (Reaching Others for Christ)
BIG CHANGES There are BIG changes taking place for the benefit of our kids in the youth group...the largest, is the purchase of a new facility right next door that allows our teens to continue growing and spread out. The "YAC" Center, as we affectionately call it (Youth and Community), promises to not only give the space & opportunity to connect and grow, but also the ability to serve the youth & community of Lakewood. Stay tuned as we move in officially and begin to see how God leads!
