Generation 2/9 Student Ministry
We claim I Peter 2:9 as our theme verse and believe we are the generation Jesus is using to make His name Famous here and across the world. The Student Ministry at First is centered around two weekly gatherings. We gather at 9am on the first day of the week for an age and gender specific bible study just before joining the corporate worship service in the Sanctuary. We also meet from 5:45-8:00 on Wednesdays nights where we worship with our student Praise Band, go to Small Groups or large group bible study, play games, and even eat a meal together. We have several events that compliment these two hub gatherings. See below for our upcoming events.
