Our philosophy of youth ministry is built around 3 things:
LIFE CHANGE, LIFE CHOICES AND LIFE MEMORIES!
2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old is gone, the new has come!” We want all students to have a life changing encounter with Jesus Christ through all that we do here.
2 Timothy 2:22 –“ Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” The middle and high school years are filled with critical life choices. We want to help students make Biblically based choices during this important time in their lives, for the rest of their lives.
Philippians 1:3 – “ I thank my God every time I remember you.” We want a students time in our ministry to provide them with wonderful and positive life memories.
These 3 guiding principles inform and impact all that we do and teach in the Youth Ministry at First Baptist Cornelia.
ONGOING MEETING TIMES
Sunday mornings 9:45 – Bible Study on the 3rd floor of the Family Ministry Center (THE WELL) followed by worship at 10:55 am.
Wednesday evenings 6:00 – 7:30 pm – We have a time of worship and teaching in THE WELL (3rd Floor Family Ministry Center). Part of this time includes a time to break into smaller groups, usually from 7:00 – 7:30 pm to discuss what has been taught and to share prayer needs with each other. Starting in April we will use this time for Leadership Training, to prepare students for life in general, and also to prepare our teens to be counselors and youth volunteers for Camp Agape held in July.
We have a monthly BIG EVENT to help students grow in their faith as well. Visitors are welcomed at all that we do!
