The Student Ministry of Crabapple First Baptist Church is meant to be a tool and a complement to the primary discipleship role of parents, helping teens in their transition years from childhood to adulthood to understand the faith and own it for themselves, see very clearly what it looks like to faithfully follow Jesus as teens, and prepare them for long-term faithfulness and ministry responsibility as Christ following church members.
"Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving." - Colossians 2:6-7
The Student Ministry of Crabapple First Baptist Church exists to see students receive Jesus Christ as Lord, and walk in Him, being rooted in the faith.
Sunday Mornings - Sunday School - 9:15-10:15am
Sunday School is our Sunday morning small groups Bible study. The large group is divided up into smaller classes along gender and age lines. We have a team of teachers for these classes, who dedicate their time toward personal study and prayer with the goal of faithfully teaching God’s Word to their classes on a weekly basis, firming up each student’s foundational understanding of the Christian faith. We use a student version of the Gospel Project, which are the same lessons that the adults and children use.
Wednesday Nights - Rooted - 6:15-7:30pm
Rooted is our Wednesday Night worship service. During Rooted, we pray together, the student worship team leads us in praise songs, there is a teaching time, and then we break into small groups. Our usual approach on Wednesday Nights is an expositional Bible study. The Bible study is sermon style, but it is more laid back than strictly lecture, offering opportunities as appropriate for feedback, questions, and answers. In this teaching format, the goal is to help the students understand Scripture, learn how they can study it on their own, help in application, and give them a grand vision for the greatness of God and the gospel of Christ.
Sunday Evenings - 5-6:30pm
On Sunday nights we meet at 5pm in the Rooted room, and we usually go to 6:30pm. Sunday nights will look different each week. We might do ministry in the community, we might have a home fellowship, or we might have a fun outreach event.
