We believe that God is working powerfully in and through the lives of our middle and high school students here at FBC. We want your son or daughter to feel right at home here. Here are answers to some questions we're asked frequently: 

What age group is considered Student Ministries?

FBC Youth is uniquely designed for 7th - 12th graders. We promote everyone during the second week of August, but we always welcome incoming 7th graders to join us on all our summer trips!

When and where do you meet?

We meet every Sunday evening from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Loft at FBC. It's on the west side of the second floor - you can't miss it! 

What happens during Youth Group on a typical Sunday evening?

Well, we typically begin the night by having a live band lead us in engaging worship. Afterwards, we listen to a relevant message from God's Word. We close the night in adult led, age-specific discussion groups where your son or daughter can form strong, close relationships with both leaders and peers. It's always a good time. 

How can I find out more information?

We'd love to tell you more! You can call the church office at 574.295.4475 and ask for Emily Hunt



This year's Winter Jam lineup really IS spectacular. Artists including (but not limited to) Skillet, Kari Jobe, Building 429, John Crist, KB, Newsong, Jordan Feliz, and Nick Hall will be performing in Grand Rapids, MI on Sunday, January 7th. 

We're excited to be taking our students for an awesome evening of worship and an incredible show. Parents, we plan to leave immediately after church at 12:30 on the 7th. Please send your student with $15 for their ticket and money for 1 meal.

We're traveling up to Lake Ann Camp in Northern Michigan for a weekend of everything we love about winter. Think tubing, hot chocolate, snowy games, and more. Add the most important part - dynamic worship and powerful messages to the mix, and it's going to be an incredible time! 

More details to come! For now, plan to spend an awesome weekend with us in February!
