OUR MISSION

It is the mission and desire of REACH Student Ministries to work alongside parents in order to REACH and EQUIP students with the gospel of Jesus Christ; teaching them how to better love and know God, His Word, and those created in His image.

HEY PARENTS.

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?

REACH 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 during the school year 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 our youth pastor, Eric Shelner

EVENT PARTICIPATION FORM

We'll need one of these on file each time your son or daughter attends an event with us. 

Thanks for helping us ensure your student is safe and well cared for! Just print it, fill it out, and return it to us.
