Wednesday nights, during the school year:

 Encounter is a place for teenagers to connect with God and with each other. We strive to create an environment for authentic worship, biblical teaching, engaging small group discussions, real friendships and exciting growth. We aim for students to Encounter Christ. Encounter Community. Encounter Culture. We now have Junior High Encounter in the Fellowship Hall and High School Encounter in the Well. Come join the movement of teenagers seeking to make their lives count for the glory of Christ!



REVERB is a chance for teenagers to gather for Bible study on Sunday mornings in the Well. We desire to grow deep in discipleship while helping each other know the Word and walk more faithfully with God. Two Bible study options are available, 9:35 and 10:55. FBC Student Ministry is led by Student Pastor Mark Miller and Girls Director Erin Miller, and small group leaders who dive into Bible study discussion with age & gender based groups. 

Come grow with us!
