Welcome to First Mt. Juliet Students!
SUNDAY SMALL GROUPS
Student Ministry Small Groups meet every Sunday morning at 9:30 A.M. in the Student Center. Small Groups are divided by grade and gender. Every Sunday, we start off in the Student Center before breaking off into our Small Groups. Using the provided curriculum and passing on important communication, Small Groups are our primary engine for community and discipleship. If you or your student need help getting involved in a Small Group, please contact us at email@example.com.
Midweek is one of our favorite times each week! Our Student Ministry meets weekly on Wednesday nights for “Midweek,” our Student Ministry large group worship service. Midweek is characterized by a welcoming environment, time of worship, biblical teaching, and a time of response. Midweek is the perfect opportunity for students to get connected, experience God through worship and teaching, and invite lost or unchurched friends to church. Hangout starts at 5:30 P.M., worship is at 6:30 P.M., and Midweek Mix is after that! Everyone is welcome!
The First Baptist Church Mt. Juliet Student Ministry is for students entering 6th grade through high school graduation. Our Church Mission is to Love God, Love People, Go. In the Student Ministry, we believe our mission is to help students become adults who will - for a lifetime - live out those three mission goals. We believe this can happen when students (1) recognize that God’s Word is our authority, (2) live life on mission for Jesus, and (3) understand the importance of the local church. We want to lead students to have complete ownership of their faith - understanding the truth, living life with purpose, and being grounded in a faith community.
Every week, we give students three tangible challenges: Show Up, Invite, and Pray Big.
SHOW UP: We believe it is critical for students to be present, connected, and engaged in the Student Ministry.
INVITE: We challenge students to see their peers as a mission field and use their influence to invite their lost and unchurched friends, in hopes that they might hear the gospel and come to salvation!
PRAY BIG: Nothing of eternal significance happens apart from prayer, so students are challenged to participate in God’s great work and see prayer answered firsthand.
My Story His Glory
Each and every one of us has a story - the story of our life. These stories aren't just ours though. God is the author of our lives. He does not allow any parts or moments of our lives to go to waste. He is working all things together. Sometimes, His work is evident while other times we can't see or understand what He is doing or how He will use what we're walking through.
Whether seen or unseen, small or significant - God is in control, active, and forming every part of our story. Each story may be common or unique, it's filled with highs and lows, and there are moments of challenges and moments of joy. Through it all, God is with us and wants to use our story for His glory.
We believe Student Leadership University can inspire, equip, and propel students into strong ownership of their faith, the pursuit of a life of servant leadership, and an all-in commitment to be who God has created them to be for His kingdom purposes. Each year, this opportunity is available to students in 8th-12th grades. We are excited for the opportunity to take two groups to Student Leadership University (SLU) in 2024: SLU 101 in Orlando, FL from January 12-15 and SLU 201 in Washington, D.C. from July 15-19th!
