Welcome to First Mt. Juliet Students!
SUNDAY SMALL GROUPS
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.
Raise the Bar
This year, we want to "raise the bar" for everyone involved in the student ministry, starting with all leadership and funneling down to all students. Students are not an afterthought or the Church of the future. They are a significant part of the Church today; therefore, they will be encouraged and challenged to live out our core values for the glory of God.
First, they will be encouraged to be in God's Word, know His Word, and apply His Word to their life. Simply put, they will be encouraged to live under the authority of God's Word. Second, they will be challenged to live life on mission for Jesus in both word and action everywhere they go. Third, they will be encouraged to be committed to their church, where they can serve God by exercising all the unique ways He has gifted them. When students can grasp the idea of living under the authority of God's Word, learn what it looks like and means to live life on mission for Jesus, and love the local church, they develop complete ownership of their faith.
