“DON’T LET ANYONE LOOK DOWN ON YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE YOUNG, BUT SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE BELIEVERS IN SPEECH, IN CONDUCT, IN LOVE, IN FAITH AND IN PURITY.” – 1 Timothy 4:12
First Baptist Preteen Ministry exists to bridge the gap in these transitional years between childhood and adolescence. Our goal is to help forth and fifth graders navigate their faith as they grow in physical and spiritual maturity.
Age-graded classes are offered at 8:30, 9:45, and 11:00 AM every Sunday morning. Join other preteens for Connect groups each week and study God’s word using the Gospel Project.
Phase 45 meets on Wednesday nights in the Preteen Rally Room from 6:15-7:45pm. Doors open at 5:45 to play games and hang out with friends.
Each week, preteens will come together to worship, study Scripture, play games, and learn how to use their talents for God’s kingdom. Phase 45 follows the Orange 252 curriculum and every message is tailored for their age group.
Phase 45 offers several creative tracks for preteens to choose from to learn new skills and develop existing talents. Preteens have the option to change tracks each semester.
