We want to unleash First Fort Mill Students as a generation of Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered, world changers.
As we grow in our relationship with Christ, we have fun getting to know each other in small groups, in Bible studies, at camps, retreats, and on mission trips.
Youth Group is a Sunday Night gathering for our Student Ministry at First Baptist Fort Mill. 6th through 12th grade students meet in the Worship Center each Sunday night at 5:00 to 6:30pm. Students will play games, fellowship, worship, hear form God’s word, and discuss real life applications of Scripture in small groups. Youth Group is designed to help students dig deeper into what God’s Word says, and to address the “heart” issues students are dealing with. We use the Bible to point students to Jesus, and to show them that the gospel affects their theology, relationships, and world view. Youth Group is a great time for students to be with friends while learning more about God’s plan for their lives.
High School Discipleship Groups are designed to give students an opportunity to get closer to each other and talk about what God is doing in their lives. We believe that students grow deeper in small groups. Our D-Groups are gender-based helping students to feel comfortable sharing. Our D-groups are led by awesome men and women who give freely and invest in the lives of the teenagers. High School D-Groups meet on Wednesday evenings to dig into God’s Word, pray and encourage one another.
Middle School Discipleship Groups are designed to give students an opportunity to get closer to each other and talk about what God is doing in their lives. We believe that students grow deeper in small groups. Our D-groups are led by awesome men and women who give freely and invest in the lives of the teenagers. Middle School D-Groups will resume in August 2021.
We want our students to learn what it means to be a servant from an early age. Every year our students can serve at Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the children in the Summer. In addition to this, our students serve at a local event every summer called Engage Fort Mill. During Engage Fort Mill, our students serve our schools by helping teachers and administration get ready for the school year. Students need to learn what it means to serve before they become adults. We don’t want our students to fall into the trap of thinking they are the church of tomorrow because we want them to realize they are a part of the church today and can serve now. We also go on mission trips within the United States and around the world.
