Student Ministries (6-12)

Our number one Mission is to help middle and high school students grow a deeper, richer relationship with God through our many Ministries. We are an active group, passionate about reaching others with the Message of Christ’s love and peace.

Weekly Schedule (During School Year):

  • Sunday Mornings at 9:30 – Confirmation/6th grade – Room 309 | 7th & 8th Middle School – Room 303 | 9th – 12th High School – Room 305
  • Wednesday: Amp (6th – 12th) – See below for details
  • Thursday: Bible Study at Dobyns-Bennett during the 12:45 block of Tribe Time

First Broad Street UMC’s Wednesday night Student Ministries program is called Amp. An “amp” takes a small sound, like a voice, and strengthens it so that everyone near can hear it clearly. On Wednesday nights, our 6th-12th graders will gather together to Love God (through worship and teaching), Grow Together (through games, fellowship, and Christ-centered conversation) and Reach Out (by providing a non-threatening place for students to get connected with FBSUMC).

WHAT WE'RE TEACHING:

Limitless

SESSION:  Week 3

BOTTOM LINE:

Don't let fear hold you back when God calls you forward.

SUMMARY:

Social media is great, but it has a way of making everyone else’s life look perfect. No one ever has a bad hair day, a boring Friday night, or a bad relationship on Instagram, right? No matter how great you have it, there’s something about social media that causes us to question ourselves. We see how great others seem to be, and it leaves us wondering what weakness or flaw is limiting us from being just as great. It makes us insecure, and if we’re not careful, that insecurity can end up holding us back more than we realize. Moses had the same experience. When God tasked him with a huge responsibility, Moses didn’t think he had what it took to get the job done. But as we watch how the story unfolds, we’ll discover the way God goes with us and uses us despite our perceived limitations.

THINK ABOUT THIS

Leading your kids to serve

I grew up hating church. I didn’t have any theological problems with church, I was just bored. Sitting still for more than ten minutes was torture, and sometimes our services went on for two hours! The worst part is that my dad was the pastor, so we were there every time the door was open. And the door was open a lot: Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night.

Sometimes we had “revivals” (which I assumed was a Greek word for “torture young children”) It meant going to a church service every night of the week. My number one goal was to grow up and not go to church. My number two goal was to be an astronaut, but I figured that would get me out of church as well.
