Our Youth Program is for 7th-12th grades and meets on Sunday nights at 5:30 pm (Awana Trek Grades 7-8, Awana Journey Grades 9-12) and Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm. Our goal is to evangelize and disciple young people in the Word of God so that they will grow to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, strength, and mind. With all the pressures they face each day, we want them to be equipped to make choices and decisions based on the truth found in God's Word. Throughout the year, they will be encouraged to think and react biblically to the many challenges they will face. The Bible is our main textbook, along with other youth age appropriate Biblical studies from a select variety of resources. We also encourage our young people to build lasting, meaningful relationships within the youth group, church, and community through a variety of activities.These activities include annual camp and missions trips, work days within the community and church, fundraisers, Christian concerts, food and fun nights, Carrowinds, bowling, lock-ins, Winter Youth Retreats, and a host of other activities planned throughout the year. Please come be a part of this exciting ministry at Friendship Baptist Church.
