Student ministry

The FBCE Student Ministry is designed to be an environment for your 7th-12th graders to grow in their relationship with God and with others through weekly gatherings, hanging out with friends, and events throughout the year.  We believe parents are the primary spiritual examples for students, and our aim is to help parents do that by providing them with weekly updates on what we're teaching and doing via social media and email.


Sunday Discipleship @ 11:15 AM in the FBCE Loft: This is where our 7th-12th come to gather in small group settings and dive into Scripture together, with conversation being facilitated by our adult leaders. 


This is our Sunday night gathering where students can come hang, play games, eat a bunch of junk food, and most importantly engage with the Bible through group teaching. Come join us from 6:30 PM to 8 PM in the FBCE Sanctuary!
