Preteen MinistryPreteens are a unique group of individuals who need to be challenged, praised, guided and sometimes disciplined. They are the focus of television executives and ad agencies. At First Baptist Church we believe that preteens are valuable and deserve our attention. We view this time of 5th and 6th grades as an opportunity for the preteen to begin to apply learned behavior and develop a spiritual walk which moves them from children to adolescents. This ministry is called "The Bridge" signifying the change that these children are experiencing in life. As preteens prepare to enter the student ministry of First Baptist we continue to use our construction metaphor. Our goal at First Baptist is to develop fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. The Preteen ministry will…
1) Continue to provide opportunities for preteens to internalize God’s Word. We will begin to move from a memorization mindset to an application lifestyle by providing opportunities of service and ministry.
2) Continue to help preteens develop an active prayer life based on their growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Moving their focus beyond themselves and their family to our church and the world they live in.
3) Continue to take every opportunity to share Jesus Christ with the preteens who have not yet chosen Jesus as Savior and Lord. While at the same time teaching those who have committed their lives to begin sharing there faith with others.
4) Continue to stress to the preteen how important they are to the body of believers of First Baptist Church and to the body of Christ throughout the world.
The B.R.I.D.G.E. acrostic stands for Becoming Real In Discipleship, Growth, and Evangelism. It symbolizes the transition that preteen are experiencing in their lives. Come be a part of this exciting ministry to preteens at First Baptist Church.
