First Norfolk Students is a group of teenagers (Grades 6-12) and adults who are passionate about becoming fully devoted followers of Christ. It is our desire to create a relevant environment where students can be Accepted for who they are, Lead to a deeper relationship with Christ, and Sent out to their schools and neighborhoods to live out their faith. Teenagers and their families need a place to connect with each other and to God if they are going to live in the fullness of Jesus Christ. First Baptist Norfolk strives to be that place. Together we build relationships that last and reach Hampton Roads with the love of Christ. Below is a snapshot of a few ways to connect with our ministry team and a few worship and LIFEgroup opportunities that you can check out.

Sunday Mornings  9:30 & 11 AM

We believe that the Bible has something to say to us today. Each week 6th-12th grade students gather together to discover God's plan for their life. As students come in they break into LIFEgroups by their grade. Each age group is led by adult Student Ministry leaders who are passionate about God and His power to guide us in life. You never know what will happen in LIFEgroup so don't miss it! Studies are presented in a relaxed atmosphere and coupled with Church-wide Worship services. Join us this Sunday: 

Wednesday Night Worship
