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.
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:
Student needs time to slow down and connect with God. Wednesday Night
Worship is a time where you can connect with your Creator and worship.
The entire service is geared to help you hear God. The live band, video,
drama, prayer times, and the speaker are all there to help you think
about how God is at work in your life. Join other teenagers who are
seeking to know more about God. Come and check it out!
