OASIS illustrates our desire to be a life giving place of renewal, rest, and growth in the desert that can be the Middle and High School culture. Adult leaders who love students and a great batch of student leaders make this truly a team ministry.
At First Baptist, our student ministry exists to help students develop a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this through building faith, relationships, biblical knowledge, and the opportunity to serve locally and globally.
Our student events are designed to help students grow in their faith, be a chance for those who do not yet know Jesus be introduced to him through the messages and fellowship of these events, and to strengthen the group as individuals are strengthened.
Community & Missions
Student-led worship services for the whole church, local and regional mission projects and our annual High School Mission Trip. Our mission trips rotate between Eastern and Western U.S. areas and international destinations. We currently are planning to renew our partnership in Guyana, South America in July of 2019.
DiscipleNow (a great “in town retreat”) which is truly life changing. Bonfires, community events, Dinner nights, lock-in, and crud fight are just some of them. We also have Ski retreats (for Middle and High school students). The ultimate highlight for the year for most students is CASWELL (a most excellent week long retreat each summer).
During the summer we have special summer activities usually including: Trail Bike rides, Lake days, laser tag, pool parties and more.
OASIS Meeting 6:30PM
Our OASIS meeting is a great time to be with friends. We incorporate sessions from series such as NOT A FAN, CRAZY LOVE, THE FRONTIER BOYS, and other special studies with games and challenge/encouragement for a night of fun, meaningful study and great Christian fellowship.
Small Group Bible Study 9:30AM
We have excellent Small Group Bible studies using outstanding, exciting materials and caring, committed and prepared teachers. The discussion times with other students in these groups are helpful in making our group a true Oasis in hard times.
