At First Baptist Bonham we don’t believe that students are the church of the future, but that they are the church of today. We exist to effect spiritual transformation in the students of Bonham and beyond by going to the world, growing together as the church, and glorifying God through worship and obedience. We do our best to provide a Christ-cenetered community where students are encouraged to explore biblical truths through relevant lessons, worship, and acts of service.
We have three main gathering times.
1. Sunday mornings starting at 9:30am. Students gather around coffee or hot chocolate to discuss their weeks. From there we split up into groups based on gender where we study the bible and look for ways to apply these truths to our everyday lives.
2. Sunday nights at 5:00pm. We meet in Ben’s (our fearless leader) office. Sunday night is designed for students to learn Christian leadership principles and how to apply those principles at their school, workplace, and home.
3. Wednesday nights starting at 5:30pm. Wednesday nights are a great night to come if you are just checking things out. We eat a small dinner at 5:30pm followed by some free time in our gym where students can play basketball, foursquare, or number of other games. Starting around 6:00pm we have a large group game in the gym followed by worship upstairs in the youth room. We wrap things up around 7:00pm.
Throughout the year we are involved in many other events whether it’s a fun outing such as bowling, camps, mission trips, and ministry projects. We would love for you to come hang out with us and meet our awesome youth leaders.
