YOUTH 

Partnering with students & families to know Jesus, grow to be more like Jesus, and go to serve & tell the world about Jesus.
The teenage years are some of the most challenging and exciting times in life, and it is our mission at HFFBC to simply be a people and place where all students are invited to come and explore the deep questions of life and faith, be loved unconditionally, instilled with the truth of Jesus Christ, and compelled to live full lives for Him in word and deed. Quite simply, it is our desire and goal that all students encounter Jesus and become whole-life disciples of Him – fully engaging their head, heart, and hands, not for themselves, but for His glory. It is our commitment to partner with students and their families, building critical and firm foundations for life and faith, and pointing to the hope that is built ultimately “on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”

Junior High (grades 6-8)
 
About: The Jr. High Youth Group seeks to provide a fun environment for students to grow in their knowledge (both with their minds and their hearts) of God, his Word and his glorious call on our lives.  We strive to provide a place where Christ is exalted in the hope that students will trust him, join with him both in his death and his true and everlasting life.  We pray that, by the Spirit of God, the young people we interact with will be shaped more and more into the image of Christ daily and that they will bring God’s love in Christ to a world in need. When we meet we have a time of teaching God’s Word and breaking down into small groups to discuss and apply the Word of God to life.  Our night usually wraps up with a time of fellowship & games.

Sunday Morning (9:45 – 10:30am)

 Sunday mornings begin as one big Jr. High group. We meet in the Jr. High room at 9:45 to watch a brief video by Bible Project (click HERE for more info on these videos) before we split into small groups to discuss the video as well as dive deeper into what scripture has to say on the topic. Typically these small groups are gender specific and range from 5 to 7 students and 1 to 2 mentors. 

Sunday Evening (5:00 – 7:00 pm)

Sunday evenings are more fellowship-focused than Sunday mornings. We typically start with a large group game in the gym before we split up the Jr. and Sr. High for a lesson. Then we come back together for worship. At 6:30, the night is officially over and students are free to be picked up, though we keep the gym open for informal games until 7:00.
Senior High (grades 9-12)
About: The Sr. High Youth Group is a place for seekers, skeptics & believers alike to come to investigate the truth claims of Jesus Christ found in the Bible. We use a mixture of teaching styles including video presentations, small group breakout discussions, large group discussions, and monthly open Q&A times. Our night is intentionally non-threatening, comfortable, and meant to simply be a place where students can gather together in a safe environment where no question is dismissed and or deemed too large. Together we investigate Scripture’s answer to life’s biggest questions in large & small group settings. And we always end with a good game of foosball or pingpong
