The youth ministry of First Wesleyan Church, KStudents, exists to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to students (6th grade through 12th grade), inviting them into a saving relationship with Him, and then discipling them, walking with them as they grow deeper in faith and understanding.
A mature Christian lifestyle is a multi-faceted thing, and through our weekly youth group meetings, we try to assist students in learning those many pieces. Music and prayer are integral parts of our youth meetings, providing all involved with an opportunity to approach God with prayer and praise. Regular fellowship and strong relationships with other Christians are important to anyone, let alone a junior or senior high student trying to remain strong and express faith to his/her peers. Everyone tends to arrive early and stay late on youth nights, taking the time to get to know a few who share their faith and their walk with Christ.
There is bible teaching weekly targeting issues that teens deal with regularly at school and at home, as well as teaching them disciplines and concepts that will help them advance their understanding of God on their own. Along with our weekly bible teaching, we like to include worship, games, icebreakers, and videos to allow the teens to feel more comfortable in their surroundings. In addition to the week bible teaching, we also offer two youth camps during the summer: Camp Wesley and NC West District camp. When we are able to, KStudents participates in weekend retreats as well as district lock-ins.
