Small Groups

Small group is a fun and safe place to connect with friends, new and old, and have honest conversation about God and life. Groups are led by an adult leader that walks students through conversations related to the current message series. Contact your campus youth director to join a middle school or high school small group. Get connected, go deeper, join a small group!


We believe that God has called us each through the great commission to serve the world near and far. First Students provides weekly mission opportunities, locally and globally, to serve those around us. We encourage all of our students to consider getting involved in a mission project as we learn what it means to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Contact your campus youth director to hear about all that we are currently doing in our communities as well as upcoming mission opportunities.
