What is First Students?

First Students is a Student Ministry (7th–12th grade) where students own their faith, live out their faith and lead others. Leading students to develop a faith of their own in Jesus Christ is the goal of our ministry. Our hope is to partner with parents in helping students go deeper with each other, their leaders and, most importantly, God. We have weekly small group meetings on Sunday's from 9:30-10:30 a.m. These groups are led by trained adult leaders and our weekly groups foster community, accountability and friendships. Our mid-week student service is called Elevate from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Students will Elevate the name of Jesus through worship and teaching, Encourage fellow believers in their spiritual walk with the Lord, and Engage the community through outreach and service.

We have the opportunity of serving the local community of Arlington, TX in conjunction with Mission Arlington March 15-19 2020. We will be serving in a variety of capacities such as stocking food pantries, managing the clothing room, picking up donations, passing out Bible study fliers, and even teaching a Bible study at the apartments. Since this is a mission trip we will be staying at the Mission Arlington housing, which is usually an unfurnished apartment. You will need to bring an inflatable mattress, bedding for the mattress, toiletries and clothing that can get dirty. On Thursday we will get to explore Six Flags over Texas, which is the only cost of the trip ($50). Each morning we will meet at the Mission for a daily devotion and an additional group time in the evening before bedtime. This is a great opportunity to serve and share the gospel of Jesus with people as well as have fun at Six Flags. Click the picture to register for the Mission Trip.
Super Summer exists to inspire and equip students as Kingdom leaders focusing on 6 core values; spiritual growth, Spiritual Disciplines, Leadership, Evangelism, Discipleship, and Service/Ministry. Beginning in 1986 as a training opportunity for youth ministers to bring Christian young people who were interested in advancing their personal spiritual growth. Super Summer has over 3000 participants and promises to continue growth as the need for student leaders intensifies. Super Summer Oklahoma is an independent camp operated by a board of directors made up of youth ministers, pastors, and laymen. Super Summer takes place at Oklahoma Baptist University the first three full weeks of June each year. God continues to prompt Super Summer Oklahoma to provide a cutting edge vision and resource to churches and youth pastors that will effectively explode this generation of Christian teens into a world that desperately needs hope and salvation.
Theme Verse: Romans 11:33-36 “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor? Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him? For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.” This summer we will explore the character and nature of God by looking into His GLORY. We will explore who God is and how we should respond to Him as a result. Our daily teaching points will center on God as: Deep God is unsearchable. We could never explore the extent of the richness of His character. Sufficient God needs nothing from man. Because He is complete, we can rely on Him.. Deserving God is worthy of all we have to give in living and in serving. Eternal God is from forever past to forever future. We live faithfully because of our hope in the “was and is and is to come.”
