Ministry Overview

Connect Circle 2Connect is the Middle School Ministry of First Baptist Trussville. Our goal is simple: Connect with God. Connect with others. The biggest influence in a Middle School students life is their friends. We believe if students pursue a deeper relationship with God, they will also pursue Godly friendships. If students are engaged in Godly friendships, they will also pursue a deeper relationship with God. 

To accomplish this goal, we have a three-step ministry process in which we CONNECT a student to a relationship with Jesus, build COMMUNITY through weekly small group meetings, and provide regular opportunities for them to CONTACT their world with the love of Jesus Christ.

Wednesday Nights

Our Wednesday night gathering is called Connect. The purpose of the Connect worship service is to provide a high-energy environment that encourages students to worship God with all they have. Through high-energy worship, and practical teaching, students will BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, they will BEGIN to pursue holiness, and they will BECOME more like Christ.

We encourage all the Middle Schoolers to move on to the second step in our process: Community through Sunday Morning Small Groups and Community Groups during the week. 

 

Join us Wednesdays 5:00-7:00 P.M.

Doors open at 5. Worship begins at 6. Done at 7.

Pizza, Drinks, and Candy are available for $1.

Sunday Morning & Off Campus Groups

Community is the second step in our ministry process. There are two levels to building community:

Sunday Morning Small Groups

Sunday's 9:15-10:30 A.M.

The Bible is our sole source of authority. Each Sunday morning Middle School students will hear the Word through a challenging and exciting large group lesson. From there, students will split off into gender and grade specific small groups to discuss how the passage applies to their lives. Each group focuses on the Bible and encourages spiritual disciplines like personal Bible study, prayer, accountability, and Scripture memory. 

Community Groups

Meeting times vary. 

A Community Group is a group of 5-7 Middle School students paired with 2 High School leaders. Each group meets weekly at an off-campus location to discuss the Growing Discipleship reading for the week. It is here that deep-rooted relationships are established as students hold one another accountable, and grow in their faith together.

Through Sunday Morning Small Groups and Community Groups, students will RECEIVE the Word, RETAIN the Word, and will be encouraged to advance to the third step in our ministry process in which they will REPRODUCE the Word. In the third step, students will CONTACT their world with the love of Jesus Christ

This is the third step in our ministry process. As Christians we are called to influence the world around us. We believe that influence is a CONTACT sport. Influence happens up close. It is here that students are challenged to discover and develop their spiritual gifts, and use them for the Kingdom of God. We have 4 primary Contact Teams:

  1. Music
  2. Technology
  3. Drama
  4. Welcome

These teams meet the last Sunday of every month from 12-2. Students will receive hands-on training for their chosen field as they are challenged to use their gifts to draw others to Christ. For more information, click the "Get Involved" button under the video.
