welcome to student ministries!

Welcome to the student ministry page of First Baptist Church, Cochran! As you scroll down, you will find information pertaining to our Sunday School small groups (along with weekly parent letters and devotions for the material discussed each week); Sunday afternoon small groups, discipleship class, and Bible drill; as well as Wednesday night small groups (also with with weekly parent letters and devotions pertaining to material discussed each week). 


Youth Sunday School is highlighted by an all-star cast of Sunday School teachers.  These teachers truly care about and invest in the lives of the students they teach and that investment extends beyond just the hours of Sunday morning Sunday School.  All classes have their own personality and are involved in things that represent that personality.  The hope for Sunday School is that students have a safe place to wrestle with questions.  That they learn what the Bible teaches and get to journey together on what it looks like to follow Jesus.  That they share in community with one another even when that means that they're not getting along.  And mainly, that as they are loved that they in turn begin to walk on the journey of what Jesus means when he says we are to Love God and Love People. This year, we are discovering the thread of the Gospel through the big-picture story of the Bible. 

Sunday School starts at 9:45 AM in the Youth House on Third Street

Wednesday NIght Bible Study

Today’s Christian teenagers find themselves living in a culture that is antagonistic to much of what they believe. Against this backdrop, how do they know how to engage with culture in a way that keeps their influence intact, but keeps them from being negatively impacted by the world? The good news is that Jesus had lots to say about this. Jesus And Forgiveness, part of The Jesus Studies, helps students understand what real forgiveness looks like, why their forgiveness is tied to how they forgive others, and how forgiveness dramatically impacts the lives of the forgiver and the forgiven. Parents, click here for an overview letter about our study on forgiveness. Also, here is a parent letter about our week four discussion. Here are some student devotionals to go along with this weeks lesson.
