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.
We are currently walking through the Bible study, "Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart" by J.D. Greear in Sunday School/small groups.
Sunday School starts at 9:45 AM in the Youth House Garage on Third Street

Here are some devotions to go along with our lesson from Sunday morning.
There are several opportunities for students to grow on Sunday afternoon. At 4:30, Bible Drill is taught. An apologetics class is taught at 5:30. Our apologetics class is currently going through the study, "Cold Case Christianity" by J. Warner Wallace. There are also various small groups that meet at the 5:30 hour as well.
Everyone has experienced them. Everyone knows how it feels to be on the receiving end of their special brand of attention. Of course, we’re talking about mean people. No one is safe from their meanness, especially not teenagers. For so many reasons, mean people are a part of our teenagers’ lives. And the biggest thing about mean people is that very rarely does one do anything to deserve their wrath. How should teenagers act in the face of the mean people who inhabit their worlds? Good thing Jesus had a lot to say about this.
Jesus and Mean People will help your students understand that when people are mean to us for no reason, we should see it as a blessing, not a bad situation; that they’re called to treat mean people with grace, and in so doing, identify themselves with God; that they are to have courage when facing mean people because the Holy Spirit is with them, always; and that Jesus modeled how we’re to treat the meanest the mean of people in our lives.

Each week’s menu and a place to sign up is also available on our church website, app, or can be called in to the church office (478-934-6356). We will walk across to the garage together for worship and small groups at 6:30 pm. Students will continue to be picked up in front of the youth house after church as usual.
