Youth Fellowship

 

Middle School Fellowship meets weekly on Sunday afternoons from 4:00-6:00 PM.

Senior High Fellowship meets weekly on Sunday evenings from 6:00-9:00 PM.

The participants in these groups come from church families and the larger community, and all are welcome regardless of faith background.

The extensive programs of these fellowships range from a fourteen-day Allagash Wilderness Waterway canoe trip (a four decade tradition), retreats to camps and conference centers, occasional dramatic and musical productions, serious study and programs on issues of concern to young people, community service, and many less serious activities (like laser tag, scavenger hunts, and ice cream crawls!)

The First Baptist Church in Beverly has a long-standing commitment to youth. A significant portion of the church resources are used for youth activities and many staff hours are spent with young people. FBC’s gym is used by a large number of community groups, such as pick-up basketball games.

***IN ALL CASES, MIDDLE SCHOOL FELLOWSHIP IS OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY! Please invite friends and spread the word! Also – we always have financial assistance for any program available as needed. We never want any interested young person to miss a program due to cost. Please always just come and let Julie or an advisor know if we can help with cost!

We will meet at the church at 3:00 p.m. to head to Connors’ Farm in Danvers for an afternoon of fun, games, corn mazes, food, and more! Connors Farm has generously offered to donate the bracelets needed for admission to the Farm – so you only need to bring money with you if you would like food or to do anything extra (apple picking, etc). $10-$20 should be plenty, depending on how much you want to eat! Please bring your signed permission form, as well – 2 are included with this mailing so that you can invite a friend!

Middle School Fellowship will be November 15-17 at Oceanwood in Ocean Park in Maine. Horseback riding will be involved!

 

Friends are ALWAYS welcome to any program, at any time! The more, the merrier!

We want all youth who are interested to be able to come and enjoy Fellowship – so please let us know how we can help make that happen!***
