Check out this packet for ideas to get you started!
Hello students and parents!
It is an honor and a privilege to be able to work in Youth Ministry at First Baptist Church of Arlington. From our families, Bible study teachers, volunteers, and students- this church is absolutely unparalleled. We are so grateful to be part of it!
The heart of our youth ministry is the weekly Sunday morning Bible study, Wednesday night worship gathering, and regular small group discipleship. These are the ongoing parts of our regular lives that translate into holy spiritual habits. While these things are important and necessary for students, we believe that special events play an important role as well. Whether it’s Youth Camp, retreats, Wake Up Weekend, mission trips, whatever it is- we believe that setting aside a specific amount of time to God, away from distractions and routines, is powerfully transformative. A majority of our students make their first profession of faith at special events. Many find the strength to repent from their sin. Some find clarity on their life’s calling. And almost all stretch beyond their comfort zones to grow more like Jesus.
We know that the costs of these special events add up quick, especially with siblings in the youth group! Scholarships are always available by application for our events to assist families in need. With this packet, though, we want to offer students the opportunity to take personal ownership of their expenses. Raising support does require time and effort, but it makes the end result that much more meaningful. This packet is filled with lots of ideas for both individual and group fundraising. With a multiyear capital campaign, we want to reach beyond the membership of FBCA in useful and creative ways. In a lot of these suggestions, there are opportunities to serve others well. Fundraise with love and integrity!
