Welcome to the Youth Ministry

Welcome to the Youth Ministry at First Baptist Arlington! We hope that through your time here, you'll belong, grow, and serve. We aim to connect students and leaders in significant relationships to form intentional community. Through worship, prayer, Bible Study, and discipleship, we seek to grow in our walk with Christ and honor God by following the Jesus Way. We live out the mission and story of God by equipping and sending students to live out their faith in our church, in Arlington, and beyond!


It Takes a Village

A podcast for parents of teenagers.

We thank God for this summer! What a season- full of worship, studying scripture, building friendships, serving others, and having fun together. Praise Jesus!
Tomorrow is Fresh Start Sunday! Join us in the Student Center at 9:45am to meet your new department leaders, enjoy a pancake breakfast, and connect with others 🥞

Never tried Sunday Bible Study? Every group is new! You won’t be the only one! 

Haven’t been around much this summer? This is the perfect time to join back in! 

Planning to be there already? It’s a great week to bring a friend or check in with the friends you haven’t seen lately. 

Church is better when YOU are there!
