Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Seguin Student Ministry
Made up of students 6th grade through High School senior, our student ministry offers a variety of worship and fellowship opportunities.
It's our mission to create, prepare and equip the next generation of disciples to shine and share the light and love of Jesus Christ within their families, to their peers and to the world.
Our church seeks to build core foundations into the lives of youth. The following are areas we seek to disciple every youth in prior to graduation.

Sunday Small Groups: 9:00 AM - 10:10 AM
Each Sunday opens a new door of opportunity for students to teach each other. With the guidance of our teachers, we dive deep into Scripture stories to reveal what the Bible says about 1) who Jesus is, 2) who I am in Jesus and 3) how its all relevant to my life today.
T.I.D.E. (Teens Inviting Discipleship Encounters) Sunday Evenings 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
TIDE is a time of fellowship. Members of the congregation host students one Sunday a month for various activities, such as swimming, bonfires & s'mores, cook outs and canoeing. Students invite friends from school or their neighborhoods to share Jesus and jollification!
Wednesday Evening: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Wednesday night is our night to build relationships with each other that in turn help us strengthen our relationship with the Lord. We laugh, we share, we eat and we play, but we also worship, we discuss, we learn and we pray.
Throughout the summer, our students meet for various events and trips. Listed below are just a few things we've participated in during previous years. Please note that each year is different due to cost and time constraints.
