Sundays: 9 & 11am LATEST MESSAGE


Hello from the FGS High school team!

Parents, we believe the high school years are crucial in the life of every child, and we want to do our best to partner with you through this season. One way we do that is by keeping you in the loop about all that is happening in our high school ministry. In this newsletter, you will find an update on what is currently happening on Sunday nights, and some things to know in the coming weeks.


A group of high school juniors and seniors from FG Students recently took a trip to La Vega, DR to serve with TEARS ministries! For the 8 days they were there, they helped serve in the TEARS compound through work projects, shared the love of Christ with kids, teens, and adults in the community of La Vega, headed up a VBS with a local church, and grew closer as a team through this trip. We're thankful for everyone who came around this team with prayer and financial support to make the trip possible! If you talk to any of the students or leaders who went on the trip, ask them how it impacted them spiritually! We're sure they'd love to share with you about how God worked in their lives through this DR trip


This month, we will be in a series about parables and how Jesus uses them to make us wrestle with truths from the stories that affects our own lives.


High School Programming will happen on July 21 from 6-8pm, with a Senior Session immediately following. 

High School Outreach X Day: To foster hearts and minds focused on serving others both globally and locally, students will serve and learn from some of our local and global partners! On July 22, from 9am-5:30pm students will do a hands-on, light construction project with one of our local partners to serve a local family and in the afternoon, they will learn from one of our global partners about refugee care and how to serve those around us. Lunch and dinner will be provided for students. It will cost $15 per student for this service day to cover costs for lunch and dinner.

Small Groups - True discipleship happens three feet away from each other. Almost halfway through the school year, we have seen small groups continue to be a great place for our high school students to be discipled. Small Groups registration is open online now, so make sure to sign up! Small groups will start on September 15th. If you have any questions please contact please contact Rachel Bailer.


The Culture Translator

This is a weekly email from a group who focuses on helping parents navigate the changing culture and news that keeps coming at us at a rapid pace. Each Friday they send an email that takes 5 minutes to read but keys you in on three major culture/news happenings. A lot of us on staff have subscribed and have found it very insightful.  

We hope this helps you stay in the cultural loop and gives you strategic ways to keep speaking into the life of your children! Thanks for being the awesome parents that you are!

If you ever have any questions about our ministry or about navigating life with a high schooler or small groups, feel free to reach out to the student team at
