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.


United Christmas Night: In December, we joined with FG Kids and FG Family to create a fun night to celebrate Christmas with all of our students and their families! We had around 600 people there playing games, worshipping through music and teaching, and spending time together to celebrate Jesus' birth. Even Santa (Dallas) showed up to read a Christmas story!! Thanks to everyone who came out to join us on this special night!


The Disrupter: We sometimes lose sight of the fact that Jesus was a man on earth, was relatable to us, and was also one who disrupted the normal in people's lives. We like our comfort and tranquility, but to give Jesus our full heart, we have to allow Him to come in and disrupt that comfort. We will look at different ways Jesus disrupts our lives and why that's for our best interest this next month!


Stepping In Class - This Sunday, January 12 at 11am. Stepping-In is a fun and interactive 60-minute class that will help your child understand what baptism is, discover exactly what the Bible says about it, and build their confidence in sharing their faith with others. Kids and students will need to attend this class before participating in NextGen Baptism. This class is offered 3 Sundays a year during our regular service times. Register Here now. 

High School Bonfire: Ready to come out of winter hibernation and warm up with us by a bonfire? We invite you to join us and kick the new year off the right way! Friday night, January 24 from 6-8pm, we will be meeting at the DeFoor's property (register to receive address) for a chill night of food, fun, and fellowship. It will be a casual night of warming up by a bonfire, cooking s’mores and hotdogs, and laughing together as we jump back into the swing of the school year. Register Here now.

Lexington Mission Trip: This trip will be going to Lexington, SC with middle and high schoolers to work with Next Steps Missions on July 12-18. More details can be found on the Outreach website page and we will be having a parent meeting January 26th between services in the student area for anyone interested!

High School Mission Trip: Details will be released soon, but please let us know if you are interested in joining this trip! Applications are available to fill out now.


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!

FGS YouTube Channel

Here you can find videos from FG Students including FGS vision, training for small group leaders, volunteer highlight videos, and insights on adolescent culture. Two new videos will be added each month.
