Sundays: 9 & 11am LATEST MESSAGE


Hello from the FGS Team!

Parents, we believe the middle school and 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 FGS ministry. In this newsletter, you will find a look at recent events, an update on what is currently happening on Sundays, and some things to know in the coming weeks.


Next Gen Baptism: At the beginning of November, 9 of our Fellowship Greenville kids and students were baptized during the Next Gen Baptism service! We loved celebrating this milestone with some of our FG families!

  • FGS Middle: Middle School meets Sunday mornings at 9 and 11 AM in the Student Building! Small groups happen during the service, and all new students will be placed in a small group! During the month of December, Middle School will be in a Christmas series.
  • FGS High: High School meets Sunday nights from 6-8 PM in the Student Building! Small groups happen before service from 5-6 PM. These small groups are optional, but highly encouraged. Students wishing to join a small group can show up at 5 PM in the Student Cafe on any Sunday when High School meets! During the fall semester, High School will be in a series called “Presence” in which we unpack the tension of how God moves where He wants but also comes where He is wanted.
  • FGS Online: For our middle and high students at home, we offer our weekly service online on YouTube. This online service will be a livestream of our first hour middle school service at 9 AM on Sunday mornings. Our high school students at home can watch the livestream of the main FG service at 11 AM and keep up with our current high school series by listening to the FG Students Podcast or watching the message on our YouTube channel later in the week.
  • No FGS Middle Dec 17: FGS Middle will not meet on Sunday morning, December 17 because of the beginning of Christmas break. However, Middle School students can join us on Sunday night for our Christmas United Night!
  • Christmas United Night: FG Students invites all Middle and High School students to join us on Sunday, December 17 from 5-8 PM for our annual Christmas United Night! We would love all our students to invite a friend and come enjoy a night of food, games, worship, and community. Dress in your best or tackiest Christmas outfit. This is a free event with no registration, but students can bring cash for the food trucks.
  • No FGS Dec 24 or Dec 31: FGS Middle and High will not be meeting on Sunday, December 24 or December 31 due to the Christmas and New Years holidays. Students can join their families for the FG Christmas Eve services on Sunday, December 24!
  • MS Sky Zone: FGS invites all of our Middle School students and their friends to join us for our annual trip to an indoor trampoline park! FGS Middle will be at Sky Zone Greenville on Wednesday, January 10 from 6:30-8 PM! Check-in will start at 6:00 PM and then we will have 6:30-8 PM to jump. The cost is $10 per person at the door. Bring a friend and come jump with us! No registration is required, but visit the website to complete the waiver and find the address.
  • HS Bonfire: FGS invites all High School students to join us and kick the new year off the right way with a chill night of food, fun, and fellowship! Our Annual High School Bonfire will be on Friday, January 19 from 6-8 PM. 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 online for this free event to receive the address.
  • Next Gen Stepping-In Class: On Sunday, January 28 at 11 AM, we will have another Next Gen Stepping-In Class. Stepping-In is a fun and interactive 60-minute class that will help your student understand what baptism is, discover exactly what the Bible says about it, and build their confidence in sharing their faith with others. Students will need to attend this class before participating in Next Gen Baptism. This class is offered 3 Sundays a year during our regular service times. Register your student online here.
  • Parent Podcast: FG has launched our parent podcast, Parenting for a Change, with Next Gen Pastor, Matt Densky, and Executive Pastor, Rob Marks. How do we parent our kids well in the midst of all kinds of change? How do we change as parents so that, in turn, our kids change for the better? Our hope and prayer is that parents would grow in their own faith in Christ and then pass on that kind of authentic faith to the next generation. This first series of podcasts will break down 5 principles of what it looks like to pass on our faith. Listen on Spotify or the FG Website!
  • 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 five minutes to read but keys you in on three major culture/news happenings along with questions to discuss with your students. 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 lives of your children!
  • Parent Cue: This resource offers content for parents that is specific to your students’ phases and can be accessed on the Parent Cue website or with the Parent Cue app. Available content includes parent resources, discussion prompts, and blog articles written by parents with relevant topics that matter to parents. We hope this resource provides you with encouragement and helps you disciple your children!
  • FG Students Podcast: Each week, we upload our Middle School and High School Sunday messages to our FG Students Podcast. This is a great resource for parents wanting to have further conversations with their students about what they are learning on Sundays! If your student misses a week, they can also go back and listen to past messages. Our podcast is available on Apple Podcasts or on the FG Students page of our website under Resources.
  • FGS YouTube Channel: Here you can find videos from FG Students including Middle and High School messages, FGS vision, training for small group leaders, volunteer highlight videos, and insights on adolescent culture.
