What a crazy summer it’s been! We sure miss seeing your faces every week and getting to worship next to you in our worship gatherings. We are eager for the day we will all be able to safely gather again regularly, but we wait patiently in humble dependence on our Lord and rejoice in His unchanging goodness.
We know that Covid-19 is affecting everyone differently and that it sometimes feels like you have to make adjustments daily… we feel it too! Our student ministry team has experienced a variety of adjustments over the last 5 months (some pandemic-related, some related to changes within Mosaic) and we want to update you on where our team is at, what our plan is for the Fall semester, and invite you into praying with us as we continue to seek the Lord’s guidance for moving forward.
Our adult services will continue to be the main source for teaching and worship across our entire congregation (we invite students and parents to worship and discuss together). If you have any questions about this or would like assistance in planning times of discipleship discussion with your middle school or high school child, please reach out to Scott or Janie!
A “Cell Group” is a home-based small group where students gather to study God’s Word. Students meet weekly throughout Northwest Arkansas during the school year in groups based on their grade, region, and gender. Cell Groups are led by college and adult leaders who are passionate about the Gospel and making disciples. They are focused on prayer, accountability, Gospel-centered truth, and relationships to encourage Christ-like growth and discipleship. We provide cell groups with age appropriate, scripture-based studies and resources that correspond to our Saturday night sermon series or go over applicable topics. View Middle School Curriculum or High School Curriculum.
Our ministry is dependent on volunteers who love serving students in the name of Jesus. We have serving opportunities for musicians, A/V tech, cell group leaders, host homes, and mentors. Whether you’re a parent, a student, or a volunteer desiring to pour into youth, we would love to talk with you about getting involved! Contact us for more information.
All FSM cell group curriculum, teaching audio, and trip/retreat documents can be found in one place, on our Resources webpage.
Each year, our team coordinates five events that are significant Gospel "experiences" for Fellowship students. They consist of Chill Out (winter), Mission Trips (spring), Ravencrest and Timberline (summer), and Fall Retreat (fall). Event Schedule 2019-2020
