Our desire for Students is for them to have an encounter with Christ that is real and life changing. We want to see young Christ followers grow up in their faith to become disciples who make disciples. We provide various events and opportunities throughout the year for them to engage and encounter a loving, gracious God as well as connect with amazing people who love them where they are, but will challenge them to grow deeper in their walk with Christ. We look forward to meeting you soon!

1 Timothy 4:12
"Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity."


Sunday School

Sunday School kicks off at 9am in the Student Worship Center with a brief gathering time for all students to mingle and mix and sometimes enjoy some doughnuts and juice.

Around 9:15 students dismiss to their respective classes that are structured to their age and grade and are led by teachers who love and challenge teenagers with truth from Scripture.

Student D-Groups

Student D-Groups meet at First Baptist Matthews on Sunday night from 5:00-7:00pm. Through these unique small groups, Students are challenged in their walk with Christ through Fellowship, Study and Accountability.

Student D-Groups follow the school year and take a break during the summer months.

Three distinct groups are offered to students to match with their faith journey.

  • D1 - is for students who may or may not be Christians, but are seeking answers and desire to know more of what Christianity is all about.
  • D2 - is for students who are Christians but are still seeking some basic understanding of the faith.
  • D3 - is for the mature Christian who desires to go deep in their walk with Christ and seeks to be challenged in various aspects of their faith.
