STUDENTS at First Melissa
Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. - 1 Timothy 4:12
In Paul's first letter to Timothy, we see the importance of youth. Timothy joined Paul in world-changing ministry only a few years after being saved as a teenager! After years of learning from Paul, ministering to many people in various cities, and growing in his faith, Timothy would become a pastor at the church in Ephesus. We see the same monumental potential in the teenagers of today.
First Melissa Students is where students (grades 6 through 12) can hear the true Gospel of Jesus told in a real and exciting way. We offer times every week for students to gather in community, have some fun, eat some food, join in worship, hear the Word, and discuss what God's Word means for their lives. Our team of selfless volunteers help make our events the best they can be by engaging students in discussion, leading by example, and keeping our students safe.
We know the world is loud and full of opinions, half-truths, and outright lies. We want to be a calm in the storm, a lighthouse in the darkness, and a place where students hear the truth of Jesus' love for them. We look forward to seeing your students as we seek to disciple the leaders of tomorrow!
