The Gathering is our campus ministry program, which has been active in Ann Arbor for over 100 years. Each Wednesday evening starting at 5:30, college and graduate students are invited to our Campus Center (adjacent to the church building) for a home-cooked meal and study with discussion. Learn more about The Gathering.
We are working to build an exciting program for the middle school and high school students in our congregation, and are beginning a search for our next youth minister. In addition to weekly Church School classes, the Youth meet on the last Sunday of each month at 11:30 – 12:30 for Youth Worship. At least once a month the youth have another activity with a social and/or mission focus. Each spring, the youth and children in our church plan and lead Sunday morning worship for the entire congregation. Throughout the year, the youth raise money for our sister church, school and farm in Nicaragua and also serve the Vespers ministry of FBC. This past Christmas, a group of our youth went on a mission trip to our sister church.
College students who work around the church building and Campus Center in return for their housing for the academic year. Learn more about the Sexton Program.
