An American Baptist Church
A Welcoming and Affirming Church, A Safe Space For All

At First Baptist Church we believe that children and young people are vital to our faith community. There are many opportunities for children and youth to participate in our worship and fellowship life.

The Youth Group

The Youth Group is a diverse and energetic group of young people comprised of 6th-12th graders. They have various meetings and programs throughout the year that center around building community, community action, faith formation and social justice. Our activities have included participation in: Heifer Project, Walk for Hunger, Worcester Pride Parade, etc. The Youth Group also enjoys hanging out, playing pool and getting to know one another.

Sunday Morning Worship

Our children and youth are encouraged to be active participants in our Sunday morning Worship Service. The youth occasionally participate as ushers, greeters, and also read scripture. In addition, a Children’s Message called the Moment of Wonder is a regular feature of the Morning Worship Service.
