Youth Life

Explore the opportunities for Youth at FBC Las Cruces.

The Way is FBC Las Cruces's middle and high school Community. Our goal is to create a culture where students are encouraged to make wise choices, positively influence their friends, and experience personal ministry through serving others. Each week, students experience a combination of music, games, teaching, and interaction with a dedicated small group of peers and leaders. The Way meets Sunday afternoons from 6:00–8:00 p.m. in the Worship Center.

Sunday morning Breakfast & Bible Study

Sunday morning, it's all about being fed, spiritually and physically! The Way student group meets every Sunday morning and promptly leaves the campus at 9:45 am via shuttle vans for a local, nearby restaurant for breakfast and Bible study. It's a focused time good for the body and soul. Students arrive back on campus at 10:40 am.

Building Culture

Building a Youth Culture where students grow closer to Christ while laying a foundation for a long-term walk with Him goes beyond just Sunday activities. The Way builds youth culture through monthly events, retreats, mission trips, and camps.
