Youth Life

The Way: Following Christ Together

The Way is FBC Las Cruces Middle School and High School community. It is a place to build relationships, have fun, and grow in your relationship with God. Every week, students get to experience community, a time to worship with music, student-targeted teaching and discussion, games and activities, and adults who truly care for them. We have big events, camps, retreats, and mission trips throughout the year. All to help students build a lifelong faith in Christ that lasts.

Youth Night

Youth Night is our main event. Sunday nights 6-8 pm. We go all out with food, activities, worship, teaching, and small groups. It is the place to be for students to worship, serve, and connect with God and others.

Sunday Morning Bible Study: Foundations

During our 9:45 am and 11:00 am Sunday morning services in the breakout rooms. We are exploring the story of the Bible from start to finish.

Come early and grab some snacks before breaking into our different groups.

Connect Groups

Want some more intimate time? Come Wednesday Nights from 6-7 pm during the school year. We have a middle school guy's group, a middle school girl's group, and a high school group that meets in the breakout rooms. It is a time to dive deeper into life and how our relationship with God infects our lives and each other.
