We Desire to Serve Entire Families for

Christ-Centered Ministry


The REACH Student Ministry is a safe and inviting place for all 6-12 grade students to find community with others and grow deeper in their faith. Our passion is to reach students in our community to share Christ’s love and help students know who Christ is. We also strive to equip our students to reach out to their peers, point them to Jesus, and make disciples.

Students have fun learning about God’s words and teachings through our interactive curriculum. Each lesson has activities, object lessons, games, discussion, and reflections reinforcing the main point and biblical teaching/concept. Our goal is to teach students how to apply the Bible to their everyday life and situations that may arise with being a teenager.


The Zone is our after-school program for students at the Central Oakes campus. On Tuesdays, students are invited to our Christian Life Center (CLC) at 20 E Harris until 6:10 pm for open gym (basketball and volleyball), arts and crafts, games, cooking and sewing classes, refreshments, and even homework help if needed. 

We do ask that the following expectations are followed:

  • Once you enter the building, you cannot leave until “The Zone” closes at 6:10 pm unless a parent/guardian picks you up earlier.
  • Girls only in the girls’ rest room, boys only in the boys’ rest room.
  • You may only enter and exit the front door.
  • Please help pick up and return the equipment when you are finished using it.
  • No cussing, bullying, fighting, or PDA.
  • If it is illegal or not allowed at school, it is not allowed at “The Zone.”

First Baptist staff and volunteers have the right to ask you to leave “The Zone.”
