Students

Welcome to Fellowship Students!  We are a ministry for 7-12 graders and it's our desire to help students find and follow Jesus Christ!

Student Ministry

Our ministry for middle and high school students is called Surge. A surge is defined as a sudden powerful movement, and our vision is that our ministry will not simply be a fun place to come and go every week but rather it will be a movement that spreads through Topeka and the surrounding areas.

We don't believe this generation is the future of the church, but rather that they are the church today and that God is calling them to make a difference in the world for Him.

Surge

We meet every Wednesday from 6:30-8:30pm. Our time includes fellowship, worship, teaching from God's Word, and community groups.

Retreats

We have two annual retreats: a fall retreat for all students and a winter retreat specifically for juniors and seniors to help prepare them for their next step.

Missions

We believe the biggest life transformation happens when students engage in mission trips. From local partnerships in Topeka to global partners as far as Costa Rica, we provide opportunities for students of all ages to get involved.

Summer Camp

Join us for our biggest event of the year.  Spend time in community while growing deeper in your relationship with God.  This event is for all rising 7-12 graders.

BECOME A COMMUNITY GROUP LEADER
Do you have a passion for building relationships with students and walking alongside them in their faith? We would love for you to be a part of our Surge community group leader team! Our community group leaders are the primary relational connection for our students at Surge. As a community group leader, you will shepherd and disciple the students in your group, modeling a faith in Christ and sharing life with them. We would love to help you get connected in our ministry!

If you have an interest in serving in Student Ministry please email Tim Walker at twalker@fbctopeka.com.

WEEKENDS
At FBC, the weekend services have been a time that we desire for students to worship with their families and serve within the church. We do this to give students a picture of the importance of being a part of the larger church and not just our student ministry. We also want to take the opportunity to develop giftings and passions to serve the body of Christ.
