FWC Youth – Velocity

Velocity Youth Group is a community for 6th -12th graders who are passionate about loving God and loving each other. We have a fun, welcoming atmosphere that strengthens friendships and builds new ones. Everyone is encouraged by their leaders and peers in all aspects of life. It is a fun, safe place to have a good time, make friends, know God, share struggles, get direction and perspective on real life issues, and be a community that does life together.

We empower each other to make good life choices and to incorporate the supernatural in everyday life. Through dynamic teachings, discussions, events, and videos, each teen is challenged to live their lives to their fullest potential and change the world by knowing and being who God made them to be.

Music and worship also play a big part of our time together as we utilize our teens’ musical talents. Participation and creativity is highly valued and encouraged at Velocity, and we love helping our teens develop their skills and passions whenever we can. We also value relationship and connection, so we do fun group activities, play games together, go on fun weekend outings, and make time for small groups where teens can feel free to share what is on their hearts and get support for anything they may be struggling with.

Our Youth Pastors, Stephen & Kayla Switzer were both blessed as young teens to be a part of youth groups that made a huge difference in their choices and direction in life. Because of the support that Stephen and Kayla had from their youth groups, they are now passionate about creating a community at FWC where teens feel loved, accepted, and encouraged through their unique season of life. Their desire is for every teen to have a place they can turn to for support and guidance, and their passion is for the youth to change the world by growing into the fullness of their identity in Christ.

We meet on Sundays in order to best reach our regional community of Believers who often travel long distances to get to FWC. Our desire is to create a special community for the teens while encouraging them to value what they can receive from participating in the corporate body of Christ. Hence, we rotate between having youth group during FIRST HALF and SECOND HALF of Service on Sunday Mornings.

A typical FIRST HALF Sunday (during 10am worship) looks like this:

  • 10am Worship in the Teen Room (just for teens in the youth room)
  • Game Time
  • Small Group
  • 11am- join the corporate body for the Message

A typical SECOND HALF Sunday (during 11am message) looks like this:

  • Everyone does corporate worship at 10am
  • 10:45am Teens head to the Youth Room
  • Game Time
  • Short Teen Message
  • Small Group
  • end at 12pm along with the corporate body

*If you’re not sure on a given week if youth group is during 1st half or 2nd half of service, check the sign on the youth room door. The youth room door is off of the new Big Room that can be accessed through the glass doors in the Café. Look for our Velocity Sign 🙂
