College-age & Young Adult Ministry
Community for College-Age and Young Adults
Here at First Baptist Greenville, we encourage all our members and visitors to find a small group where they can explore fellowship and discipleship – in addition to being involved with church-wide worship, service, and events. If you are a college student, grad student, or young adult living in or around Greenville, we hope you will consider The Bridge as your tailor-made small group! We meet three or four times a month, on Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings, to share meals, explore Greenville, and begin to build a community together.
Everyone is welcome at The Bridge – seekers, disciples, sinners, and saints – and we hope to see you soon! The best way to stay up-to-date on events and schedules is to follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
About Our College Ministry
College students and college-age folks are important to the life and ministry of First Baptist Greenville! Whether you grew up in this congregation, you came to the Upstate for undergrad or grad school, or are college-age and working in the area, we want to help you find community and belonging. While we offer events specifically for our college-age community during holiday and summer breaks, The Bridge brings all of our college-age and young adults together for regular fellowship and formation throughout the year. Follow us on social media @firstbaptistbridge to find ways to plug into the life and ministry of First Baptist Greenville.
Sunday morning Fellowship
If you are interested in engaging in spiritual formation on Sunday mornings, we encourage you to take part in the Forum @ First, a new series of intergenerational courses in theological education. On the weeks when the Forum does not meet, The Bridge will meet in the lobby of the AYMC for a discussion of scripture and current events. BYOBreakfast!
Scholarships are available for undergrad and graduate students.
The Scholarship Committee of First Baptist Greenville serves as the primary recipient of gifts from generous church members and friends, or by their heirs as memorials for loved ones, who have left funds to assist students in their education. The committee exists to evaluate qualified individuals who are church members and/or friends of church members seeking financial assistance in pursuing an undergrad or seminary degree by granting them academic scholarships.
First Baptist has four primary distribution funds from which academic scholarships may be awarded, each of which was established with its own criteria. For questions concerning applications please contact Sarah Carter.
