1st Students Mission Statement: Teaching biblical truth to all students that they may grow in their personal faith in God through Jesus Christ our Lord through adventure, service, and leadership; building disciples who go build disciples.
Sunday School 9:45-10:45 am
meets in Multi Media Room, 3rd floor E&A Building
Sundays are geared towards community and gaining biblical knowledge. Lessons are based upon Sermon Series in both traditional and contemporary services. Group discussions are encouraged! Fun mixers and games encompass teamwork and team building.
Weekly Breakfast Groups:
Our students love getting up for breakfast and we love having breakfast with students! Breakfast groups are personalized to students needs; open co-ed, grade specific, friend group, or gender specific. Groups meet during the school year and may have a weekend retreat during the winter or summer.
We love our volunteer leaders!!!!! In fact we never have enough! We have students asking every week for small groups that we cannot accommodate due to not enough adults. To become a leader for 1st Students you must LOVE GOD & LOVE KIDS. You do not have to have deep biblical knowledge as we provide all your materials for you but you must pass a rigorous background check, have clean social media presence and be a member of FMC- Shreveport.

We have several ways to get involved with First Methodist Church. We love giving out service hours to students in various school clubs.
