Third Place

Why Third Place?


When and Where Do We Meet?

Simply put – our goal in the Christian life is to put God first and others second. Thus, at Third Place we try to teach the importance of a God-centered life and the need to serve others. Third Place is a place where tweens and teens can be themselves without condemnation and hear about the love of Jesus in a non-threatening, hospitable environment.

Third Place is a youth group for students in grades 7 to 12 led by Youth Director Justin Carlton. Our goals mirror those of our larger body, Fellowship Bible Church, and include the following:

To exalt Jesus Christ and love others as He loved us
To lead teenage students to passionate, healthy, and personal relationships with Jesus Christ
To equip them to reach and disciple their peers, and develop vital, personal ministries in their communities

Third Place meets weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Come to the gym and we’ll show you where to go from there.


Who Can Come?

Students in grades 7 through 12.


What Can I Expect?

Our weekly meetings during the school year are split between teaching and small groups, where we break up by gender, grade, and school district, and our small group facilitators expand upon the lesson from the week before.

Sr. and Jr. High schedules run opposite of one another, so that while Sr. High students are in teaching, Jr. High students are meeting in small groups (and vice versa).

We meet altogether for games for the first half-hour of our regular meetings, head upstairs to the gym loft (our designated youth group space!) for announcements and a time of worship through singing, and then split up for small groups and teaching.

During the summer months, we suspend small group meetings and meet altogether in one big group for June-August.

Sunday School

Sunday School is an important part of a child’s spiritual development. Through a well thought out curriculum, our teachers take students through the Bible, helping them to gain a good understanding of what the Bible is all about and also how it applies to their lives.

When and Where Do We Meet?

Fellowship Kids Sunday School meets each Sunday at 9:30am in the Children’s Wing of our church.


Who Can Come?

Students in kindergarten through 12th grade.


What to Expect

All of our classes are divided into different grades and separated by gender. Students will have a brief time of general discussion before the class starts, and then will move into that week’s lesson. Classes are over by 10:45am.
