Equipping and launching students who know Christ deeply and make Christ known globally
Dalraida Baptist Church knows the modern day teenager goes through many struggles. The “teenage years” is an intense season of change. Teenagers search for answers to their struggles in all of the wrong places. These worldly sources tell them that the answer to their problems is found within themselves. This always results in despair and hopelessness. Dalraida Baptist Church desires to see students look to Jesus Christ as their ultimate answer and satisfaction.
DStudents is an equipping and launching ministry for students, 7th-12th grade, led by Student Pastor, Joseph Falcione alongside a team of Equippers made up of faithful, adult leaders from Dalraida. By graduation, every student will be challenged with the gospel and taught to live and share it with others so that they will be equipped for the next season of life God launches them into, whether that is college or a career!
The gospel of Jesus we share with our students and equip them to share is this:
Opportunities to Grow in Christ
Midweek is the Wednesday night worship service for DStudents. It begins at 5:30pm and ends at 7:15pm. DStudents has an annual theme that influences the series taught at Midweek. In 2023, our theme is “NEW.” All lessons at Midweek will focus on this theme. Currently, students are going through the first half of Ephesians focusing on the new identity they have in Christ from salvation.
Every Sunday at 9:15 AM, DStudents meets for Sunday School. We divide our student classes into four small groups which are separated by age. Our groups are divided high school boys, high school girls, middle school boys, and middle school girls. DStudents uses Gospel Project curriculum from LifeWay.
Sunday Morning Worship
We highly encourage all of our students and their families to come to our regular Sunday morning worship service. Dalraida Baptist Church believes the meeting of Christians as a congregation is a mandate of Scripture as seen in Heb. 10:25. The preaching of God’s Word and the fellowship of Christian brothers and sisters is essential for a God-centered life. Our morning service begins at 10:30 AM.
We encourage our students to join one of our church-wide discipleship classes hosted at the church on Sunday evenings at 5:00pm. Students have the freedom to join whichever class teaches what they are interested in learning!
Parenting and discipleship can both be intimidating at times! Parent Labs are designed to equip parents of preschoolers through 12th graders with information and resources to disciple their children and parent from a biblical perspective.
