FRED is the youth group of Faith Baptist Church for those in 7th-12th grades. FRED now meets at the church building. FRED meets every Wednesday during the school year, minus a few holidays or other unique days, and meets occasionally over the summer months. FRED is kinda a funny name for a youth group, so why call it FRED? Well, letters in FRED stand for Fun, Relationships, Evangelism, and Discipleship. The youth group of Faith Baptist Church seeks to be a (fun) get together where good (relationships) can be built and youth can be encouraged to trust in Christ (evangelism) and learn how to follow Christ (discipleship).
"The only way to be a good leader is to be a good follower; a good follower of Christ" (PJ)
