Youth

Our Mission Statement

We, the youth and adult volunteers of FBC Lumberton, like people everywhere, are created by and loved by God. Our mission is to discover the depth of that love through studying the life of Christ Jesus and to share that love with the people of our county, state, nation, and beyond. Our mission is to love and accept people rather than judge and to forgive others as we have been forgiven.

For questions about our youth ministry, email Doug Reedy, Minister of Youth.
