7th - 12th Grade

At First Baptist Nashville, teenagers are not marginalized members of the body, but fully engaged partners in the divine work of the church. First Baptist Students is a place where students in Grades 7-12 can do life together in a fun and authentic environment where they are known, loved, and encouraged to model their lives after Christ.

AXIS  (Sunday Mornings)

AXIS is our Sunday morning Bible Study for students at 9:00am. Tim teaches the bible in a large-group setting through relevant series that will encourage and challenge students as they navigate the journey of being teenage Christ followers. We have Breakfast Sunday at least once a month, and we also look for opprotunities to volunteer and serve. Click here for a detailed Sunday schedule.

MIDWEEK  (Wednesday Nights)

Wednesday nights from 6:00pm – 7:30pm is MIDWEEK, a fun evening of games, worship, and small groups (guys groups and girls groups led by our team of adult leaders... we tie in our small group discussions with what we discussed in AXIS the previous Sunday). MIDWEEK is designed to deepen our students’ relationships with one another and with Christ, and to help them refuel in the middle of the week.
