REC Student Ministry

Ministry Overview

We exist to reach students for Christ, to worship Him who reconciles all things and recreates us into His image--transformed lives following the call of Jesus.  In addition to having time to be together, our students are involved in the larger life of the church and participate in the Sunday morning worship band in addition to being involved in numerous service projects.   


As with all programming for minors, all regular volunteers have been screened via a background check and have been trained regarding best practices for safety and security.  Our student minister is Sly Samudre (Sly's bio page).

Sunday Mornings

9:15AM-10:15AM:  During this hour, students begin with snacks and are then divided into age-graded classes to learn biblical truths about God, Christ, and how they should live in light of the gospel.  We have a great team of committed teachers that invest each week in our students during the Sunday morning Bible study hour.

10:30AM-11:30AM:  Our students participate in the entirety of the corporate worship service each week, at times playing significant roles as volunteers.  

Sunday Nights

6:00PM-8:00PM:  On Sunday nights our students have their large group gatherings.  This includes a time of organized games, snack supper, and worship through song and Bible study.  Sunday nights are a great time to bring a friend and to experience community and grow in knowledge of and love for God.  

During the summer, this moves to 4:30PM-6PM with an optional meal at a local restaurant as a way to get families together and provide some time hanging out outside the walls.

Wednesday Nights

6:45-8:00PM:  On Wednesday nights during the school year, our student ministry has a small group devotion and discussion in addition to sharing a meal together.  Wednesday nights are a valuable time of relationship building, spiritual growth, and practical servant leadership.  

Special Events

Our student ministry participates in numerous special events, retreats, and mission projects/camps.  Some of these projects are done in partnership with the local Northstar Church Network of Northern Virginia and other events are just for FBC Springfield students.  Fun events include REC Weekend, game nights, and escape room adventures. Additionally, our students regularly serve in the broader life of the church through events like VBS and the Easter Egg Hunt. Last summer, our students participated in MFuge Summer Camp @Belmont University in Nashville, TN on Juy 10-15.  Stay tuned for the next major trip!
