fusion (7th-12)


Due to COVID-19, we will Live Stream every Sunday at 9:45 a.m.


FUSION is designed to help middle school and high school students grow their faith, their character, and their relationships. It's about creating an atmosphere where they can belong.

At Fusion, we connect the youth of Butler to each other, serving the community, Christ, and to our First Church family. We strive to build in them a solid Biblical foundation for life that they can always lean on during times of trouble.

So if you are looking for a place where you can learn about a God who wants to be a part of your life, create lifelong relationships with students your age, and be plugged into a place that cares about you, we invite you check us out during any of our weekly events. We are excited to hear your story. Come and check us out!

OUR CURRENT SERIES: "Hard Questions"

For the final few weeks of the school year, we will be concentrating on a few difficult questions and aspects of life that we do not always know the answers to. These are questions like: Why is there pain and suffering in the world?, How do faith and science coexist?, and How come I don't feel close to God? It is important to have a Biblical perspective on these questions so that our foundation will be built on faith in a God who is in control even when we do not have all of the answers in front of us.
