First Irving Students

Welcome to the First Irving Students Page! First Irving Students exist to come alongside families in reaching, equipping, and sending students out with the Gospel for the glory of God. First Irving Students includes students from 6th-12th grade. We would love to be a part of discipling your student into greater Christ-likeness!

Family Worship

At First Irving Students, we believe parents are designed to be the primary disciple makers of their children. Deuteronomy 6 says that parents are to teach the ways of the Lord to their children so that they may know God, and love him with all of their heart, soul, and strength. In the tab below, you will see Family Worship Reading Plans, Guides, and other resources that are meant to help in teaching the ways of the Lord in your home, to encourage your family to love Jesus Christ with everything that you have. We would love to be a part of encouraging your family in whatever ways we can.

Wednesday Gatherings

The aim of Wednesday Night Student Gathering is to worship the Lord, spend time in the Word of God, and enjoy time in community with one another. We pray that these gatherings are a breath of fresh air, and challenge and encourage every student to be formed into the image of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:28-29). We are excited to gather every Wednesday on the 3rd floor from 6:15pm - 7:45pm. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our Student Minister, Kyle Backhus at

Weekly Small Groups

At First Irving, we believe that gathering together in groups is crucial in the life of a believer. Small groups are designed to build strong, biblical friendships, and encourage students to grow in their walks with the Lord (Colossians 1:28-29). Our weekly small groups meet on Sunday mornings on the 3rd floor starting at 9:30am. Pancakes will be served each morning starting at 9am to enjoy before we break out into our small groups. After our small groups, we encourage our students and families to attend the 10:45am worship service in the worship center. For more information on weekly small groups, email Kyle Backhus at
