Our desire is to see young people grow and mature into passionate followers of Jesus. We are committed to solid Bible teaching that is relevant to a teen's life while providing a place where students can cultivate strong friendships with other believers.
Summer is the best time of the year! It provides a break from school, time to relax, and time to earn some money at a summer job. In order to keep youth group momentum going we have come up with the idea of Summer Nights.
Summer Nights will be held at different homes every week during the Summer. We will spend time enjoying the outdoors, playing games, swimming in a few pools, watching movies, eating s'mores and hearing the stories of the host family.
You don’t want to miss out on these awesome nights! Mark your calendars and bring your friends! You don’t want to miss the fun!
We believe that God wants to do amazing things in and through the lives of our middle and high school students here at Grace. Our goal is to help students know Jesus and live like Jesus. We want our students to be a part of Grace Youth and feel right at home.
Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions.
What age group is Student Ministry for?
Grace Youth is uniquely designed for 7th-12th graders. We promote everyone in June, so incoming 7th graders are welcome to join our summer trips and activities!
When and where do we meet?
We meet every Thursday night from 6p-8p downstairs in the Youth Room.
Just follow the signs and you'll find us!
What happens on a typical Youth Group night?
We begin the night with some food and games. This gives our students a chance to get to know others and build relationships. Then we are led by a live band in engaging worship. We spend the next 25-30 minutes opening God's Word together. We do our best to teach on topics that are relevant and encouraging. We close out the night in adult-led, age-specific discussion groups where our students can form strong, close relationships with both leaders and peers. It is always a good time!
