GraceYouth

What is GraceYouth?

GraceYouth is a place for our youth to grow, connect and serve God and that starts with us helping to develop  spiritually mature disciples of Jesus Christ. We want to make a difference in our homes, community, and our world so we are going to try different approaches, reach out to people in new and old ways, and to study God's word inside and out.  We're going to do all this through great friendships, studies that deal with real life issues, fun and challenging experiences and by offering chances to get your hands, mind, and heart into mission opportunities. We invite you to be a part of GraceYouth and bring all your gifts, questions, and dreams to this ministry and share and discover with us all that God is doing in your life.

                                                                              

When Do You Meet?

Sunday Mornings

Grace has a 8:30am (Traditional) and 11:00am (Contemporary) service with Sunday School in between at 9:45am. Each provide great worship and study time together. 

Sunday Nights

Club 56 (5&6 grades) and Junior High meet from 4-6pm where we start with hangout time and games then break into small groups and study God's word with one another. Sometimes we even find ourselves heading on the road to meet in different locations. Then we will come together for a meal @ 5:30. Come and Join us.

Senior High overlaps with the other two groups and shares a meal  @ 5:30 and then breaks away for small group studies and activities. We mix things up and sometimes find ourselves studying a new book, or serving a need in the community, or heading to an activity nearby. We want to invite you to be a part of Grace.

Wednesday Nights

On Wednesdays we share a church wide meal from 5:30-6:30 and then worship together with fun, laughter ,and study. This is a great time to be with friends and make some new ones but most importantly it's time to spend with God in worship. Come and share your gifts as a memeber of the GraceYouth Praise Band from 6:15pm

Parents

First of all we want you to know that we are here to help you and your family. There is no other job greater than being a parent and no pastor, mentor, or friend could ever replace you in your child's life! Teenage years are crazy hard on both student and parent, so please know we are praying for your family and are here to help. We have an amazing group of volunteers who love God and love working with youth. We will strive to give you the resources and support you need and walk beside you as you lead your family to Christ.
