Grace youth partners with parents to prepare disciple-makers who will be...
Rooted in Scripture
HIGH SCHOOL MINISTRY GROUPS
CLUB: Mondays 8-9pm
at the Grace Church Barn
This is our outreach night! Club is specifically designed for the teenager who would most likely not attend church. This is an opportunity for teens who might not be comfortable in a traditional church setting to learn about Jesus. It is an opportunity for students who are deeper in their faith journey to evangelize and share God’s love with their peers who may or may not know Jesus. All students will have fun, build relationships with peers and leaders, and experience God's love.
ROOTED: Wednesdays 6:15-7:30pm
at Grace Church
Rooted will help teenagers discover the value
of placing Jesus at the center of everything
during some of the most formative years of
their lives. Over four years, we will thoroughly
study: identity, decisions, commitment, and
perspective through a biblical lens. Rooted is where
teens will have the opportunity to be deeply rooted in their faith so that when they go off to college or the work-force, they have a firm foundation in their faith and what they believe. Rooted takes place during Meet & Grow.
CAMPAIGNERS: Wednesdays 8-9pm
at the McDowell's Home
Grace Youth will be partnering with YoungLife for their Campaigners bible study. We wanted to have two options for teens to grow their faith depending on their schedule. This Bible Study will go through the New Testament and explore the scriptures and students will discuss scripture as a group. It will be led by YoungLife and Grace leaders.
TRIPS AND RETREATS
We have a fall retreat and a summer mission trip for our high school students.
We have a lot of students and parents ask: What is confirmation? Confirmation at Grace is a set-apart time for students to explore the core parts of faith, ask questions, know the faith essentials, and at the end of that time, if they choose, they can be confirmed. It is about them figuring out on their own what do they believe in and why.
JR. HIGH MINISTRY
DEEP DIVE: Wednesdays 6:15-7:30pm at Grace Church
Deep Dive is exactly what it
sounds like! It is where we
dive deep into scripture and
learn about God's word, His
character, and how to live out
faith. Because of where they
are developmentally, junior
high students need a strategic
mix of education and experience.
The lessons we will teach during Deep Dive will help them follow Jesus, explore Scripture, develop healthy spiritual habits, and lead a life of service to others. Deep Dive takes place during Meet & Grow.
TRIPS AND RETREATS
We have a winter retreat in February and a summer local mission week in which students can participate in July.
6-YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN
For Jr. High and High School
As a tool for our students we will provide a 6-year Bible Reading Plan that they, and perhaps the whole family can do. This loosely-chronological plan goes through the entire Bible, Old and New Testament, repeating the Psalms once, and going through Proverbs three times. When students begin with Grace youth they will go through the entire Bible. We will follow-up weekly in person and on social media to see how they are doing with the plan and to encourage students to discipline themselves to be in scripture weekly on their own.
Medical forms are needed for all youth events! Please make sure you have one filled out for this school year. Forms can be downloaded HERE.
