Youth Groups

Elementary: Grade 1-5
During this age, we focus on building relationships with one another, kids and adults alike, so that as our youth grows into our middle and high school programs, the work of creating relationships and knowing each other has been solidified, and we can start to dig deeper into their faith and how it is intertwined with their life.  
 
Middle School: Grade 6-9
7th and 8th graders at Grace are part of our two-year Confirmation program. Each month there are fellowship events offered to create relationships with each other, with friends, and with Christ. This group learns how their faith is working in their life – real life application! 
 
High School: Grade 9-12 
Grace high school youth will have monthly youth group meetings for homework, fellowship, and faith formation! We are looking for families to host our monthly high school youth group dinners for 2020
 

Family Ministry
Family Ministry is an important part of ministry at any church and makes a large impact on the faith of both the youth and the parents. Part of youth ministry includes family ministry. Parents are with their kids more than any other person including youth directors, friends, and teachers. Parents are influential in shaping their youth’s faith. Parents are invited and encouraged to volunteer with G.R.A.C.E. Place, become Youth Group leaders, or join our Christian Ed team!

Grace families can also participate in an annual Family Mission Trip each summer.
