Your first visit
Students in grades 6th -12th may join Grace Students by simply attending one of our Wednesday night gatherings. All students are checked in by our friendly staff, placed in a group with their peers and assigned a small group leader who will help guide them through the night’s events and get to know them personally.
Students can expect a time of worship music and prayer, an element of fun designed to build connection with other students and leaders, teaching from the youth pastor or another leader, and a time of small groups where they can ask questions and grow in their knowledge of God and His Word.
When students check in, they can do so without their parents but we do require correct contact info for parents/guardians in case of emergency along with the student’s full name & grade.
Grades 6 - 8
Sunday Morning | 10:00am & 11:30am
This time is designed to help middle schoolers grow in their knowledge of God and His Word. This is a structured teaching environment because we believe that words over time give a student direction.
Students can meet their class leader and their group in the front right seating section at the start of the service or simply meet in the class room off of the main corridor at the conclusion of the song service.
Wednesday Night | 7:00-8:30pm.
This time is designed to be relational and fun because we believe that fun over provides student with connection. Students can expect to experience something fun, a time of worship, Bible teaching, small groups and community with other teens their age.
Grades 9 - 12
Wednesday Night | 7:00-8:30pm.
This time is designed to be relational and fun because we believe that fun over time gives a student connection. High School students will also experience a time of prayer, worship, and teaching from the Bible. This will intentionally address issues they deal with on a regular basis.
Why no Sunday Morning gathering?
We intentionally invite High School students into the main worship service because intergenerational worship is the #1 catalysts that helps students make their faith their own. Number 2 on that list is serving others. We have many serving opportunities on Sundays that many of our High School students could embrace. It not only meets a need of the church but it everyone wants to make a difference!
Even though we do our best to be attentive to and supportive of students with special needs, we are not able to accommodate teens with severe disabilities at this time. If you are a parent of a student with significant challenges, we ask that you contact our NXT Generation Director. In most cases, the family of the student is the expert more so than we, so with that in mind we will lean heavily on the parent/guardian for guidance.
