At Grace Church, we provide a middle school and high school ministry for youth 6th grade through 12th grade. We meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM downstairs from the sanctuary in the Student Ministries Room.

Our youth ministry is led by Pastor Paul Mannino and staffed by trained, regular small group leaders who are there to help your middle schooler or high schooler grow in his or her faith, know others and be known, and make their personal faith public by serving others.

A typical Wednesday night is a relaxed environment in which we don't take ourselves too seriously, playing fun games that are interactive and challenging. As the night goes on, we funnel our energy and attention towards God as we worship Him through music and engage with the Bible through a relevant message. After the message, guys and girls split up into age-specific groups in order to process what they're learning.

On a Sunday morning, we encourage our youth to take what they're learning and how they're growing and mobilize it by serving the church in various ministry roles. We believe what is learned while serving is critical to developing a strong faith that lasts beyond the high school years. That's why we want to see tweenagers and teenagers serving all over the place on a Sunday morning. Currently, you can see youth working in the nursery, helping with preschool, and serving in the elementary ministry. Honestly, the sky is the limit on the ways a middle schooler or high schooler can serve on a Sunday morning; and we want to do everything we can to set them up to own their own particular slice of the ministry of Grace Church.

Through the use of ReThink's "XP3 Students" curriculum, we are going to present God's truths in a way that is memorable, understandable, and doable for our youth. Because we mean what we say when we talk about partnering with parents, each week, we provide a summary of what our group is learning in a parent email. The idea is that conversation could open up at home if both parents and youth were engaging in the same material. Also, we have resources available that we provide for youth to grow in their devotional life as well-- books, reading plans, etc.

Also, if you have any questions about the Youth Ministry, don't hesitate to contact Pastor Paul Mannino.
