Grace Youth Ministry (GYM) exists to support families as we strive together as a church family to challenge students (Grades 7-12) to trust and treasure Jesus Christ for the good of their world and the glory of God.
No matter where you are in your journey, we hope that you will find GYM to be a place where you are accepted, challenged, inspired, forgiven, and loved. We are a community who have our victories and defeats, who doubt and hurt, just as much as anyone else. But we follow a God who forgives, heals, accepts, and loves us. He proved it by sending Jesus to die for us. Below are the main opportunities we offer students as they learn to journey with Jesus.
1. Bible Hour
Sunday mornings @ 10:00 am
Middle School ~ Letter to the Philippians (Room 117)
High School ~ Discipleship: Learning how to follow Jesus and how to help others follow Him too (Rm 118/119)
2. The Collective
We meet on Sunday afternoons from 4:00 – 6:00pm. This spring we are discussing the book of Hebrews.
Our time together includes teaching, fun, fellowship and food in a large group setting for grades 7th-9th and grades 10th-12th. Then we break into small groups by gender.
Each month students gather together…or huddle. These fellowship opportunities take many forms as we gather to have fun, serve and share Jesus with others. Past Huddles include bowling, Christmas caroling, foot golf, Royals baseball, ice skating, and evangelistic outreach. Please contact us for information for the next event.
Part of following Jesus is serving and loving others. Our students are a very active group, serving weekly in the church. Examples include Worship Team and AWANA.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:13-16 ESV)
5. Summer Camp
Each summer we provide opportunities for students to have fun together and grow in their relationship with Jesus. This summer we are heading to Red River Valley Honors Camp in Wickes, Arkansas from June 18-25. You can learn more about Red River Valley Honors Camp or register here.
