Grace Students Mission:
to make disciples who obey Jesus  





Rooted Logo GS pageJr. High Youth Group

Grace Students (grades 7th-8th) meet on Wednesdays from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM in the Barn! Our goal on these nights is for students to encounter Jesus, become a part of our family, and grow in their relationship with Jesus. Every Wednesday night, expect awesome worship and teachings, growth as a follower of Jesus in Life Groups, and great hang time with others! In the Spring of 2018, we are focusing on rooting ourselves strongly in the Gospel through the Rooted experience. We will examine different topics related to the essentials of the Gospel, as well as some
new spiritual disciplines to devote ourselves to.   



Rooted Logo GS pageHigh School Youth Group

Grace Students (grades 9th-12th) meet on Wednesdays from 7:30 PM-9:00 PM in the Barn! We are kicking off the Spring semester with Rooted. Rooted is the next step of our discipleship journey where we  will continue growing in grace and putting down deeper roots in the Gospel through spiritual disciplines (particularly the habit of spending time with Jesus each day). Our gatherings will continue to be conversation based through smaller groups.  These groups are a safe environment to ask honest and real questions about God, explore the big questions of life,
and grow as a disciple of Jesus each week!



Grace Students Serve!

As called by James 2:15, Grace Students serve!  We make an impact in our community by loving and bringing hope to the "down and out."  Join us as we serve the least of these, in Jesus' name!  Our next 2:15 Project will be on March 3, 2018.

Jesus said, “Go and make disciples,” but what does this really mean? Have you ever felt insecure in making disciples? Do you know how to share your faith with others? The M28 Collective will help equip and train you in evangelism, discipleship, and missional living. This 6-week gathering is open to everyone, but is mandatory for overnight Soul In The City leaders.
