Youth Overview

We believe in discipling youth by walking beside them in all aspects of their lives.  Retreats and missions are avenues to grow in knowledge, sharing real life experiences of God at work in and through others.   Monthly fellowship events add fun and excitement to our lives together and provide youth with opportunities to celebrate the life that God has given us.  Through weekly study we grow spiritually and intellectually.  Ultimately, the youth program at Grace is a place for youth to experience God through many different avenues of events and relationships.  Join us and bring a friend!
