Sunday Morning Education Hour (9:15-10:15am)

Holy Ground (grades 6-12)

Come be, just be in the Youth Room. The space is quiet.  There is no program.  There are pillows and drawing materials and space and time to be with self and God. Occasionally there will be a guided reflection or gentle conversation but this is space to rest and “be still with God” for our teens whose lives are very busy and very full.

Sunday Forum

Youth who would like to are encouraged to participate in any or all of the Sunday Forums held in the lower level Forum Room each Sunday during Education hour.  Topics are listed in the Sunday insert, online and in the brochure on Adult Education at Grace.

Youth Groups 

Youth (grades 6th-12th) are invited to meet once a month in our Grace youth groups.  The activities are intentionally centered on themes of spiritual formation, fellowship, and service.  The calendar for the first half of the program year is listed below with specific times and other details provided in upcoming announcements.  Contact the Church Office or Debbie Coyle at! Know that friends are encouraged and welcomed to all Grace Youth events.

We are currently in need of a few more leaders for Growing Into Worship. This is our ministry with kids ages 4-2nd grade that happens during the first part of the 10:30 service every Sunday. It’s a fun time of learning some Scripture stories, praying and reflecting together. Contact Rev. Jen, Krista Babbitt, or Debbie Coyle if you are interested!

Save the Dates! Grace Youth Mission Trip – Summer 2018: Sunday, July 22 – Saturday, 28* - Grace youth will once again be participating in a program through the Society of St Andrew focused on addressing hunger, a gleaning project. We are waiting to hear from the Society on a final location (last time we were in Arkansas) and will have more detail soon with sign-up   beginning in March.  The work will fall in the range of the dates listed above. We put a little room for travel time which could be shortened depending on our location. Sign up will begin in early March. Stay tuned!

Grace Cheers! All the time- Let us know when you have events outside of Grace (games, plays, concerts…) Your Grace Youth friends and leaders would like to come out and support you! Talk to Debbie, Phil, or Howard  as they work with you to gather your fans!
