Youth

GRADES 6-12

GracePoint Youth Ministries

Our highest goal is to help students fully grasp the good news of Jesus and grow in a personal relationship with him. We do this by showing them how to know God, love others, and live out the gospel. Our Bible teaching is practical, accessible, and interactive, designed to equip middle and high school students to thrive in their faith at home, at school, and with friends.

The Mission

We seek to develop students who love God and love people in authentic, gospel-centered ways.

Authentic

We aim to help students cultivate "earnest, sincere, and pure love" (1 Peter 1:22) in their relationships with God and one another.

Gospel-Centered

Since the truth that Jesus Christ died for sinners, rose from the dead, and conquered sin's power applies to all of life, we want to see students believing, living, and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jr High Ministry (Grades 6-8)

Our Wednesday night and Sunday morning group times in the Loft are all about faith, friends, and fun. We strive to create an atmosphere where truth is spoken, relationships are built, and goofiness is encouraged! Each meeting includes time to play games, hang out with peers and leaders, and learn from God’s Word. We also offer fun events, as well as retreats, and service projects that go on throughout the year. There is always a way to connect with other students your age at GracePoint. Come check us out!

Sunday School- 9:45 AM (Resumes on September 11, 2022)

On Wednesdays, we discover what the Bible has to say about the issues students face, with crazy large-group games, small-group discussions, and plenty of time for fun with friends in between.

Sr High Ministry (Grades 9-12)

Our Sr High ministry gathers in the Bridge each week during the school year to share life, show love, and cultivate faith. We also enjoy monthly activities, retreats as a group for seasonal getaways, and serving others through summer mission trips. However you choose to get involved, you’ll be surrounded by a fun, caring community of people who want to help you flourish!
