It is true that our youth and children are the church of tomorrow as is so often said, but they are also the church of today. As such, Grace Community Presbyterian sees as one of our greatest responsibilities the need to lovingly shepherd the souls of our children from the time they are born through the time they leave home for college. Grace Community believes the best way to nurture the souls of our children are through the ordinary means of God's grace: teaching them God's Word and praying for them without ceasing. We also provide regular opportunities for our older youth to fellowship together through outings such as bowling, pool parties, lock-in's, and youth retreats so that our youth are building godly relationships with each other. Our kids are always encouraged to bring their friends to join with us in any of our youth outings! Lastly, we want to teach our children to serve our Savior through serving others, and we do this through leading our children in area ministry projects knowing that the ones who go are always ministered to more than the ones to whom we go. Most importantly, Grace Community ministers to our children by coming alongside our parents through praying for our parents on a weekly basis and tending to their growth in grace.
Join us for "youth group" (grades 6-12), every Wednesday evening at 6:30 led by Pastor Jason, which meets at the church in the youth room. During youth group, we share prayer requests, pray for each other, study God's Word together, and we usually end with some hang-out time playing games or going somewhere in the community to fellowship. During the fall of 2023 Pastor Jason will be taking our youth through some of the Bible's classic stories like Moses and the burning bush, David and Goliath, and Jesus turning the water to wine.
Grace Community disciples our children (ages 3 through 5th grade) during both Midweek and Sunday School. We have a network of parent volunteers who give of their time to teach our kids God's Word, and the elders and pastoral staff make it a point to regularly pray for our children of all ages.
