Grace Students is a community in which students can experience God’s love in a real and relevant way through Wednesday night student services, as well as a variety of activities throughout the year. We want students to have the opportunity to connect with each other and learn more about their faith.
Student Nights & Grace Groups
Grace Students services currently starts at 6:30pm every Wednesday and are designed to provide middle and high school students with the opportunity to hang out, make friends, worship and grow together. Doors open at 3:30pm.
Each week begins with about half an hour for students to spend time hanging out with each other. Then, we join together in worship and listen to a message. Last, we break into small groups called Grace Groups. Grace Groups are based on age and gender and are led by an adult. They allow students to get to know each other and connect on a deeper level through Bible study and discussion.
Our hope is that Grace Students are just the beginning of students’ relationship with God and interaction with the Church. Grace Student services are on Sunday nights so that students are able to attend regular weekly church services with their families. Students are also encouraged to participate in church-wide outreach in order to utilize their gifts and talents.

Outreach is very important to Grace Church. Students are always encouraged to take part in church-wide or family-oriented outreach operations, and are also given opportunities to serve within the context of Grace Students.
- SOAR R&R Nights—One of the specific ways in which Grace Students partake in outreach is by hanging out with and taking care of the siblings of SOAR special needs individuals during R&R Nights.
- Freedom Fire—Grace Students serve as missionaries in our own city! Simply show up and hang out with 80-100 urban kids, make crafts together, play ball, serve a meal, clean-up, and show the love of Jesus!
In addition to weekly services and outreach opportunities, Grace Students have many different events and gatherings throughout the year.
- Summer Camp: Each Summer, Grace Students go to summer camp with the goal of having a good time and learning a lot about God. Camp typically lasts about a week and is open to both middle school and high school students. The camp and location vary by year.

At Grace, our desire is to create a culture in which parents embrace their role as the primary faith influencers in the lives of their kids, while being resourced and supported by the local church. Grace@Home is a 20+ year discipleship model that we have developed in an attempt to support parents in raising children who are lifetime followers of Christ.
