Youth
 
 
 
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.
                                                                                                                          — 1 Timothy 4:12
 
With regular Bible study, yearly ski trips, local mission opportunities, fun outings, and lots of time for socialization, our youth group is the place to be!  Teens are given a safe space in which to ask questions and explore their faith, and they are nurtured in every step of their spiritual walk.  
 
The teens in our youth group are close-knit, supportive of one another, and very welcoming of newcomers.  Our group currently has 15+ youth and is growing all the time!  Come join us and see what happens when faith, fellowship, and friendship intersect!
Sunday Mornings
 
Although all those in 7th through 12th grades are considered part of “the youth,” our Sunday School is divided into two groups, and takes place Sunday mornings from 10:00 am – 10:45 am.  
 
7th and 8th grades  –  room 303
9th through 12th grades  –  room 304 (Youth Room)
 
All other youth activities are offered for the whole group together, 7th through 12th grades.
Sunday Evenings
 
Every Sunday evening, from 5:00 – 6:30 pm, youth are invited to join Youth Director, Cory Eckstein, in the Youth Room (room 304) for a light meal, Bible Study and fellowship.  ****Need more detail here****
 
Those in 7th and 8th grade, who are interested in music and musical performance, are welcome to join Grace Choir afterwards, at 6:30 pm, to learn new songs and work on projects such as a Christmas musical.
Wednesday Evenings
 
From 6:30 – 7:15 pm, following our Wednesday Night Fellowship meal, Youth again meet with Cory in the Youth Room (304) for devotions and a time to socialize.  ***Need more detail here***
 
Handbell Choirs
 
Youth interested in potentially joining the youth handbell choir are encouraged to speak with Mrs. Leslye Ames, our Director of Music Ministries.  The youth handbell choir practices Wednesday evenings at 5:00 pm, prior to Wednesday Night Fellowship.
