GraceWay Youth

The Youth Program at GraceWay Church is focused on helping middle and high school students take the next step in their journey towards Jesus Christ, no matter where they may be on that path. And we have a lot of fun, too!

Wednesdays at GraceWay

Youth Group meets on Wednesday nights (when school is in session) from 7:15-8:45 p.m. and is open to anyone in 7th – 12th grade, whether or not they attend GraceWay Church. At Youth Group, students grow in community through the teaching of God’s word; discussions that help apply the teaching; and interaction through games, music, food and spending time together.

Beyond Wednesdays

Opportunities to Serve

Many of our youth group members also serve elsewhere in the church. They share their musical talents on the youth worship team, help with AWANA or children’s Sunday School, and serve in other ministries at the church.
