Youth

Teenagers are growing into a new phase in their faith.  At Grace, we rejoice in and respect this growth process, and we accompany youth on their journey.

The youth program at Grace Church follows the Journey to Adulthood curriculum. The foundation of the program is the idea that manhood and womanhood are gifts from God, but adulthood is earned. We work with our church’s young people to think and pray about what it means to be a child of God, and what it means to be an adult. We do this through Bible study, evening programs, fellowship, and special events such as trips to Heifer International’s Overlook Farm and Washington D. C., movies, service projects, and more.

We are still in the beginning stages of the program, and thus currently offer only the Rite-13 part of the program. For the 2013-14 school year, the program was available for 7-8th graders. 5th and 6th graders have their very own Sunday morning program to prepare them to start Rite-13 in the fall of 2014! Any questions? Please feel free to contact us.

CONFIRMATION

Part of the Journey to Adulthood program includes confirmation at the end of the program, around age 16. Because we are in the early stages of the program, we are currently not running any youth confirmation classes. However, if you have a young person who is interested in confirmation, please contact us.
