Looking for Graduates
If you know of someone connected to the church who is graduating this spring or has graduated since last year, please contact Juliana Smith or the church office as soon as possible.
Sunday mornings: New topics led by Kim Rumsey to follow.
Youth group at Grace is a place where we value different methods of learning and experiencing God. Worship often means doing something positive for others , and faith is built through connections with others.
On Sunday mornings, we meet for Bible study at 10:00 a.m. Our UMY (United Methodist Youth) group usually meets Sunday evenings for dinner at 6:00 p.m., followed by games, discussion, and devotions. We say “usually” because we sometimes instead feed the homeless, play Laser Tag, go Christmas caroling, build a labyrinth, join with other youth groups for games, and prepare dramas for worship. We love to have new people join our group!
Topical studies will include issues of friendship, communication, what it means to call the church home and be Christian in a contemporary world. We’ll pray for each other and our world and seek to deepen our relationship with God and each other.
Please contact Juliana Smith, our Youth and Children's Ministry Director, at (757) 595-0017 or email her at email@example.com if you would like additional information or have any questions about our Youth Ministry.
Our goals for the youth of Grace UMC are to:
What does youth group mean to our youth?
"A place where we can come together in a group to meet new people and grasp a deeper understanding of our faith."
Why do the youth come to youth group?
-Make friends/Meet new people
Why do our youth think think their parents send them to youth group?
"They want us to meet new people and create new friendships who will help widen our faith and build our character."
Why do the youth think that youth group is important to God? What does He want the youth to get out of it?
"God is Awesome and we wants us to acquire great friends, a higher knowledge, wisdom and a better understanding of Him."
