The Student Ministry of Grace Point Church exists to come alongside families in the biblical training of youth from 6th-12th grade. We recognize that the primary responsibility of bringing up teenagers in the “training and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4) is the job of the Father and Mother. We also recognize that in our society there is a blend of families such as single parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, grandparents raising grandchildren, etc. Regardless of the family background of each student, we want our student ministry to be a place where students can learn about God and what it means to be a fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ.
Students at Grace Point have many opportunities to get involved. We have weekly small groups each Sunday at 9:00 am. On Sunday nights we have regular discipleship activities. Each Wednesday night we have a worship service for youth led by our Youth Praise Band and one of our Elders. Throughout the year our student ministry provides a chance for students to participate in ministry and missions in the church and community. We have monthly events for fellowship and fun in the Lord. And, each Summer our students attend Centrifuge and M-fuge camps and we have various youth retreats throughout the year to facilitate spiritual growth.
Parents and other adults have a very important role in Grace Point’s Student Ministry. Whether it is serving on our Student Ministry Team, leading a small group, or being a chaperone at an event, adults are a vital part our ministry to students. They provide a godly example for our students and build spiritually-focused relationships to encourage and challenge students to live for Christ at home and at school.
