Ministries / Youth Group Students


    Youth Group

    Our aim in the Youth Group Ministry is first and foremost to glorify God by coming alongside the families of 7th - 12th-grade students at Grace Immanuel in the shepherding of their children. We firmly believe that the only means by which hearts can be challenged and changed is through the Word of God and therefore everything we do as a ministry centers around the faithful teaching and applying of scriptural truth to the lives of the students. Based upon current county guidelines for social distancing we are not meeting as a youth group on Sunday morning for the current season.  However, we are meeting on Wednesday evenings for teaching and small group time together.  The youth ministry will also be planning events throughout the year as we are able within county guidelines, such as; retreats, summer camp, outreaches, and various activities. All of these events are meant to exalt Christ and His Word as well as build relationships between the leaders and students. As a leadership team in Student Ministries we are committed to serving, loving, and pouring into the lives of the students the Lord places under our care. 

    We meet weekly:
    Wednesday Evening 
    Jr./Sr. High Bible Study: 6:30-8:30 pm; Sanctuary
