Youth

TeenagersHow can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
Blessed are You, O LORD!
Teach me Your statutes.
With my lips I have declared
All the judgments of Your mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.
(Psalm 119:9-16)

On Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30, we meet in the "upper room" above the Fellowship Hall to worship the Lord through song and Scripture study. The focus of our curriculum and activities center around knowing and applying Biblical truths and cultivating a God-centered worldview.

Youth Mission Statement

Our goal at Grace Bible Church is to assist parents in developing students who are independently dependent on Christ. We seek to come alongside parents to help them with the awesome responsibility of raising godly students. We recognize the years from about 12 to 25 to be some of the most formative years in a person's life. Therefore, the Student Ministries of Grace are strategic in our efforts to take advantage of this opportunity. We believe that laying a foundation of biblical truth—with accountability for living it—will best prepare them for a life lived to serve the Lord.

Purpose

  • Exaltation: To prize and honor God above all else

  • Edification: To build up and encourage one another in the body of Christ

  • Evangelism: To proclaim to a lost and dying world the eternal glorious gospel

Philosophy of Ministry

And we proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ. And for this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me. (Colossians 1:28-29)
