wednesday nights.

During this mid-week gathering, students are given the opportunity to hear a Biblical message, have a lot of fun with friends, build deep relationships through small groups, be invested into by trusted adult leaders, and walk away challenged to impact those around them where they live, work, and play.

Learn more about

Grace Student Ministry (GSM).

At GSM, we truly believe that there is a space for you here where you can feel loved and be known, heard, and understood. There is a safe place where you can be your true self. There is an opportunity to engage with the God of all creation through worship, mission, and community. We believe that YOU BELONG HERE.

GSM exists to see junior high and high school students (7th-12th) be and make disciples for the glory of God through being wholeheartedly committed to the Worship of God, fully engaged in the Mission of the Gospel, and intimately connected to the Community of Believers. We accomplish this through our weekly gatherings, online resources, and annual discipleship events that are specifically created with students in mind.

We desire to offer a safe, relaxed, come-as-you-are environment where a student can build friendships, become deeply known, and connect to the greater body of Christ. Our prayer is for all students to understand what it means to walk in the freedom that Christ offers and live fully alive in obedience to Him. And our hope is to leverage the natural rhythms in each kid’s life to fulfill the end goal of launching them into the next season of life as a resilient and dedicated disciple of Christ.

Furthermore, it is our hope to come alongside the family and serve each parent in their efforts to disciple their children. Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to be encouraged, equipped, and empowered to thrive in the role that God has graciously given to parents. We believe that parents are who God intends to be the primary disciple-makers in a child’s life, as seen below in Deuteronomy 6:5-7 (ESV).

YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT. AND THESE WORDS THAT I COMMAND YOU TODAY SHALL BE ON YOUR HEART. YOU SHALL TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY TO YOUR CHILDREN, AND SHALL TALK OF THEM WHEN YOU SIT IN YOUR HOUSE, AND WHEN YOU WALK BY THE WAY, AND WHEN YOU LIE DOWN, AND WHEN YOU RISE.

We truly believe and hope you feel that YOU BELONG HERE.

We’d love to meet you, hear your story, and find a way to get you connected and plugged in to the life of GSM.
