WHAT IS

STUDENT MINISTRIES

Student Ministries is especially designed for 6th to 12th grade students. The goal of the Student Ministry is to introduce students to who Jesus is and teach them how to follow Him by learning what the Bible has to say about living a full life. Students are looking everywhere to find fulfillment and purpose—we know that only comes from Jesus! We want to help them get connected and begin to consider what they think about God. Along the way we hope to create environments where they can find friendship, community, and learn how God has gifted them as they begin to live out their faith with generosity and compassion.

 

MIDDLE SCHOOL

We have a number of great programs and events specifically designed for our middle school students (6th-8th grade).

OVERTIME is our weekly middle school service and consists of live music, games, time to hang out with friends, and to hear about Jesus and why His life matters to us today. This service meets Sunday nights from 5:30-7:30pm at our Montrose location on Sunday nights.

STARTING AUGUST 9th

Our middle school service called OVERTIME will move away from Sunday morning service times and move to Sunday nights.

SUNDAY FROM 5:30-7:30PM AT OUR MONTROSE LOCATION
565 S. Cleveland Massillon Rd.

CONNECT GROUPS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL

Sunday mornings at the 9am and 11am services, different kinds of connect groups are offered for students in 6th-8th grade. There are both virtual and in person options. For a description of all the available groups and to sign up click the button below. Starting August 9th

HIGH SCHOOL

Merge is our high school ministry that is aimed at reaching 9th-12th graders in the greater Akron area. We have weekly services that are fun and engaging but that also challenge students on a spiritual level.

Throughout the year we offer retreats, a summer conference, life groups, and mission trips. Our desire is to create atmospheres where students feel like they belong, they have purpose, and can explore who God has created them to be.

WEDNESDAY AT 7PM AT OUR MONTROSE LOCATION
565 S. Cleveland Massillon Rd.

GET INVOLVED

STUDENT LIFE GROUPS

God calls us to live out our lives the way Jesus did. Once we know how Jesus lived, we can begin to imitate his life. We do this best as we share life together in community. Student Life Groups are a great way for you to really get to know other students at Grace. These small, relaxed groups are designed to be a place you can feel safe to discuss real life issues that we all probably have faced.

SERVING

Serving is faith in action. It allows us to experience God together and increases our faith. How? It’s a front seat to not only watch, but be a part of God changing people’s lives. In fact, you were created for service. God has given you specific gifts and a valuable role to play in focusing on and caring for others. You’ll be drawn to very heart of God.
