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.
We have a number of great programs and events specifically designed for our middle school students. Our middle school services consist of live music, games, time to hang out with friends, and hear about Jesus and why His life matters to us today. Questions and challenges are encouraged! We love to hear your thoughts and listen to your story.

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 IN THE GHENT AUDITORIUM
MOMENTUM YOUTH CONFERENCE
(9TH - 12th Grade)
Momentum is all about connecting students in 9th-12th grade to God, helping them to understand where they belong in God’s kingdom and how they can know God’s purpose for their lives. Momentum is about creating an atmosphere conducive to learning, listening, serving, and following Jesus.
Students come to this week-long conference expecting to encounter God, to be challenged in their faith, to take home some nugget of truth they didn’t know before, and to strengthen their commitment to their local church and youth group.

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.
Sunday from 5:45pm – 7:15pm
at the Montrose Location
Sunday from 5:30pm – 7:00pm
at The Student Center at Ghent Rd.
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.
