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 CAMP AT CAMP CARL IS HAPPENING THIS YEAR! 

We are so excited to be taking our Middle School students back to Camp Carl this year! Grace Church’s week of camp is from June 13-18 and we would love to see all of our students there. Spots are limited due to space capacities so the sooner you register the better. While at camp, students will interact with trained counselors, our middle school student ministry team, participate in activities like hiking, horseback riding, tubing, swimming, large group camp games, and lots more.

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 large group middle school service that consists of live music, games, time to hang out with friends, and to hear about Jesus and why His life matters to us today.

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

CONNECT GROUPS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL

Connect groups for Middle School students are now offered at our Saturday evening service at 6:30pm as well as Sunday morning at the 9am and 11am service.

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.

Student Life Groups are for students in 6th – 12th grade and are divided by grade and by gender. Ex: 6th grade boys and 6th grade girls. Each group is led by caring adults who are committed to investing into and discipling the students in their group.

Middle School: Life groups for middle school students are held during the second half of Overtime on Sunday evenings at the Montrose building. (565 S Cleveland Massillon Rd)  The Overtime program is from 5:30-6:30pm and groups meet immediately afterwards from 6:30-7:30pm.

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.
