Youth ministry at Grace exists so youth know Christ, grow as disciples, and go out as missionaries and leaders in His kingdom. Our goal is to ignite a generation for Christ! Throughout their time in Grace's youth ministry, youth will experience Biblical teaching and community in the form of large group teaching, small groups, service projects, summer retreats, and fellowship events!

Youth Discipleship: 6th-8th Grade
Youth Discipleship Ministry is a time of continued learning and growth in our faith. Youth will learn the grace of God found in Christ, what God’s word says for our lives today, what we believe and why it matters, and what does it mean to live as a disciples of Jesus Christ. At the end of these three years, confirmation is a reaffirmation of the promise that God made to you in baptism!
Youth Discipleship Ministry is offered at two times. Youth enrolled at Grace Lutheran School will take it during the day. Youth who attend an area school will take Youth Discipleship Ministry from 5:30 to 7:30 Sunday evenings. Classes are taught by Christine Young, director of Student Ministry. We are here for the sake of your youth’s continued growth as a disciple of Christ.
Small Groups: 9th-12th Grade
Grace offers high school small groups that continue faith and leadership development throughout the high school years. These small groups will serve together, have fun together, and study God's word together. The majority of these small groups meet on Sunday nights at the Cross View Way campus, although other times and locations might be available.
Generate Summer Retreat: Entering 6th-12th Grade
Every year, our youth head to the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri for the Generate Youth Retreat. Usually held in late July, this retreat is a week of life-changing spiritual growth! Youth are led through Bible studies, prayer sessions, personal devotions, and worship. They also get to enjoy talent shows, dodgeball tournaments, cave exploring, high ropes course, paintball, swimming, canoeing, campfires, and hiking.
