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! Our youth group is for 6-12th grade youth. We meet three times a month from 5:30-7:30 PM on Sunday nights.

Youth Discipleship Ministry
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 it means to live as a disciple 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 DCE Christine Medcalf, director of Family Ministry and DCE Matt Burgener, Minister of Youth and Young Adult. We are here for the sake of your youth’s continued growth as a disciple of Christ.
Generate Summer Retreat: Entering 6th-12th Grade
The Generate Retreat is our annual youth ministry experience for youth entering 6th grade through 12th grade. During this week-long experience, youth are encouraged to take the next step in their faith journey and challenged to know God and make Him known! This will be a week they will never forget!
