Radical, our Junior and Senior High Youth Ministry, is a safe place where students can come together in the middle of the week and talk about life, faith, and God. The mission of Radical goes hand in hand with the mission of the United Methodist Church. Our mission is to provide safe community and meaningful experiences for students to seek Jesus and grow into disciplemakers who live like Him.
Making this mission a reality means doing our best to create opportunities for students to encounter God on a weekly basis, as well as have a good time together. Through being at Radical, students will be able to get to know Jesus and each other, sharpen one another to live out their faith, and have plenty of fun mixed in along the way. We welcome any and all students from 7th graders to Seniors to join us! To see more of our ministry, check out our Radical Facebook page.
What weekly programs are available for teens at Grace?
Get involved with our Junior & Senior High Sunday School class, "Church Group Time", where we have discussions about how faith relates to real life. We meet from 10:45-11:45 a.m. in room 208 of the Mason Building (across the street from the main Church building). Confirmation classes are also available for 8th graders in late winter/spring.
Enjoy a great midweek break with friends! Students from Junior High through Senior High meet year-round from 6:30-8 p.m in room 208 of the Mason Building (the Youth Room). Our Wednesday night meetings begin with a meal from 6-6:30 p.m. in the Hospitality Area of our Family Life Center.
Our youth ministry has many opportunities for students to connect with God and each other and make memories along the way. Anything from concerts to campfires, we always have things planned! Check out the Radical Calendar to keep up with what’s happening!
