Youth grades 6-12 are welcome to participate in Grace Church’s Youth Group. Youth Group empowers Youth to explore the Christian faith and to develop their own understanding of God’s presence in their lives and the world around them. Both Middle and High School Groups meet from 4:00-5:30 p.m. in the Youth Room most Sundays.
What’s it all about?
We engage in a number of different activities as a parish group and sometimes join with other youth across the diocese in activities. Youth Group takes seriously the need to deal with what is real for young people, to honor questions and to place a scriptural, spiritual and liturgical frame around each one of those experiences. AND we also participate in mission trips, immersion experiences, building a Youth Room, the Mardi Gras Pancake Supper and a ton of other wonderful activities. You will find a link to the registration form on this page. Please complete and return to Grace Church clergy or staff for your young person’s participation in Youth Group.
Short Term Mission and Immersion Trips
Jesus sent his followers into the world with instructions to proclaim the good news of God’s love to and for all of creation. Grace Youth share that message with others through word and action both in the church community and outside of it. Two prime experiences that empower teens to do just that are Grace Youth Mission and Immersion Trips. An Immersion Trip is a short term experience serving others and finding God in places beyond the DC metro area. Middle School Youth go on an Immersion Trip each Spring to Philadelphia. High School Youth participate in a Mission Trip, which builds on the experiences begun in Immersion Trips. Mission Trips tend to be a week-long experience of seeking and serving God and others. In the summer of 2017, Grace High School Youth will travel to Atlanta, GA for their mission trip to DOOR Atlanta. For more information click on the links below.
All Youth and their friends are welcome to participate in Youth Group, Immersion Trips and Mission Trips. You don’t have to be a “member” of our parish to join the fun. Contact Rev. Amanda (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
