Grace Student Ministry

Junior + Senior High Students

Within Grace’s church-wide mission to make disciples who make disciples, Grace Student Ministry (GSM) strives to be a ministry where every 7th-12th grade student is loved, known and accepted, taught about Jesus, and challenged to grow.

Your students are invited to join us in North Liberty for Refill, our weekly student gathering on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm.  Our typical Refill includes games, worship, Bible study and prayer in small groups (also called 'Life Groups') to grow in our knowledge and love for God and build community with one another. 

We encourage our Student Life Groups to meet together outside of Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings to get to know each other better and live life in community.

On Sunday Mornings

Grace Student Ministry (GSM) has an informal program on Sunday mornings for junior & senior high students between 1st & 2nd service (10:05 - 10:40am). It's a perfect time for your students to meet Brian, our Student Ministry Director, and other students involved with GSM in a casual setting. (During services, our teens usually join the rest of the congregation in service.)

Summer Schedule

Beginning June 1st we will kick off our Summer schedule which will go through August 18th. To see our summer schedule, check out the events page.
