Teenagers are at a very important stage of life. Between hormone changes, challenges at school, and questions of identity, there is a lot to sort through!
With this in mind, the Youth Ministry at GBC is devoted to ministering to these teenagers — between 7th and 12th grade — in our church. The youth ministry, together with all of the ministries in our church, seeks to partner together to accomplish our five-fold purpose:
- Exalting God’s Grace
- Growing God’s People
- Reaching God’s World
- Preaching God’s Word
- Modeling God’s Love
In order to accomplish this, there are a variety of resources and events for the youth at GBC
BIBLE STUDY — WEDNESDAY NIGHTS — 6-8pm
Every Wednesday Night we gather together for our Youth Bible Study from 6-8pm for grades 7th-12th. We do many things during this time, including a time of worship together, fun and games, and occasional food. But our primary purpose for gathering on these Wednesday nights is to open the Word of God together in order to better understand WHAT God has said to us and HOW we are called to live it out.
SUNDAY SCHOOL — SUNDAY MORNINGS — 9:30-10:30am
In addition to our Wednesday Night Youth Group, we meet together on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30am for Sunday School. For our Sunday School study, we will usually do more topical studies, such as going through a book together or looking at a particular doctrine or topic. We have looked at a study on Francis Chan’s Crazy Love, a year-long study through the Heidelberg Catechism, and The Gospel Project’s Chronological Bible Study
SERVICE PROJECTS — 3rd SUNDAY — 4-6pm
In order to serve the elderly and widows both in our church and in our community, the Youth gather together every 3rd Sunday from 4-6pm to cut grass, stack wood, move furniture, blow leaves, etc. If you are interested in requesting the youth to come do a project at your house, please download this form and return it to Zack Ford or the church office.
In addition to the things listed above, there are many other things that the Youth of GBC are involved in — community outreach, fun trips (whitewater rafting, summer camp, etc), equipping parents, and many other things. We hope that you will check out the Youth Ministry at GBC.
Please let our Youth Pastor, Zack Ford, know if you have any questions or comments. You can contact him at the church by calling 706-746-5823 or by emailing him at Zack@MyGraceBibleChurch.org
