Youth Ministry

Our teenage years are some of the most formational and challenging years of a person's life. We believe that a foundation of faith will help our youth enter adulthood in the most balanced and healthy way.


"Adolescents who claim to have a personal relationship with the Divine are only half as likely to become alcoholics or drug addicts, or for that matter even to try contraband drugs like marijuana and cocaine.” - The Spiritual Child by Dr. Lisa Miller.

We believe that a spiritual and emotional home is not only good for a teenager's soul, but vital to their survival.


At Grace Chapel, we strive to build lifelong relationships that will help our teenagers develop a support system during a very critical and awkward time in their lives, and give them a faith foundation that will help them enter adulthood as mature and confident disciples of Jesus Christ.


If you have any questions about this ministry, email our Youth Minister, D'Andre Smith.

UMYF

Sundays from 5-7pm

UMYF stands for United Methodist Youth Fellowship. This is a time for youth to come hang out, be themselves, all in a safe place they can call their own. We will use this time to grow closer to each other and strengthen our relationship with God. We will go about this in many different ways including recreation, worship, and mission!

Summer Mission Trips

Each Summer, we head out of town to do mission work. Sometimes we only drive a few hours away, and sometimes we drive a few states away, wherever God calls us! Our youth have a passion to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community and world.
