Jr. High Glide
Welcome! GLIDE is our Jr High youth Ministry here at Grace Chapel. We strive to provide a great place for our students to learn from God’s word and grow in relationship with each other and Him. Our passion is relationship, so let me tell you a little bit about how we accomplish this!
Sunday Mornings (9:00am & 11:11am)
Our Sunday service is a time for our students & adult leaders to come together for worship. Students arrive on Sundays and get to connect with each other & familiar adult volunteers. Then we worship through music, giving, & teaching God’s Word. This year, our teaching is based on the “Discipleship Journey” book that our entire church is doing, & our weekly lessons correspond to the study schedule that the church is following.
Wednesday Nights (6:30pm-8:00pm)
On Wednesdays, we meet briefly as a large group for worship and a recap of our lesson from the previous Sunday. Then we break into small groups and spend time looking at practical ways to apply what we are learning, and also allow time to talk about what’s going on in each other’s lives. The great part about small groups is that we are intentionally building relationships by having the same students & adult leaders together each week. We do this by organizing our groups by grade and gender, and by keeping the same leaders together with that group as the students continue to advance a grade each year in school. This creates the potential for years of growth and the opportunity to share life together!
Once a month on Wednesday nights, we have what we call “Game Night”. This is an opportunity for us to get together as a group and enjoy Pizza and fun together. Our goal for “Game Night” is to have a blast enjoying the relationships we have with each other and creating an environment where new relationships can grow. We also have a variety of trips and activities planned throughout the year, including Summer Camp, Winter Retreat, and the Luau.
Our Youth Ministry is committed to equipping young passionate believers of Jesus Christ, and we believe that developing lasting relationships with our Jr. High students is the foundation to accomplish this.
We are available for you anytime, so if you have any questions, would like to volunteer or would like to get to know us better feel free to call the church office or contact me via email: Ian Gilchrist
