Youth Council

Each year, Grace’s Youth Ministry encourages youth members to apply for a leadership role. Based on tradition and the book of discipline, youth council helps to plan the year’s calendar focusing on worship, mission, faith development and fellowship as well as assist in leading the Sunday evening programs. If you have suggestions and ways you believe your gifts and talents can be used to help connect your peers to God, please fill out the application. Please email Debbie Cali, Director of Youth Ministry, at office@umcgrace.org if you have questions.

All applications are due by May 15, 2022 at midnight.

Youth Confirmation Class Registration

Youth Confirmation classes at Grace are for students in 7th…

Youth Sunday School meets most Sunday mornings at 10am in the Generations room. The class consists of students 6th-12th grade and is a great place to come and learn and share joys and concerns of the week. Most Sundays, we will break the 6th graders out for a mission engagement project.

If you are seeking to learn more, or are questioning something, or just want to talk about your faith, please do not hesitate to reach out. Please send an email to office@umcgrace.org with the subject line “Youth and Faith.” Feel free to reach out by including your cell phone # if you would rather text. LEARNING AND GROWING in faith is the BEST use of our time!

Confirmation Class – This is a special class for students in 7th grade and up who are ready to explore what it means to claim their own identity as Christians. Click here for more info.
