Youth

We are committed to connecting others to Christ, especially students! Our Youth Ministries challenge and encourage teens to be active members in the church and our community, while guiding them on their faith journey.

Whether you are curious or committed, we have created an awesome space for students to explore their faith alongside their peers. Come hang out and enjoy meaningful conversations, learning scripture, and playing fun games.

Daily Devotions

Our hope is that these weekly devotions would give students encouragement, prompting them to read scripture, ask questions, and connect with God through prayer, while trying to navigate daily life that looks a bit different than normal right now. They're also on our Instagram page, @gpcjamplify.

March 30 - April 5

JAM (grades 6-8)

Tuesday evenings: Our junior high group meets from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the student ministries building. This is a time where 6th-8th graders can come and feel free to be themselves! We play games, do fun activities, engage in meaningful conversations, and dive into scripture to learn more about our loving God. JAM is great place for students to come and can feel cared for by our team of volunteers while enjoying time of fellowship with their friends!

Sunday mornings: In addition to JAM, junior high gathers during our 10:00 a.m. church service, beginning after the children are dismissed to Sunday School. We've got Bible exploration. We've got games. We've got DONUTS! Now all we need is you!

Amplify (grades 9-12)

Sunday evenings: Our high school group meets from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the student ministries building, and is a time where 9th-12th graders can start to explore their faith on a deeper level while building community with one another. We have a tremendous team of advisors who are here to lead and love these students as they enter some of the most exciting years of their lives. Sunday nights are a blast, and we hope to see you there!

Serving

Throughout the year, our students have opportunities to participate in projects aimed to help better understand what it means to serve others. We've provided school supplies to local students and teachers, raised money for children in developing countries by hosting the World Vision Walk for Water, and take part in service projects over Spring Break to support non-profit organizations already doing Kingdom work.
