Youth Programs at Grace
Grace offers several different programs for youth. Here are some of the offerings.
Following Sunday morning worship, children age pre-K through eighth grade are invited to learn about the amazing truths of the Bible. They learn everything from the story of Creation and the Great Flood to the birth of Jesus and his death on the cross and his resurrection. Students also learn how the Bible offers guidance on dealing with challenges in their daily lives.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School offers children the opportunity to grow in the good news of Jesus Christ through daily fun Bible-focused activities. Vacation Bible School is held for one week in July for grades pre-K to eight.
Classes are held on Wednesdays during the school year for students in grades 6-8. Sixth-graders study the four Gospels and are introduced to Luther’s Small Catechism. Seventh- and eighth-graders receive more intense Catechism instruction. Upon successful completion, students are confirmed in their faith toward the end of their eighth-grade school year.
The Grace-Immanuel Luther League, also known as GILL, is for students in grade 5-12. The group meets monthly for fellowship and time to grow in God’s Word. We also hold several fun activities including a trip to Valley Fair, paintball, bowling, winter outdoor sledding, roller skating and other adventures.
If you’d like your children to be involved in any of our youth activities, contact the church for more information.
