Youth Programs at Grace

Grace offers several different programs for youth. Here are some of the offerings.

Sunday School

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.

Youth Group

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.

What our Members say

“I like going to the Youth Group and meeting new people, and learning new things. I’ve learned about God and how he saved us. I like hanging out with friends. I’ve made good friends here.”

“Grace feels like home. I’ve known some of the members since I was born. I’ve made friends here. And my family goes here. I trust in what God’s Word is saying to me, and I understand it. It’s taught in a way that’s easy to understand. And I like to teach Sunday School. It’s fun to watch the kids learn and they’re excited about it.”
