What We're All About:
GP Students (6th - 12th grade) exists to partner with parents in pointing the hearts of students to live as disciples of Jesus who live in community for the community. We seek to do this through creating ministries where students and parents can LEARN from Jesus, LIVE in Jesus, and LEAD others to Jesus.
Learn: At 608, students are able to connect with others their age in a fun environment, engage in worship through music, while hearing a challenging message geared toward them. Students at Grace Point are encouraged to serve on Sunday mornings, meet in a student group on Sunday afternoons, and participate in the 608 student gathering on Sunday evenings @6:08PM.
Live: From 4:00-5:30pm on Sunday afternoons, middle school and high school students meet on the Grace Point campus. Student Groups are a great place where students can be known, cared for and supported as they seek to live as disciples of Jesus in community for the community. Group discussions focus on key parts of faith and what is taught in the 608 gathering. All students are welcome to participate. To register click here.

Statistics show that when teenagers are in meaningful, mentor-like, relationships with adults who love Jesus, they are more likely to connect to a church, bring their friends and stay in the church beyond high school. To find out more about serving, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
