Grace Student Ministries (GSM) exists to make lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ among the next generation and to be a generation known among the nations (Isaiah 61:9). We do this by encouraging, educating, equipping, and empowering students in the faith.
GSM longs to create an environment where our Middle and High School Students can be refreshed and renewed in worship, fellowship, and the study of God’s Word. We invite you to join us on Sunday Mornings at 9am and 10:45am in the Main Service, as well as during our Encounter Services, Wednesday Nights at 6:45pm.
GSM seeks to root and ground our students in the study and application of God’s Word in their day-to-day lives. The first and third Wednesday of each month, following worship, students dig deep into God’s word during a time of teaching and response. The second and fourth Wednesdays, following worship, students break into discipleship groups to discuss the message from the week before and digest how they can live that out beyond the church walls.
GSM offers service learning projects regularly for students to put their faith into action including a monthly food distribution with Northeast Georgia Foodbank, Kids First Ministries, and serving in different areas around the church. We also want to help our students become global influencers, and we are in the process of developing opportunities for them to serve overseas on short term mission trips. Students can also be a part of Grace Student Arts (worship band, choir, vocal ensemble, drama, and percussion ensemble) and minister in our services/community, as well as embark on a tour this summer.
GSM aims to care for the whole of the student. We know students are engaged in so many areas outside of church: home, school, sports, clubs. Therefore, we seek to empower them in these areas, as well. Our leadership team does our best to meet students in their school lunchrooms, on the football field, basketball courts, theatre performances, band recitals, coffee shops, and hospital rooms. We want our students to know we care about all these areas, as well as how they can demonstrate their faith in these areas, too.
