Grandview Youth Group meets on Fridays from 7 to 10 in the Youth Room (church basement) during the school year. This is a smallish and close group of friends, led by Jake Tucker, our Youth Pastor.
Together, youth learn about the “big story” of scripture through dramatizing plays and study, experimenting with prayer, and parties (food, games, music, occasional dancing). There’s lots of chill, lots of joking around, as well as talking about big stuff.
We share in a youth Bible study on the first Sunday of each month during the sermon in the morning worship service. There are also small group Bible studies that youth do in pairs with Jake.
We are nourishing these three aspects of our teenage community:
- Integrating the youth as participants in the wider church community who share in our vision of receiving and extending the radical welcome of God in Christ.
- Fostering deeper community within the youth community at Grandview.
- Nurturing deeper discipleship in Christ.
