  • LightHouse Youth Ministries

    Wednesdays: Join us from 7:00-8:30 PM on Wednesday nights in the Youth Room at Grace Community Church. 

    Wednesday night is our large group gathering and each week includes a time of worship, led by our awesome student praise team, and a lesson given from God's word, usually led by Pastor Eric or one of our high school student leaders.

    Most Wednesday nights during the school year include a small group portion to the night - we call these "Discipleship Groups" as we aim to help students identify where they are spiritually and help them take the next step in their growth. These groups are led by our phenomenal team of Youth Staff and broken up by grades. These groups usually meet in various locations around the church campus and are dismissed at the conclusion of the lesson.

    Sunday School: Designed to help you go deeper into the Word and in your faith, these classes are for teens who call Grace their home. Meets during first service, come and attend worship with your families and be dismissed to your classrooms after worship.

    • Middle School Students: Meet in the second floor classroom (Room 210) 
    • High School Students (grades 9-10 only): Meet in the Youth Room

    *Students who do not wish to attend the Youth Sunday School classes can stay with their parents in the service.
