Grace teens have fun playing basketball at a 4-Youth event earlier this year.

Grace Church is partnering with other Episcopal Churches in our area to offer fun and faithful events for our youth members this summer.

The “4-Youth” Group is planning activities designed for middle AND high school students. These events will give teens a great opportunity to serve the community, enjoy fellowship with other Episcopal teens in our diocese, share our faith and enjoy the summer.

Here is our “4-Youth” summer schedule. If you are interested in attending, you can leave a reply below, sign up in Albright Parish Hall or contact Christian Formation and Communications Director Janis Greenbaum. Please note that all these events need additional adult/parental assistance — please consider being a part of our group when you are able!
