Youth Programs

mission trip ice creamGrace Church invites all youth to be active members of our faith community.

Grace’s Youth Ministry offers programs for all middle school and high school students (and their friends). Highlights include church school, confirmation classes and our youth mission trip. Use our youth program as a tool to help you successfully navigate your busy lives. Here are just a few ways to participate:

  • Work on service projects: be a Sunday school assistant, serve at Trinity Hot Lunch, package food to send to families around the world, be part of our youth mission trip.
  • Have fun at social events: play laser tag, watch movies, carve pumpkins, play video games, meet new friends.
  • Help raise money for good causes: wash dogs, sell pastries, be a waiter/waitress at the Italian dinner, collect spare change.
  • Find new ways to explore your faith: come to Sunday school, get confirmed, attend Diocesan youth events, be part of our youth prayer circle.

Please check our monthly newsletter, weekly announcements (print and email) and church bulletin boards for all the latest news throughout the year. Parental consent forms must be signed by a parent or guardian before attending any off-campus events.

If you have questions about our youth program, please contact Janis Greenbaum, Director of Christian Formation and Communications.

Please check our youth news page for event listings.

Youth Mission Trip

The highlight of our high school youth program is our annual mission trip. For more than 20 years, teens from Grace Episcopal Church have traveled within the United States to spend a week working serving others. For the past several years, we have worked with Habitat for Humanity. With the help of several adult volunteers, the youth begin planning the trip early in the school year and hold fundraisers throughout the year to pay for the trip. The trip takes place the first week of June and is open to teens 15 -18 years old.
