Who's in youth group?
Students grades 7-12.
When do we meet?
We meet every Tuesday evening(location changes from month to month) for Bible study along with various events throughout the month.
What are we about?
We are all about seeking Christ first. We learn and discuss the powerful things that God is doing in our group both personally and corporately. GCYM partners with parents to help students (1) establish a relationship with Jesus Christ (2) encourage students to grow in their relationship with Him (3) equip students to live a life in service to Jesus Christ. We believe in an inter-generational church where all ministries come together into a relationship of discipleship that will strengthen their walk with Christ. We want to provide an atmosphere where students can feel safe, welcome, and a part of something bigger than themselves. Our passion is to encourage students to share their love of Christ with their friends.
