An Update on Youth Ministry

Hello All,
I would first like to start by apologizing for the delayed communication concerning youth ministry. I hope that you are all doing well and seeking God's patience, guidance, and grace during this time. We know that this time is difficult and strange for all of us and it is our desire to come alongside you and help you disciple your student during this time. There are four main ways that we are seeking to engage students during this time:
1. Short devotional videos
2. Band discussion boards
3. Zoom video hangouts
4. Coffee Conversations.
Below is a more in-depth look at the plan we have developed for youth ministry during this strange time. There are multiple ways that your student can be connected and participate and we need your assistance (as Parents) in helping to connect your students with these different opportunities. Please don't hesitate to reach out for any reason during this time. We would love to help minister to your student in whatever way we can.
God bless,
Chris Watson

Short Devotional Videos

Every Tuesday and Friday we will publish a short video devotionals on our Youth Instagram Account and under the Youth Tab on the church website, These devotions are aimed to help encourage students during this time.

Band Discussion Board

Band is a free smartphone app that allows groups, or bands, to communicate with each other. We will be using Band as a discussion board of sorts. Along with the Video Devotionals, Students who sign-up for the Band app will be sent questions regarding that day's devotional. Adult youth leaders, as well as myself, will help to guide, respond to, and encourage students to be thinking about the questions posted in the Band app. You can join the Band app by clicking the link below that applies for your student's age.

Zoom Video Hangouts

Zoom is a free video-conferencing service that allows groups to hold video meetings. We will be using Zoom as a way to hang out and play games with Students. Zoom is fairly easy to use. Click on the appropriate link below to sign up for Zoom. When it is time for the Zoom meeting, click the link again to join the meeting. Zoom video hangouts will be split into three 30 minute sections. Middle School Girls will Zoom Wednesday's from 7:00-7:30pmMiddle School Guys will Zoom Wednesday's from 8:00-8:30pm. And High School Students will Zoom Sunday's from 7:00-7:30pm.

Coffee Conversations

I would love to talk/hang-out one on one or with your student in a small group. To do this, have your student feel free to Skype video call me anytime between 10:00am and 4:00pm Monday through Friday and I would love to hang-out with them.

Having a firm foundation in God’s Word, understanding how to apply it to life, and knowing how to use God’s Word in our relationships with others is what we want every young man and woman to leave Grace with as they head off into life. Our middle school and high school ministries are set up to provide our youth with an opportunity to become familiar with every book of the Bible in middle school, and to equip them in the foundations of our faith from God’s Word in high school. While we strive to incorporate God’s Word, life application and building community for Christ in every activity, we provide an emphasis in each area through a variety of opportunities for our Youth throughout the week and year.
