Children's Ministry at Grace

At Grace United Methodist, we focus our teaching not only on learning the Bible, but also on helping the children see how the Bible relates to their own lives.  We know that children can have a wonderful relationship with Jesus and can trust God.  We know the lessons they learn from the Bible can help them make wise choices, grow as a Disciple of Jesus, and treat others in this community and the world the same way they hope to be treated.  Our goal is to come alongside parents, grandparents, and caregivers to help kids develop their faith, shining the light of Jesus for the transformation of the world.

Middle and High School Students

All middle and high school students are invited to join other youth at Grace each Wednesday evening, 5:00 - 6:15 pm and Sunday mornings 11:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. Our time together includes food, games and lesson/discussion. We pray for one another and have friendships that go beyond what school we go to, what grade we are in, whether we're a jock or a nerd and all the other labels culture puts on youth. During the summer we do fun activities with our friends at First United Methodist of St. Augustine. We occasionally go on retreats and do mission work. We learn about God's love for others and how we can be God's hands and feet in the world. If you have questions, please contact Meredith Holmes. You can also stay connected by liking our Facebook page.

    The group is reading Scripture and other resources to build community across cultural differences. We explore ways that the church has consciously and unconsciously been complicit in "isms" around race, gender, ability, age, etc and work for change at four levels (personal, interpersonal, institutional, cultural) and in three dimensions (thinking, behaving, feeling).
