GraceYouth is the student ministry of Grace Church. We are committed to creating exciting environments where students can learn about Jesus and build life-giving relationships with their peers and caring adults.

Our vision is to equip young people to make and be fully devoted followers of Jesus. We do this through two ministries:

GraceYouth Life Groups

Our life groups are the core of our student ministry. Students in grades 6 through 12 gather throughout the week in homes all around Erie County. They are challenged by the Word, encouraged in their spirits and supported relationally by caring adults and other peers. Get connected to one today!

The Exchange

The goal of The Exchange is to create a place like no other for young people in our area. We invite students of all backgrounds and stories to bring their drama, their stress, their worry and walk away with hope, with life, and the knowledge that there is a God who loves them and is for them. All are welcome. The Exchange is common ground for all.

Beginning September 2, The Exchange happens the first Tuesday of every month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at our Grace McKean site. We offer shuttle services from Harbor Creek High School and Girard High School at 6:00 p.m.

A Word to Parents

  • Parents, your student’s safety is incredibly important to us.  Our amazing teams of leaders and volunteers have successfully gone through an application, interview, and background screening process.  
  • GraceYouth volunteers are top notch.  Passionate and dedicated adults are ready to come alongside every student that walks through our doors.  Our volunteers lead student small groups, lead worship, and work to create an all-around fun experience for students.  Think you’ve got what it takes to join our team?  We have a place for you! Contact us today.
