Student Ministry (6th - 12 Grades)

Making Disciples that Make Disciples

Blender Family Lunch - Sunday, 9/18!

Blender families (those with students in 6th-12th grades): join us for lunch on 9/18 right after 2nd service! On our monthly lunch days we all worship together in the sanctuary at 10:30am then eat lunch together (and play games!) to get to know each other a little bit better!

Bring the whole family, and it's a great time to invite your friends!

Please RSVP to Rick Drost at [email protected]

At Grace, our Student Ministry (for kids in 6th through 12th grades) is called The Blender. Why? Read on!


In 1 Corinthians 12:24-27, Paul tells the church that "God has BLENDED together the body... Now you are Christ’s body, and each of you is a member of it." We know that students each have different gifts, strengths, frustrations, and joys. This is the reason that we are called the Blender. We are designed to be a place where students in 6th-12th grade do four things: live life together, learn about Jesus, encounter God, and serve others.

Invite Your Friends!
