Grace Community Church’s weekly program for teens, entitled the GYG (Grace Youth Gathering), is the place to be on Sunday mornings. The group, run by teens for teens, meets Sundays at 9:30 a.m. in the cafeteria of Saxe Middle School. The program provides an accepting and exciting environment for middle and high-schoolers to come together to explore deeper questions about life. A student led band provides modern music, and interactive speakers address teen-relevant topics.
“I like the GYG so much because it’s not formal. You can just come as you are and the style or worship is much different than other churches,” explains Mac Wright, a sophomore at NCHS and a GYG Student Leader. The GYG also has a podcast on iTunes, so busy students can download sessions anytime, anywhere.
The next speaker gracing the GYG on Sunday, Nov. 6 is Conor Grennan, author of the best-selling novel Little Princes and President and founder of Next Generation Nepal (NGN), a non-profit organization that reconnects trafficked children with their families. Grennan recently returned from Nepal where he visited some of the boys he knew from his past work there. Jackson Prince, a junior at St. Luke’s School, accompanied Grennan on the Nepal trip and will also share what he learned when the GYG meets on Nov. 6.
Grace Community Church’s Sunday service is at 9:30 a.m. at Saxe Middle School. Coffee and bagels are available at 9:00am in the lobby, and nursery care is available for babies through 3 years. For more information click here.
