  Youth Ministry


Grace UCC has an active youth fellowship led by Kelly and Mike Cooper.

 

Mission Statement:
Our mission is to empower the youth to become stronger
in their faith, friendships, and self-development.

 

Goals: 

v     Provide opportunities to strengthen spiritual growth. 

v     Mentor and help guide youth into positive decision-making skills.           

v     Provide opportunities to develop positive interpersonal relationships
among peers.
 

v     Provide positive atmosphere with fun activities. 

Grace UCC Youth Fellowship (grades 6 through 12) meets twice a month to study "Revolution 2, a Bible Study for Teens." 

Fun Outings are held every other month and have included:

v     Weekend Retreat in the Fall

v     Tubing at White Tail

v     Laser Bowling

v     Sleep Over at the church

v     Haunted House at Halloween

v     Christmas Party

v     Pottery by Me--making their own pottery

v     Hiking

v     Fishing

v     Family Day in the Spring

v     Ropes course at Cove Valley Christian Youth Camp, and Picnic

 

The youth have one or two fund raisers a year. Proceeds from fundraisers
help finance activities and allowed them to do out-reach activities, such as:

v     Giving a sizeable donation to the Homeless Shelter in Chambersburg

v     Wrapping shoeboxes for "Operation Christmas Child"

v     Participating in a Habitat for Humanity project

v     Making inspirational bracelets and sending them to youth
victims of Hurricane Katrina
