The Confirmation class for 7th and 8th graders is taught by Pastor Nagle. These middle-schoolers also participate in a variety of service, social and spiritual activities.
Many of our young members are active in attending Pinecrest Youth Leadership Ministries Camp in August. http://www.pinecrestllm.org/ Grace is well represented there each year.
Our high school students also have their own Youth Group, led by an energetic and skilled team of adults, all Youth Group alumni.
Many of our young members will or have already attended the triennial ELCA Youth Gathering. Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives. In 2018 it will be held in Houston, and fundraising efforts are already underway to subsidize the travel costs for our attendees from Grace.
