Youth Ministry

Our Youth ministry, students in grades 6th – 12th, is focused on providing a space to question, learn about the ways we worship and fellowship together, and what it looks like to grow into your faith and yourself as you become a teenager into adulthood. Being a teenager is a season of incredible growth quickly and our desire is to provide various activities and opportunities to learn more about themselves and their spiritual identity.

Sunday School

Covenant focuses on helping students learn how to study the Bible independently and how to ask tough questions that as we grow we have to grapple with. Sunday School is a space for students to discuss various topics and learn how their faith is interwoven with their everyday lives. Sunday School is in the Senior High Room at 9:30 a.m.

Sunday Fellowship

After worship every Sunday we offer a youth-specific time of fellowship typically from 12 pm – 2 pm. These times of fellowship find us eating a meal together and doing a fun activity around town or in the Dallas metroplex. We balance our fellowship with service opportunities to serve alongside organizations who help our communities and world.

Wednesday Nights

Our focus on Wednesday nights is in a rotation model of fellowship, mission, and bible study. Every week the youth will focus on one of these areas of spiritual formation. Our intern, Emily O’Neil leads this time with our youth. Youth group starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Senior High Room and dinner is provided.

Camps & Special Events

It is important for our youth to not only worship and fellowship with one another, but we offer opportunities for them to learn and grow from other leaders in the Grace Presbytery and beyond. Our youth attend various weekend conferences, camps, and events throughout the year. A few conferences and camps are:

  • Youthquake (Grades 6th – 8th)
  • SHYC (High School)
  • Junior High Jubilee (Grades 6th – 8th)
  • Triennium (High School, offered every 3 years)
  • Synod (High School)

There are also various special worship services as well as leadership training or planning team opportunities for students to participate in.
