If you're in 9th through 12th grade, we would love you to join us each week as we study the Bible, build friendships and community, eat delicious food, worship, serve, play some awesome games, and hang out in Small Groups. There's a place for everyone and we hope to see you soon!

Wednesday Nights

Crave takes place in The Underground at Grace Church. Enter at Door 1 and be prepared for great night! Crave runs from 6:00 pm - 8:15 pm and includes a free meal, authentic worship, games, Biblical teaching, and Small Groups. Small Groups are open to new students year round, so feel free to join us anytime!


The Student Ministries Vision is to equip and mobilize students to serve and share Christ in this community and beyond. We want to reach, teach and unleash students by being Jesus centered, prayer focused and outreach oriented. Part of how we accomplish this is by offering a program called “Foundations” for 9th and 12th grade students. Foundations can be broken into three parts, content, involvement and trips:

  • Content – In order to learn the foundations of faith, students will attend 6 ‘Live’ sessions at Grace Church and watch a number of pre-selected messages online. Students will also be responsible for selected scripture memory over the course of the year.
    Live Sessions:
    • Sunday’s - October 1, November 12, December 3, January 7, February 4, March 4
    • Seniors 9:00-10:30am in the Underground
    • Freshman 10:45-12:15pm in the Underground

  • Involvement – Students are expected to be a part of Crave on Wednesday nights as it is our primary offering for discipleship including community and engaging, relevant teaching. One major regret of many of our seniors returning home from Israel is that they never got to know their class better prior to the trip.

  • Trips –Those who have participated in Foundations will be eligible to participate in the Foundations Trip which will be partially funded by Grace Church in the summer of 2018. Freshman get the opportunity to take a trip to the Creation Museum, Field Museum, fun in Chicago and ministry opportunities. Seniors will participate in a 10-day tour of Israel.
