A look at Student Life at Grace Church . . . includes our ReVive Student Ministry (Grades 7th thru 12th) and our Mission 1825 College and Career Ministry (Mostly singles, ages 18 thru 25).

Both of these ministries meet in Area 3:16. What is Area 3:16?  It is the name of our student room, taken from the truth of John 3:16 found in the Bible, that God loved the world so much that He would actually give His Son to die for humanity and that those who believe in Him will have eternal life in Heaven.  The name also comes from 2 Timothy 3:16 which says “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”  This is our belief and our focus.

Area 3:16 is a place where God’s Son, Jesus, is praised and worshipped by young and old and His eternal Truths are shared, celebrated, and applied.  Area 3:16 is unlike most student rooms in its multipurpose design.  It accommodates a stage for live worship, comfortable seating for large group events, and a unique and quiet space to communicate with God, aka “The Prayer Corner”.  In addition, it is equipped with a “living room”-type setting for small groups and a café-like setting for the times when food is a part of the fellowship agenda.

Room Location

Area 3:16 is located in the lower level of Grace Church, between MainStreet (children’s ministry) and the church staff offices.  Look for the Area 3:16 graphic on the wall and the ramp up to the main entrance door to Area 3:16.

Group Encounter

Our group encounter provides a high-energy, live-band worship opportunity with Christ as the focus.  Within the group encounter is a teaching time dedicated to spotlighting Biblical truths and applying them to the challenges teens & young adults face in today’s world.

 Life Groups

Our life groups provide a forum for “real” relationship development to occur--an opportunity to discuss important life issues with each other while allowing for spiritual accountability with older, more mature Christians.  Biblical truths and principles are applied in a sensitive, caring environment.
