Gravity Youth Ministry


….being rooted and grounded in love….

What it’s About

Middle School and High School students have a place to call their own. Students are challenged and encouraged through relevant teaching and fun events, and opportunities are provided for them to grow as they connect with God and with each other.

Teens have a lot of questions. What am I going to do after high school? How can I get along with my parents? The Gravity experience is specifically designed for students to explore a relationship with Jesus in language they can understand and ask these questions.  It is a excellent place to hang out every weekend with their friends in a tricked-out room. They’ll be encouraged to build relationships with their peers through small groups, and explore a meaningful relationship with Christ.

What to Expect

Where to Meet
