Youth Ministry

As an extension of the Grand Avenue Baptist Church fellowship, the youth ministry provides a time for students grades 6-12 to have fun while growing in their friendships, in their walk with Christ, and in their confidence in the hope they have in Him (1 Peter 3:15).


The heart of GABC’s ministry to youth is to support parents in reinforcing the truths of the Gospel and its application to the daily lives of the students.


In addition to special activities throughout the year, we offer two weekly meetings—Wednesday night Youth Group and Sunday morning Foundations Bible Study.


Youth Group

Youth Group (grades 6-12) meets weekly from 6:30-8:00 pm on Wednesday evenings. Youth Group includes games, snacks, fellowship, service, and interactive teaching time.


A variety of other fellowship events happen throughout the year including holiday parties, ice cream socials, and more.


Michael and Kyndal Bartels lead this Wednesday night youth group time. They have been members at GABC since 2015.


Youth Foundations

Youth (grades 6-12) are also offered a regular Sunday morning Bible study time during our Foundations hour (9:00-10:00 am).


Students work through the same passage each week as the adults in Foundations—which allows parents to facilitate some great conversations at home about the study!
