Youth are active in our life at Grace in a variety of ways, leading music on Sundays, participating in study and art groups, serving as crew leaders for Grace Camp, directing our annual Christmas pageant, and serving as acolytes.
To be added to Grace's youth email list and receive up-to-date information about youth activities at Grace, contact Faith Dougherty, Grace’s Youth Ministry Coordinator.
Grace’s youth are especially invited to join in the following activities.
Sunday Evening Gatherings: 5 - 7pm
On the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sunday of each month, youth in grades 6-12 gather for dinner, play, discussion, and worship.
Service Sunday: 11:15am - 2pm
On the 4th Sunday of each month immediately following the 9:30am liturgy, youth in grades 6-12 complete acts of service to care for creation and our surrounding community.
Crew Leaders for Grace Camp
Youth in grades 6-12 serve as leaders for Grace’s vibrant kids summer camp at Grace.
Rising 8th graders and high schoolers lead this summer camp serving children of farmworkers in Mount Vernon, WA. During the week we join in games, activities, and reflection with neighbors in Mount Vernon. We spend evenings playing and relaxing in a rented house nearby.
Sandwiches for Seattle
Our 5th – 8th graders pack and distribute sack lunches in Seattle three to four times a year.
Acolytes serve in Grace’s Sunday morning liturgies, guiding us to listen and look for God’s spirit in our midst. Youth and children age 10 and older are welcome to join our acolyte team.
In July 2019, nine of Grace’s high schoolers embarked on a ten-day pilgrimage in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho with Bill Harper of Pilgrim Trekking and Wren Blessing. Information about next summer's pilgrimage will be forthcoming in early 2020.
