During a student’s adolescent/teenage years, many lifelong decisions are made and patterns developed. It’s critical for both their present and future that they’re grounded in the Word of God, develop deep and God-honoring friendships, be discipled by caring adult mentors, and have opportunities to stretch their faith while growing deep roots in the body of Christ. Grace Student Ministries comes alongside students and their parents to help them develop into devoted followers of Jesus.

Middle School (Fifty6 and Seventy8)

Grace Students Middle School is for all students in Grades 5–8. Our ministry consists of two programs: Fifty6 (for students in Grades 5 and 6) and Seventy8 (for students in Grades 7 and 8). These age-specific programs allow students to gather with their peers to be engaged in Biblical topics and discussions that are customized for where they are in their spiritual walks. Grace Students Middle School times are designed to be energetic, fun, and relational as we tackle real-life issues and discover what God’s Word has to say through strong, biblical teaching.

The Fifty6 and Seventy8 programs utilize a mix of large and small group times during weekly gatherings. There are also many other events for students offered periodically throughout the school year and during summer.

High School (Grades 9–12)

Grace Students High School is for all students in Grades 9–12. The High School ministry at Grace Polaris is designed to challenge students to go deep in their faith and grow in relationship with one another as they pursue Jesus. Our main gathering on Sunday evenings from 6:30–8:30pm at the Youth Center. We have “BIG” nights and “small” nights. We believe that passion and momentum are built through BIG gatherings as students worship and learn together, but we very much value the everyday growth and life that happens through the small gathering. High School BIG will meet periodically to be challenged and to celebrate, whereas High School small will gather consistently to experience life together through Grace Groups.
