GREFC Student Ministries
As kids enter the teen years, it is important for them to have a place where they feel they belong and where they can grow in their faith with like-minded peers. It’s also really important to have trusted Godly adults that they can depend on to guide them in their faith.
We strongly encourage parental involvement in all aspects of a student’s faith journey. We strive to help parents and teens navigate this stage of life along side one another by regularly involving parents in youth activities and meetings and using technology to keep communication open.
BRICK Bible Foundations Class
Sundays | 9:00 am | school year only | Grades 6 & 7
The goal of the BRICK Bible Foundations Class is to help 6th & 7th grade students develop a greater understanding of the “big picture” of God’s story. Students follow this program for two years, one year focusing on the Old Testament and one year focusing on the New Testament. The class starts promptly at 9:00 am.
Jr. High Youth Group
Sundays | 6:00-8:00 pm | Grades 6-8
While we love it that students have fun playing games and hanging with their friends, Wednesday nights mainly focus on what it means to be a disciple maker, who God really is, what the Bible teaches and how to follow Jesus no matter what the cost.

Sr. High Youth Group
Sundays | 6:00-8:00 pm | Grades 9-12
Older students are ready to dive into deep discussions about living life with a Biblical perspective as a student. We strive to value relationships, the truth of the Bible, safe peer groups and disciple making.
Kevin & Angie Geisler serve as the Sr. High point of contact. Kevin or Angie can field questions from students and parents about anything related to Infuse ministry. Kevin and Angie serve with a group of others to lead the Sr. High ministry.
Large Group Events
Throughout the year, we host several large group events where both Jr. High & Sr. High students can participate together and have a lot of fun. Some events we’ve had include: Nerf War, Summer Blast Party, BBQ Kickoff, sledding, ice skating and bonfires.
Students are also encouraged to serve in church and in their community on a regular basis. We provide opportunities throughout the year for students to serve those in our congregation and community.
