Grace Church East Campus
Student -Youth Ministry       

FYI - Frontline Youth Invasion: 

Here on the Grace East Campus our Youth-Student Ministry is refered to as "FYI"  which stands for Frontline Youth Invasion.  

The motto "Teens willing to go on the frontline for Christ" personifies our goal to build a strong and active personal relationships with God within each one of our students.

FYI - Sunday Nights - 6:00 to 9:00pm: 
When our group meets on Sunday nights we spend the first hour studying God's Word.  Our studies encourage our teens to share their own personal life experiences and struggles helping them to realize how much they really do have in common with one another.  

FYI - Wednesday Nights - 6:30 to 9:00pm:
Every Wednesday night our teens get a chance to experience their very own worship service including their own band and vocalists.  There they also hear a biblical message geared specifically for them to apply to their everyday teen life.

FYI - FREE TIME - Sunday & Wednesday Nights:
In addition to the spiritual side, we also feel it is very important that we schedule in "free time" on both Sunday and Wednesday nights giving our teens an opportunity to just hang out and connect with fellow students.  They love to play different board games!  Our students are always thrilled to utilize our Grace East Campus Gymnasium for basketball, volleyball, dodge ball, etc.  

This dynamic group of teens and young leaders often make quick trips to local fast food spots, occasionally making trips to Six Flags in St. Louis, as well as local laser tag and paintball centers too! Our FYI leadership team is continually coming up with new ideas for fun activities and outtings.  Most of our teens however will tell you that the "pinnacle event" is the annual week long Retreat in Florida.
