**WE ARE MEETING AGAIN IN PERSON ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS 6:30PM AT CHURCH. NO SUNDAY MORNING MEETINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.**
For GCO ministries - any group event on or off campus that it is led by a GCO approved leader - our Sunday morning guidelines (here) are applicable. We ask everyone attending to abide by the guidelines as a matter of our mutual worship, fellowship, and witness. It is an expression of our love for Jesus and mutual submission to one another, for the sake of our testimony to an unbelieving world, and in obedience to the biblical command to honor and be subject to those whom God Almighty has appointed. As your elders, we believe this is the best course for us to take as a church at this moment, and if we get to the point where we think we need to apply Acts 5:29, we will let you know.
Park Day! The Jr. High Park Day is this Saturday, September 26th, from 10AM to 1PM at Grijalva Park in Orange. Lunch will be provided. Jr. Highers should wear clothes to run around in!
If you would like more information about the Jr. High Group or upcoming events, contact Andrew via email or phone 714-633-8867 x223
The goal of student ministries is to follow Grace Church of Orange in its goal to be a Christ-centered community intent on proclaiming the gospel, making disciples, and sacrificially serving Jesus. We value Biblical teaching that aims to lead to worship, prayer, and obedience. We want students to have hearts that have been transformed by the gospel and are filled with love for God and joy in Christ.
Through both discipleship groups and growing relationships between one another, we hope that each student develops rich and intimate friendships, enjoying the unity of the Spirit within the body of Christ. Additionally, we emphasize service and care for others at home, at church, and in the community.
In all of this, we desire to continue to affirm the role of parents as the primary teachers in the lives of their children and to support and equip them as spiritual leaders in the home.
-- Andrew McNeill, Associate Pastor
