Watershed Youth: Grades 6-12
As our young people develop through their teenage years, we believe the freeing Gospel of Jesus, taught in the context of their own culture and extended through messy and caring relationships, has the power to shape each person as he or she begins to step into independence, decision making, and faith ownership. Instead of binding our young people through outward moral behavioral management, we believe the Gospel, as it roots in the heart, creates an environment for inward transformation.
Our Summer "SHEDule" (see what we did there?) has all the details for our Bible studies and special events! Grab a calendar and watch for special announcements for all the sign-ups!
Sundays: SHED 9am
All middle school and high school students are invited to join us. We meet upstairs in the youth room, 9:00am on Sundays for SHED; hang out, sing songs, short talk about Jesus.
Wednesdays: DIG 6:30pm
We meet on Wednesday evenings, 6:15pm-7:30pm, for DIG, where everybody meets upstairs then splits into small groups by grade and gender to dig through Scripture. Real. Practical. Personal.
The Watershed high school students are going to Honduras for our summer youth mission trip! Contact Greg or Bre for more details and how you can serve! We have several upcoming fundraisers planned to raise support:

Carowinds | Thursday June 14th | 7:30a-9:30p.m
This year we are taking a trip to Carowinds! Because of the nature of renting a bus and buying tickets, you MUST be signed up and paid for by May 23st--N0 exceptions! Cost is $50.
We will be leaving Grace at 7:30am and return around 9:30pm. In addition to the $50, bring money for a quick bite for dinner on the trip back. Also, you may want to bring money for a locker to store your valuables and/or to buy lunch at the park. They do allow folks to bring their own lunch but it must be explained by necessity of food allergies.
You will need to have both a Grace medical form filled out and notarized (good for a year) and a liability release form. These forms can be downloaded HERE, or they can be found in the youth room on the info tables.
The Middle School Retreat was a success!
We had a packed weekend full of food, games, swimming, swinging off ropes swings into Lake Lure, hearing the Word, singing, climbing towers, new friendships, and night game adventures. Check out the video highlights below!
