Youth Ministry at Grantham Church

We believe in Youth Ministry!

It is our intention to take students deep and wide by KNOWING God through a personal relationship, helping them OWN their faith through a holistic-discipleship process, and challenge them to make their faith KNOWN to their friends and on their school campuses.


In Youth Ministry this year, we are going to explore the many doors we see throughout the Bible…some opened, some closed, many representing new opportunities, salvation, The Way…


Join us for….


SUNDAYS @ 9AM-10AM in C15 (Youth Room)

Sunday mornings in Learning Community, we meet over hot cocoa and occasional snacks for discussion and prayer.


SUNDAYS @ 6PM–8PM | C15 (Youth Room)

Sunday evenings in Youth Group, we meet for lessons, games, snacks, and small group discussions.



Every other month, or so, we have dinner with a small group of “non youth” members of the greater church body.  We get to know each other over a shared three course meal and games!

Serve with us at Grantham!
  • Leadership opportunities are available for teens during the worship service to help oversee the care and teaching of children pre-K to 5th grade.
  • The first Thursday of each month we gather  to set up for Friday morning’s Sing & Play.
  • Throughout the year, we have opportunities to serve outside our church at either Paxton Ministries in Harrisburg or One80 Ministries in Mechanicsburg.
  • SUMMER ’24 we have two opportunities to serve beyond Harrisburg:
    • Through BIC World Missions, families can serve in Dearborn, MI helping with a school prep day camp.
    • Through Camp Hebron 16:14 Missions, youth can serve the greater Harrisburg area in a variety of (yet to be determined) ways.

For more information on any way to serve, please contact Chrissy Hoffner, Youth Coordinator.


Youth Ministry makes a difference. 15 years ago, statistics showed that Christian youth stayed in school longer, were healthier, felt better about themselves, were more likely to volunteer their time to help others, and had better relationships with their parents.  Statistics today show that nearly six in ten (59%) young people who grow up in Christian churches end up walking away. We need to build relationships with the teens to help them understand and own their faith.

Do YOU want to make a difference in the life of a teen?
