Grace United Methodist Church

Growing Grace with Christian Love for Everyone


At Grace UMC, our children and youth have an opportunity to explore spirituality and how it compares to life outside the church. In a world where they're told that nothing is ever enough and peer pressure is fierce, they have a chance to get their head on straight, figure out where they want to go, what kind of person they want to be, and what mark they want to leave on those around them as they transition into adulthood.


They hear and discuss and dissect the kinds of stories that they will keep with them their entire lives, stories that will help them see how God makes sense, and how God's love works in the gritty world they're entering.


Grace UMC is into living our Christian beliefs, and we offer our children and youth opportunities to be involved locally, nationally, and globally.

A strong camping ministry is an important component of the Great Plains Area's commitment to develop Christian spiritual leaders. The camps are designed to provide intentional places apart to encounter God, to extend genuine Christian hospitality and community, to nurture Christian faith and discipleship, to teach creation care and appreciation, to collaborate with United Methodist churches and agencies and to inspire and equip guests to do love and justice.

There is Sunday School every Sunday, except in the summer. The youth meet every Wednesday evening. We have a children's choir.


Confirmation classes are held every year. While all members and friends of the church, no matter their age, are invited to the communion table, the two-year program helps our youth understand the basis of Methodism and the significance of the Feast as a chance to renew and reinvigorate their faith on a regular basis.
