Through the changes that come with school, friends, significant others and family, Granger Student Ministries (GSM) is committed to helping your student take steps toward Christ. We are also committed to partnering with parents as they raise students through this season of life. During the school year, we normally gather on Sundays and Wednesdays for fun activities, worship and Biblical teaching focused on the realities of being a teenager today. There are life group opportunities for students to gather with friends and a committed leader as they embark on their faith journey. Students also have opportunities year-round to serve with GSM, as well as other ministries of Granger Community Church. Note: GSM will not be gathering Sunday, February 6 and Wednesday, February 9 due to Winter Retreat.

DO YOU HAVE A STUDENT WITH SPECIAL NEEDS?

FAQs

Do I need to walk my student into the building to check them in?

Dropping them off outside by the cones is perfect. We have a team of volunteers that will make sure your student finds their way to Guest Services to check-in.

Do I need a pick-up tag for my student?

No, all students are dismissed at the same time and will be waiting at the curb for you to pick them up.

Who are the volunteer leaders?

Our volunteer leaders are a group of trusted adults who have applied and gone through a background check and interview process. Any students leading within GSM have also been through a semester-long leadership training and application process.

Can I volunteer?

Absolutely! Get more info here.

How is my student assigned to a Life Group?

All of our Life Groups are gender-based groups. We take into account friendships as our primary source of Life Group formation. If your student is new or is looking to make some new friends, we look at your student’s hobbies, grade and school.

Can my student bring a friend?

Definitely! Your student’s friend will be welcomed into their Life Group.
