Nextgen ministry at Graceway exists to lead students and young adults to become planted and thriving in the local church. Graceway offers several environments for students including a weekly age-appropriate service, Sunday small group, and outreach events. Our purpose in these environments is to help students know and enjoy God, find friends, discover their purpose, and make a difference.

Our Next Series

For thousands of years, the identity of Jesus has been widely debated. But what if we could imagine for a moment that the story is true; that God became human in the form of a man named Jesus. We could learn a lot about who God is by watching Jesus. Join us for this series as we discover who “Jesus Is.”

Week 1 – Personal (Zaccheaus Luke 19:1-9)
Week 2 – Forgiving (Adulterous Woman John 8:1-11)
Week 3 – Healer (Issue of Blood Matthew 9:18-26)
Week 4 – Savior (One borne of four Mark 2:1-2)
