A Place For Teens...
Room's 3 and 4 at Grace EPC have become synonymous with our Youth - every other Wednesday night and every Sunday afternoon, you can find students gathered together in these rooms conversing, praying, worshiping and playing. So what happens when we're no longer free to gather in that special place?
The YoG Cast has been carefully crafted and cultivated to be that place for your teens while we find ourselves in "exile" from our little YoG home. It's our attempt to "build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce" (Jeremiah 29:5) - to prosper while we wait. These short videos are intended to embrace, encourage and equip your teenagers as we expose them to Gospel truth (wait, thats our motto)... We pray that they are helpful and ultimately draw our students closer to Christ.
