Grace Point Students exist to help students enter into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We aim to help students from northwest Arkansas (Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale, Lowell, Pea Ridge, Centerton, and Bella Vista) connect to the local Church, a.k.a. the Bride and Body of Christ, SO THAT they might know what it is to truly learn, live, and love. We would love for you to come check out GPS anytime!
FORGE meets on Wednesday Nights with both a Small Group Meeting time (broken up by gender/grade) and a Large Group Meeting time. The Large Group program really focuses on Outreach and Evangelism – with emphasis on RELATIONSHIPS and DISCIPLESHIP. We believe that getting together with 9th through 12th grade students allows us to develop community and commonality in the things of God. In Large Group time, students will experience worship, hear relevant teaching, be challenged in their walk and faith, and have an amazing time among the family of Grace Point Students. Snack Shop is open from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.; the actual gathering lasts from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
FORGE Small Groups (school year) are where a student can come and dive deeper into God’s Word, receive encouragement from Godly, loving leaders, experience accountability and support from their peers, and have an opportunity to be discipled. The Small Groups are separated out by grade and gender to allow students to experience relevant teaching and focused mentoring. Small Groups meet on Wednesday Nights from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at Grace Point Church.
FUSION & FORGE will be combined on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 8:00pm during the summer.
Dudes & Donuts/Babes & Bagels meet on summer Thursdays from 9-10:30am at GPC for breakfast and Bible study.

This is a team of adult volunteers who serve as Small Group Leaders and consistently invest in students’ lives through teaching, modeling, and encouraging.
We have a student Snack Shop on Wednesday nights where adults can work. It helps us promote fellowship and community to our students by speaking to their hearts (more like stomachs). All proceeds from this Snack Shop go to provide scholarships for students to go on missions.
These volunteers allow us as a Student Ministry Team to stay connected with the students, guests and members alike, on a weekly basis by being the keepers of attendance and making first impressions. Great smiles required.
These “techies” will devote their time and talents in the areas of lights, audio, and video on Wednesday Nights and other special events.
Come and hang out on Wednesday Nights to help us keep our students safe. While you throw around a frisbee or football, you can help us be a presence in the parking lot to keep students safe.
