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. In Large Group, 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.

For a student to become a well-rounded & emotionally healthy adult, it is stated that they need five mentors and/or positive influences in his/her life. Each Senior in the Class of 2019 will choose five adults who have had a positive influence on their lives to invite to this lunch celebration. These could be (but are not limited to) parents, small group leaders, teachers, coaches, etc. This meal is designed primarily to say thank you to and to honor these people of influence in our students’ lives.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
We will honor our Senior Graduates and commission them into the next stage of their lives during both services on Sunday, May 19th. We will also have a Senior Gallery that day in the GPC Art Gallery to celebrate these graduates, along with a reception with cake and light snacks from 12:00-12:30pm for graduates and their families. Bring your cameras – this will be a cool display of our graduates and will provide a great photo opportunity!
We’d love to have you! See our different volunteer opportunities below! Contact Erica@gracepointchurch.net to get plugged in!
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.
