Sunday School 

Each Sunday morning, 6-8th grade students and high school students gather by grade for a hybrid of Bible-based teaching and small group time with adult leaders who love and care for our students.

Life Groups

Life groups are a great way to get to know and connect with a smaller group of students, to connect with volunteer small group leaders and to be involved in Bible study and topical discussions relative to everyday life and issues. Life groups meet on Wednesdays and Sundays.  Contact Lucy for life group information.

Mission Activities—Grace Soup Kitchen, OMP, VBS

We recognize that a huge element of student’s faith is “getting their hands dirty,” using the gifts that God has given him/her to share God’s love with others.  Gravity offers a variety of opportunities: 

  • Turkey Bowl
  • High School Mission Trip to Costa Rica
  • Ozark Mission Project
  • Crew leader at Vacation Bible School


Confirmation is a time where students are given the opportunity to grow in faith together with a mentor and ultimately confirm their own faith before God and their church community. Gravity offers one session of Confirmation each school year for students 8th grade and above, running winter through mid-spring.  Registration is required for Confirmation; please contact Lucy for more information.
