Who We Are
We are the Student Ministry of Grace Community Church in Clarksville, TN.
We exist as a ministry for students from 6th-12th grade.
Relevant exists to help students live for what matters most,
for Real Life, which is a relationship with Jesus.
What We Believe
About Scripture /
We believe that the whole Bible is the inspired Word of God, written under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, the Bible is true, reliable, and authoritative. The Bible is the primary source for our knowledge about God and humanity.
About God /
We believe in the Trinity, that there is one God who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Son is Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin and became a man. Since conception, He has been fully God and fully man and will remain so forever.
About People /
We believe that men and women were perfectly created by God to experience rich life in relationship with Him, and obey His commands. However, all people have rebelled and fallen short of God’s intention. Therefore, men and women are all spiritually dead, subject to God’s judgment, and incapable of saving themselves.
About Salvation /
We believe that Jesus lived a perfect life and did everything we were supposed to do. Then, in obedience to the Father, He died on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for sin. Three days later He rose from the dead through the Holy Spirit’s power. We are saved, forgiven, and restored to the life God intended us by grace through faith in Jesus.
What We Value
What to Expect
In Large Group, we use games, videos, songs, and a message to help students meet with God and know Him better. We start the night with a light hearted and fun time that we call hosting time. Following host time we go into a worship and praise time that is led by our student band. Following this time we have a time of guided prayer called “Focus Time” to help students to focus on God and what His message will be teaching us that night. Lastly, we have a message delivered by an experienced adult pastor. This large group time will last about an hour. Immediately following Large Group, students will move into Small Group.
In Small Group, students will discuss how to apply the message they heard in Large Group. By connecting with spiritual friends and an adult mentor, students will be able to process questions and thoughts they have about anything going on in their life. The goal is for students to identify a next step in their walk with Jesus. Our simple goal on Wednesday nights is that students would learn something about God that changes how they live.
