Fuse (Grades 6-8)

Welcome to Fuse, the middle school ministry at Grace Church! Middle school can be a difficult and confusing time, but our goal is to provide an enjoyable and safe atmosphere where these students can be challenged, feel accepted and grow in their relationship with Christ. We do this through our onsite weekend small groups, passion-filled Big Wednesday events and life-changing retreats.

Weekend Small Groups

Small groups are a time to build relationships, be refueled and have fun. Fuse small groups meet throughout the school year during all weekend worship services (except on holiday weekends), and are separated by grade and gender. For consistency, we ask that you register and commit to a specific small group.

8th Grade Retreat: May 16-17

The 8th grade retreat is the event where we transition students off into Merge, the high school ministry at Grace. We have sessions designed to prepare students for the road ahead as well as time for playing together and connecting in small groups. Our bridge prayer experience is one that they will never forget and will be a marker moment in their spiritual journey for years to come. Parent Orientation is Sunday morning at 10:45 a.m. The students will return during this time, so we can share together what God is doing in their lives and celebrate their transition into Merge!
