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. View the Fuse 2015-2016 calendar.
