We're open for in-person worship services at all locations!

Foxboro Student Ministries

Whether you’re in Foxboro or one of our other other four amazing campuses, Student Ministries is about leading students to discover and own their faith. We create environments and opportunities for middle and high school students to ask questions, be curious, explore Jesus and their faith and build meaningful relationships with one other and a group of caring adults. Our church family would be nothing without our students and we feel blessed and honored to partner with parents, families and these students in what God is doing in and through their lives. 

Every student is welcome, belongs, and matters. 

What’s Going On this Summer?

We are so excited to be relaunching in-person ministry this summer and into the fall! We are excited to see our students in person again: those we’ve only been seeing on screen, those we’ve missed this year, and those we have yet to meet! 

This summer we have events including mini golf, bumper cars, bumper boats, ice cream, fire pit nights, paint powder games and battles, a fun evening on a lake, and some slip and slide kickball. This summer is about reuniting and getting to know one another again! 

What if I’m New and Don’t Know Anyone?

Being new is super hard, but luckily, everyone who has started out with us can relate! Luckily, our summer events are super fun and focused on re-introducing people to one another after 14 months of being virtual. So, basically, it’s like everyone is new! If larger groups are intimidating (they definitely can be), that’s okay too! We can always arrange for smaller groups to meet up to go to ice cream or hang out. 

No matter what approach you take, remember… awkwardness is a guarantee BUT that doesn’t mean it’s the enemy. We embrace awkwardness! It’s kind of a fact of life and we’ve all been there! We know there’s more to people than an awkward silence. Everyone here has gifts, talents, passions, questions and all of those things are worth a few awkward moments. 

Curious about Volunteering? 

Interested in the opportunity to help us relaunch this most incredible ministry? We could really use some people who love teenagers to help us out this summer and maybe even into the fall. To learn more, go to grace.org/servenextgen. Feel free to email Blaire with any questions about being a part of FoxSM or volunteering at  .

Summer Events

As we re-launch our ministries in the summer season, we have some opportunities for Students at Grace to reconnect as we begin to meet back in person. Normal small groups on zoom will conclude at the end of May and all end of school year and summer events will take place in person at various outdoor locations depending on weather. Masks and social distancing will still be required, and we ask that you register for each summer event so that we can keep up with contact tracing if need be. Here is the summer calendar of events for FOXSM! Click on any of the buttons below to register for each event.

This game never gets old, but that doesn’t mean we can’t add a twist. We’re adding lines of tarps between bases, hosing them down, lathering them up with some free+clear laundry soap to keep you slipping, sliding, and smelling great. So, get your bathing suits and your game face because it’s about to get real, fun, & really fun.
