Join us and register for LUG Live CLICK HERE!


LUG, Grace’s middle school ministry, stands for Living Under Grace and meets year-round on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM and during the school year on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM. Our energetic Wednesday evening gatherings begin with games, worship and teaching, but are focused on discipleship. After worship and teaching, the students spend time in LUG groups. Each LUG group is led by LUG heads (high school student leaders) and overseen by a LUG adult (parent volunteer). The LUG group time is centered on Bible study and small group discussion. Life-changing community develops from these LUG groups, and we hope that you will check it out!

This semester, LUG students will be taught on a series called “I Am,” which is focused on the Book of John. In this series, we will study the statements that Jesus made about Himself! We encourage students to         come ready with their journal and Bible.
