Avenue X Youth

Avenue X is our youth ministry at Grace Avenue, and is the place where middle and high school students (6th-12th grade) gather to experience God in a fun, life-giving environment. Our youth leaders are committed to being in the lives of your students and helping them grow in their relationship with God through various hangouts, and an annual summer camp/conference.

We are so excited to share that Avenue X is meeting every Sunday mornings to grow in their relationship with the Lord.  This will be a time where your students are prayed over, encouraged, and can develop friendships with one another, and grow in their knowledge of God’s Word.

We believe in and value our youth, and encourage all youth parents to make second service your service for your student.


Avenue X Creed

Jesus is our truth.

We love and serve the purposes of God fiercely. 

We are a reflection of who Christ is to our generation, and those who come after. 

We are builders and lovers of the local church.

We live generously; we speak and act faithfully.

We go together, because it’s His command.

And we seek holiness in an unholy world because it pleases Him. 

We are Avenue X.
