Grace UMC’s college ministry is a welcoming church home for students from all over St. Louis. Our diverse group of undergrads and graduate students come from all over the world and from many different faith backgrounds. Outside of traditional worship services, we focus on involving students in small groups of bible student, book discussion, and fellowship as a way to help them develop into spiritually mature adults. Because students worship with the congregation at Grace, they have the opportunity to connect with adult mentors who are sincerely interested in their lives and well-being. There are periodic fellowship events, mission trips, and retreats. Students are fully welcomed into the church as sisters and brothers in Christ.
