Granger High School
Students will not meet on April 2.
PARENTS: We will be starting a series in March on the topic of sex. Please read this parent letter for more details and information.
Series: How far?
Sex. Everyone has thoughts and opinions about this topic. Culture, parents, media, friends, biology class. But sex is not merely a reproductive function of the human race, sex is designed by God for us as a gift! In this series we’ll talk about God’s design for our sexuality and some of the biggest struggles and temptations we face. We will also devote time to answering students’ specific questions about this topic. In the last week of the series we’ll look together at how we can take steps to honor God with our sexuality so we can live with freedom and purity—not regrets and shame.
This isn’t some boring Bible study. Our band is phenomenal, our video is top notch and the energy is intense. Your student will experience a real message, engage in fun activities, and learn things that will change her life.
Students, grades 9–12

The High School Weekly Gathering is a can’t-miss experience that takes place on Sunday evenings during the school year. Although GSM is more than what happens during a service on a Sunday, it’s still a big part of it. Here is a little bit of what we do:
- We EXPLORE: We aren’t afraid to dive into the messiness of life as we seek the fullness of life Jesus offered. We create safe environments where we can speak openly and honestly; not just about our fears and doubts, but our hopes and dreams too.
- We WORSHIP: We believe that excellence honors God and inspires people. That’s why we have a phenomenal band filled with leaders and students who craft powerful experiences to help us connect with God in new and meaningful ways.
- We LEARN: Each week we look to the Bible through teaching and conversation to see how God’s story is being played out in the world around us and how we can have a role to play too. We wrestle with these truths and discover how to apply them to our homes, schools, work places, performance stages, and all of life.
- We GROUP UP: We aren’t designed to do this alone. We know we are better together, and the relationships that we surround ourselves with have the power to transform our lives. That is why every high school student is put into a smaller community of 30–40 students with a handful of adult leaders and called a cluster group. Clusters exist to help make the big room a little bit smaller, but still have the space to invite friends and get to know a wide variety of other students as we journey together. Clusters also have the opportunity meet in house groups throughout the week for deeper connection and discipleship.
And all of this is to help us take our next steps towards Christ together.
In addition to our Sunday evening gathering, High School students also meet in house groups throughout the week. Each cluster has an assigned house and night of the week, and meets from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The cluster will come together for some connection time up front, and to hear a short video or lesson before breaking up into smaller groups based on gender. Each small group is led by a background-checked and trained adult leader who also volunteers during our Sunday gatherings. House groups will have multiple sessions that take place throughout the year so students will have the opportunity to join or take breaks when their schedules allow.
