Welcome to Grace Student Ministries. Let us say, first of all, we love students!

We view students as uniquely created and gifted individuals who are loved by God. It’s our desire, and our mission, to see young people become life-long students who are ever-seeking and ever-discovering the glory of God, His heart, His will, and His ways. And, their own place and role in His eternal kingdom.

Grace Student Ministries operates as a leadership umbrella for the Middle School (LUG), High School (TrueNorth) and College (college@grace) ministries of Grace Snellville, and as a leadership resource for other Grace Fellowship Church campuses. We also operate as a liaison to school campus ministries and movements along with other student-focused or student-led organizations. We partner with parents and others who are interested in investing in the lives of students and we feel that communication is vital to functioning as a healthy, effective team.

Grace’s middle school ministry, called LUG (short for Living Under Grace), is home to hundreds of middle school students and a whole host of caring volunteers. The major LUG gatherings are LUG AM on Sundays at 9:00 am (year-round) and LUG Live on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm (school year schedule).


Sundays at 9am in the Middle School room, downstairs main building. LUG AM focuses primarily on teaching and worship while LUG Live on Wednesdays is centered around small group Bible studies and interaction.


Wednesdays, 6-8pm during the school year. LUG Live is centered around small group Bible studies and interaction. Each of these small LUG groups include a handful or two of students who are led by a LUG Head (a high schooler) and overseen by a parent volunteer. The Wednesday gatherings also mix in a bit of middle school fun and offer kids an opportunity to worship God together as a large group with 500-1000 fellow students. And that’s just for starters. There’s a lot more going on with LUG and we hope you’ll check it out.
