Central - 2018

June 12th - June 15th, 2018


Parents of middle and high school students,

It is officially summer! The GCYC team and I have been dreaming and planning for your student’s summer and we are so excited to finally announce CENTRAL 2018!

What is CENTRAL?

CENTRAL is how Grace City Youth Church does summer camp! Our heart behind Central is to create the most fun and most powerful week of your student’s summer. Ever since I began doing youth ministry years ago, I have constantly seen the impact that taking the time to get away, have fun and focus on God has on students. The team and I truly believe that Central will play a role in your student’s decision to say yes to a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.

What will CENTRAL look like?

This is not your usual church camp. As the GCYC team and I were brainstorming for your student’s summer, we wanted to create the best environment for students to have fun and experience God. This led us to the decision to set aside four days for our students to enjoy summer camp!

We will be hosting Central 2018 at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida from June 12th through the 15th. Only an hour and 27 minute drive from Lakeland, your students will be staying at Eckerd College right on the beach. We will split up the days with free time, tribal war team competitions and sessions that we believe will be life changing for your student.

Who is CENTRAL for?

If your child is in middle school or high school we want them to come with us!

Why should my student attend CENTRAL?

CENTRAL is going to be a powerful week of worship and the preaching of God’s word as well as a week for fun and relaxation. Our goal at GCYC for Wednesday nights and for Central is to provide the most safe and most fun environment for students to experience God. The team and I have been praying and preparing for this summer and we truly believe that Central 2018 will leave your student encouraged and empowered.

Thank you for allowing your student to be a part of what God is doing at Grace City Youth Church! If you have any other questions about Central, please feel free to email me. We hope to see your student at Central 2018!

Thank you,

Jon Laurenzo | Youth Pastor at Grace City Church |

Grace City Kids Camp - 2018

June 20th - June 22nd, 2018


We are so excited for our 2nd annual Grace City Kids Camp. Our heart behind this camp is to create the most fun, safe, and impactful three days in your student’s summer.

This year our theme is Out of This World! We will be going on an adventure in outer space to discover how all creation tells of the glory of God! A typical day at camp will include devotions, worship, dramas, preaching, games, lunch time (Chick-Fil-A, Pizza, Subs), & a BIG EVENT (Bounce Houses, 2XFinity, Illusionist)! Your child will also be receiving a children’s life journal, a camp t-shirt, and more.
If your child is the age of five (5) through fifth (5th) grade, we would love for them to come experience what we have planned for these three days. The camp is not just for those who attend Grace City Church but for all kids that fit these criteria.

We can’t wait for camp and are expecting God to do big things in your children’s lives! It’s going to be Out of This World!

Echo Conference - 2019

February 15th - February 17th, 2019


The Bible says in Isaiah 42:12, “Make God’s glory resound; ECHO His praises from coast to coast.” Each of us carry a voice that has the ability to echo the hope of Jesus to our communities and across the world. We believe that as we gather together each year for Echo Conference God will speak to us in such a powerful way that we will then be empowered to declare His grace and goodness all the days of our lives. For 2019, the Echo Conference theme is "Let There Be Light." John 1:5 says "The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it." We are to be a light that radiates the love of Jesus. We will be encouraging and mobilizing you to be the light that this world needs!
