iBlast is Grace’s creative ministries team!  This group is made up of youth aging from 7th-12th grade.  Its focus is to evangelize the word of God through performance like: black-light, puppetry, music and creative movement. Practices are on Sundays from 4:00pm-6:00pm. This group is also involved in several church-wide events at Grace, participates and is host to a Creative Ministry Festival each year and puts on an annual show in January for friends, family and community members alike to enjoy!
