West Point Cadets

We Have Ministries and Help Just For You

Grace Community Church is home to hundreds of West Point cadets every school year, many of whom serve in ministry at Grace—in kids’ ministries, greeter/usher teams, youth ministry, on our worship teams, and more. When you attend Grace for the first time, we ask that you write CADET on the front of your Connection Card. This will help us connect with you and keep you informed of activities at Grace. Many cadets are also a part of our thriving young adults ministry, where hundreds of college students and 20-somethings engage in fellowship, worship, discipleship, and retreats together.

West Point Cadets Dinners

We Want to Give You a Hot Meal and Some Time in Worship

During the school year, Grace provides bus transportation to the Washingtonville campus for the Saturday 5pm service, followed by a home-cooked meal. Cadets are returned to the campus after a dinner, fun, and relaxation. The bus schedule, as follows, resumes on September 16th, 2017. Cancellations are based upon WP holidays/events and inclement weather. Cancellations are posted on Grace’s website and Facebook page:

Pick-up Location Schedule
4:00pm @ the Supe’s Box Loop by Daly Field
4:15pm @ the Prep School
Service @ 5:00pm
Dinner @ 6:30pm
Depart @ 7:15pm

Cadets looking to attend on Sundays can join the West Point Carpool Group on Facebook. Cadets driving to the Washingtonville and Newburgh campuses on Sunday often post available seats.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to connect with Executive Pastor, Adrian Schoonmaker, at Adrian.Schoonmaker@GraceOC.com. He would love to speak with you.
