Children's Ministry

Header Image

Welcome to Grace's children's ministries!  Here at Grace it is our goal to provide a safe environment where your child will experience the love of Jesus Christ.  Our greatest desire is to reach your child's heart and challenge him or her (at an age appropriate level) to begin the formation of a strong personal relationship with the Lord.

Sunday Mornings

Infants-Age 4: Welcome to Kids Korner: a secure, bright and cheery wing at Grace ready for your child!  On Sunday morning you will be checking in with our staff at the check-in window.  For security reasons all children who are dropped off need to fill out a registration form.  Kids Korner is a secure zone.  Children receive name tags with allergy notes, and parents will receive a pick-up tag to pick up children after the service.  Check-in enables a text messaging system, so that if your child needs you during the service, we can send you a text.  (Pagers are also available.)  To fill out the registration form ahead of time click hereKids Korner is divided into three sections.  The nursery, toddler/play area, and a classroom. Children ages 2 and up will have time for play, story, snacks, and craft.

During the 9:15 AM service,  4 year-olds are encouraged to attend the first part of the worship service in the sanctuary and then go to a special children's worship after the offering.  4 year-olds can attend a Sunday School Class just for them at the Kids Korner during the 11:00 AM service (September-May).

Elementary Aged Children  (K-6th grade). During the 9:15 AM service elementary-aged children attend the first part of the worship service in the sanctuary.  After the offering, children (ages 4-4th grade) attend a special children's worship service which is held in a classroom in the North wing of the building.  Here they sing songs, learn about elements of worship, and have a Bible lesson especially geared to elementary-aged kids.

Sunday School (September-May) is at 11:00 AM upstairs in the North Building.  Parents check in their children with Sue Brown.  Here your child will experience a personal journey through biblical teaching with other children of the same age.

Through the Week

TeamKID (Kids in Discipleship) meets Wednesdays through the school year from 5:30-7:30 PM (with supper provided). The evening includes more discipleship opportunities, fun, games, crafts, etc.

Your child is also welcome to attend our monthly event called Fabulous Friday for children in grades 1 - 6.  Usually held on the first Friday of the month from 7-8:30 PM, the children have a wonderful time playing games like hide-and-seek, listening to devotions, having snack, and singing songs.  We encourage Grace attenders to bring neighbors to this exciting event as part of our outreach.  Don't miss our theme nights like our Carnival in December, Pie Eating Contest in May and Water Fun in June.

And then there's Story Hour, a time for stories, songs, crafts and snacks for toddlers and pre-school kids and their parents. Story Hour is typically held the first Thursday of the month from 10:00-11:00 AM.
