We are passionate about seeing our children grow in their faith. And yes, we intentionally say “our” children - because that’s what we believe. Church is supposed to be like a family, where every one of us is seeking to nurture and care for the children in our community, and we take that responsibility and privilege seriously. Our desire is to minister to children and families by providing a safe and fun environment for them to learn about Jesus and grow in their faith, as well as equipping parents with the resources and support they need as they raise their kids.
Sunday Morning Nursery - Ages 0 - 3
Grace offers a nursery for all children through the age of 36 months. Our number one priority is to create a safe and nurturing environment for our young children. The nursery is staffed with a warm and caring nursery lead, who serves as the coordinator for the nursery staff and the parents. The other volunteers in the nursery are background checked, regular attenders of Grace who serve on a rotating basis.
We believe you can't start too early teaching children about God's love for them. The children will learn simple truths about God and His world as they play. They will share songs and rhymes that reinforce these concepts. They will hear a short, age-appropriate Bible story and enjoy a new craft or activity each week. A light snack will be provided.
Children's Church - Ages 3 - Grade 1
We believe that Sunday morning worship is an important part of our life as Christians, and so we work very hard to help our children participate in worship on Sunday mornings in a way which is fun, engaging, and meaningful for their growing spiritual lives. We have put together a program that will teach the children aspects of “BIG” church in a fun and lively way. Children ages 3 through 1st grade are welcome to attend. The time will be spent learning the various elements of the worship service by participating as a “little congregation” in their own worship service!
Sunday School - Ages 3 - Grade 5
We have two Children's Sunday school classes that are provided for young people age 3 - Kindergarten and 1st-5th grade. Our time together includes an age appropriate Bible study. The small group setting provides a the perfect environment for discussions and allows the children to spend time learning more about the Bible and how to use it. We enjoy the rest of our time reinforcing these principles with fun games and crafts!
Children’s Sunday School runs from 9:00 - 9:50 am, alongside youth and adult classes.
Wednesday Grace4all Kids - Ages 3 - Grade 5
It is a privilege for us to have a program geared just for our covenant children, ages 3 years through 5th grade. We trust that our Grace4all Kids will be a terrific time for your child/children. It is an intentional program dedicated to seeing children learn of God’s love for them. We seek to provide an atmosphere in which your child can grow spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.
Each week, the kids will spend time learning God’s Word in new and exciting ways that are sure to capture their attention as we continue our VBS theme from the summer! We will follow up with fun games and crafts aimed at helping the children apply the lesson personally. We will also learn songs to praise God with and enjoy delicious snacks together. The Grace4all Kids periodically share the songs they have learned as part of our Sunday worship service.
