Our Children’s Ministry, GraceKids, exists for one purpose, to transform lives by reaching out to children and their families, assisting them in growing relationships with Christ and becoming leaders for the Kingdom. Our events, programs and Bible study curriculum align with our Core Values:
Spirituality - Provide children with an understanding of the love and sacrifice made by Jesus Christ and the unconditional love from God the Father that will encourage them to develop a lasting relationship with their heavenly father through prayer life and studying his word.
Children are welcome in any worship service at Grace. We have two services every Sunday morning at 8:30am & 11:00am. We welcome them to fully participate in the worship service if you feel more comfortable having your children with you during this time.
Our nursery is available on Sunday mornings, Wednesday nights, and for most other church activities in Room 203. It is staffed by caring adults who follow our safe sanctuary policies, undergo a background check, and are supervised by our Children's Minister and our camera system. Youth volunteers undergo training in policies and procedures, and are supervised by the adult leaders.
Children who are ready to graduate from the nursery may join Children's Church for age-appropriate worship activities to help them learn more about why and how we worship together. This is available to children through 2nd grade during the 11:00am worship service.
The west wing of our worship center has a special seating area designed for parents with young children. It has tables, rugs, and a prayer area to make children’s time in worship less constrained. We ask for parents to sit with their children, but welcome them to move around freely in this area during both worship services.
We have activity boxes for children that include colored pencils and coloring books for children that would like to sit with their parents in worship. They are on the book shelves at each of the Sanctuary entrances.
Offered at 9:45 am for infants through 4th graders.
Grace Meal or "GMeal" is our free meal for everyone from 5:30 - 6:15 pm. We invite our community to this as well. It is a great chance to meet new people and enjoy food and fellowship and share the love of Christ! We have booster seats and high chairs available for children during the meal if needed.
Grace Kids Bible Blast
From 6:15-7:30 pm, GraceKids (K through 4th grade) are invited to “Bible Blast,” which is a trivia based program geared to bring some excitement back to reading the Word of God! Children play games, learn, and earn lots of prizes! In May, the children challenge some of our GraceYouth and adults to a Bible trivia contest!
Our nursery is available on Wednesdays from 6:15-7:30pm for infants through age 5.
