At Grace we value children and families. The Children’s Ministries team of staff and volunteers do everything in their power to make sure that each child is cared for in every way possible. We want you as a parent to know that we want your child to have a great experience here at church that is geared to his/her individual age and interest. In all we do, our vision remains to raise up generations of families that are built to last!

There are several components we are committed to in everything we do in Children’s Ministries:
SUNDAY EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR KIDS:
Every Sunday we offer a complete children’s program. We invite you to stop in and see what we are about at 9:30 A.M. in Netcong, 10:30 A.M. in Randolph, 11:30 A.M. in Netcong or 6:00 P.M in Netcong.
9:30 A.M. & 11:30 A.M. (Netcong) - There are classes for infants through 6th grade. Club 56 meets only at 9:30 A.M. ( through June 30, 2019)
10:30 A.M. (Bethlehem/Randolph) - There are classes for infants through 5th grade.
6:00 P.M. (Netcong) - We have classes for infants through 4th grade. All of the classes meet in the children's wing upstairs.
DURING ALL SERVICES - We have a mother's room upstairs in Netcong, Room 203 or the Cry Room in the Sanctuary at Bethlehem/Randolph. If your child needs to be nursed, changed, or is fussy, you can take care of their needs in this room and still hear the service.
We hope you enjoy your time with us and feel like part of our family.
