CHILDREN'S Ministries

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 8:15, 9:45, 11:15 A.M. or 6:00 P.M. 

8:15 A.M. SERVICE - We have a breakfast room (room 200) in the upstairs preschool wing for children through early elementary. Your children will enjoy cereal and a time of Bible teaching and games. Our nursery staff at this service is on call to care for your infant. Check in with the breakfast room staff if you need this service.

9:45 A.M. (and) 11:15 A.M. - There are classes for infants through 6th grade. UPSTAIRS: We hold classes for babies through kindergarten ages. DOWNSTAIRS: We have classes first through sixth grade (Club 56 meets at 9:45 A.M.).

6:00 P.M. SERVICE - 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 room 203. 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.
