Grace Kids is our programming for infants to 5th graders, led by a team of staff and volunteers passionate about teaching kids the Gospel. Our goal is to provide a safe, warm, and interactive environment where kids can grow in their relationship with Jesus and in community with others. We aim to walk alongside parents in growing their kids into followers of Jesus.
We hope that you and your kids will come and join us on Sundays! When you arrive, please visit the check-in desk to register your children and find out about all the fun activities going on.
(UPDATE: Please note that all in-person children’s ministry events have been suspended due to the coronavirus. Childcare is also not provided for in-person service. We welcome your children to join us for Grace Kids Online Kids Church!)
PROGRAMS ON SUNDAYS
Nursery (0 to 3-years-old)
The Grace Kids nursery program serves children birth through three years old. During the service, your child will experience fun learning activities and cooperative play with other children. Our professional childcare staff and caring volunteers ensure your child is nurtured and well-cared for during their time at church. During the Sunday school hour at 10:00 am, the two- and three-year-olds will have their own Sunday school class full of songs and engaging activities teaching them more about Jesus!
Pre-School & Elementary (4-years-old to 5th graders)
Our Preschool and Elementary program serves four-year-olds to 5th graders. Programs include:
KIDS CLUB (during 8:30 & 11:15 am services for pre-K to 3rd-graders)
Your children will worship alongside you during the first part of each worship service. Right before the sermon, they will be dismissed to Kids Club, where they’ll sing, hear Gospel-centered Bible stories, play games, and do crafts that teach them about Jesus.
BRIDGE (during 8:30 am service for 4th & 5th-graders)
Kids are invited to attend “The Bridge,” designed to build community and an increased love for Jesus among our older elementary school kids. This is done by engaging ice breakers, focused instruction, and lots of time to discuss how to practically live out the Gospel. Bridge kids also take part in doing service projects together.
SUNDAY SCHOOL (10 – 11 am for pre-K to 5th-graders)
Through the Gospel Project curriculum, we teach the Bible in ways that always point to Jesus. Kids watch creative Bible stories, learn verses, and engage in games and activities that help them to learn about Jesus at their level. Our 5th-graders take a more discussion-based approach, where they can feel safe asking questions and building community as they grow in the Gospel together.
