Kids and Students - Grace Church

COVID-19 Update – All GraceKids programming is going hybrid as of November 1, 2020.

We have created several fun and active options to help you disciple your children.

Please feel free to use whichever options fit your schedule and capacity. 

 

  • Beginning November 1, during our 9 am service hour, GraceKids (infants through 5th grade) will be offered at our Roseville campus.  Please preregister here to help us prepare for you.  

 

  • Weekly Jesus-centered online videos from our friends at Up Street and Waumba Land. Click on the link below.

 

  • Monthly activity boxes: delivered during the last week of each month. Super fun-filled boxes that go along with the online videos. Use with your family or at the GraceKids K5 Gathering. To make sure you are on our list to receive a box, please click here. 

 

  • GraceKids K5 Gathering Online: Sundays from 9:45-10:30am. Over a video conference medium, watch the online videos and then do small group activities “side by side” with GraceKids leaders & friends.  Request your link here.  Contact Tracey.  

 

  • EDGE (4th & 5th grade only): Wednesdays from 6:30-8pm. Over a video conference medium, join an interest “club” and then participate in a tween small group Bible study. Request your link here.  Contact Tracey. 
Welcome to GraceKids! We are excited to partner with you in your child’s spiritual formation and growth.

GraceKids ministry encourages infants-5th graders to explore faith and learn how to live it out every day! Kids hear God’s Story, discover their place in God’s plan and grow towards a personal relationship with Jesus.

We provide safe, engaging environments – just right for each age! GraceKids volunteers have gone through an application and interview process as well as thorough background checks. We also have a computerized check-in system, so you can relax during the worship service knowing your child is in a secure and caring environment. If your child needs you during the service, we will send you a text on your cell phone alerting you. After the service, volunteers will match your child’s name tag with the security tag you were given at check-in. Due to the Covid-19 situation, we will not be offering GraceKids programming in the building until further notice. We are making plans to gather as soon as we can provide a safe environment!

 

Have questions? Contact our Children’s Director, Tracey Peterson, and she’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

INFANTS AND TODDLERS

Nursery (Birth to 2 ½ years)

Our nursery is an environment designed specifically for our youngest children, where they can discover God’s love in a safe place through the care of our volunteers, Bible stories and interactive play with friends.

Nursery will be offered during the 9am worship service beginning on Sunday, November 1st.   We provide a clean and safe setting which follows all of the MDH Covid-19 guidelines .

PRE-SCHOOLERS

Preschool (2½ years through PreK)

Kids begin to discover where they fit into God’s big plan for them. We provide a hybrid environment for preschoolers to enjoy interactive Bible stories and engaging musical worship. Kids also experience small group connection and hands-on activities designed for each age level.  They may participate in person or via zoom during their class hour. 

Preschool programming will be offered during the 9am worship service beginning on November 1st.  We are following the MDH Covid-19 guidelines for cleanliness and safety to protect our children.

GRADES K – 3

Grade School (Grades K – 3)

Kids in grades K-3 gather together in a new hybrid environment for games and interactive worship. Kids will have a small group experience (developed by age and gender) where they have the opportunity to make friends, ask questions and engage in God’s Word. Small group leaders challenge them to apply what they are learning and to grow towards a personal faith and relationship with Jesus. We offer both in person and zoom meeting options on Sunday morning. 

Elementary programming will be offered during the 9am worship service beginning on Sunday, November 1st.  We miss you and have made plans to be together in a clean and safe environment for everyone.  Our plans incorporate all of the MDH Covid-19 guidelines.
