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 is usually offered during all weekend services, but will not be available until further notice due to Covid-19 concerns.

PRE-SCHOOLERS

Preschool (2½ years through PreK)

Kids begin to discover where they fit into God’s big plan for them. Preschoolers are together for large group interactive Bible stories and engaging musical worship. Kids also experience small group connection and hands-on activities designed for each age level.  

Preschool programming is usually offered during all weekend services, but will be available online only until further notice due to Covid-19 concerns.

 

GRADES K – 3

Grade School (Grades K – 3)

Kids in grades K-3 gather together for games, interactive worship and large group teaching. Kids 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.

Elementary programming is usually offered during all weekend services, but will be available online only until further notice due to the Covid-19 situation.  We miss you and are making plans to be together as soon as we can provide a safe environment for everyone.

On Wednesday nights, fourth and fifth graders and their small group leaders gather online to spend time playing games, laughing with each other and talking through an idea or section of the Bible.  All study is done together as a small group, so everyone has a chance to voice their thoughts and ideas.
