Kids and Students - Grace Church
Welcome to Grace Kids! We are excited to partner with you in your child’s spiritual formation and growth.

Grace Kids 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! Grace Kids 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.

 

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

 

Because We Believe:
  • We are passionate about cultivating life-long Jesus followers.

  • We honor and equip parents to spiritually lead their family.

  • We empower couples to build thriving marriages that reflect the Gospel.

  • We provide safe and engaging environments for children and students.

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 offered during all weekend services.

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 offered during all weekend services.

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 offered during all weekend services.
