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:
  • God uniquely created each child and meets them where they are, kids are given creative and varied opportunities each week to connect with and know Jesus.

  • Spiritual growth happens in community, kids connect and build friendships with their peers and a small group leader in age and gender based small groups.

  • Parents are the primary influence in a child’s spiritual development, we provide resources to help equip them to guide and lead their child’s spiritual formation.

  • Kids are world-changers for Christ, they learn how to share their faith and engage in their greater community and world through acts of service.


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.


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.


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.

Our small group leaders are trained to provide a safe and caring environment for all students. Small groups are organized by grade and gender. We also plan service projects, retreats, game nights, concerts, and mission trips for students throughout the year which are designed to build relationships and move them towards responding to God in their lives.
