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.

 

PreK Playdate – the first Wednesday of each month (November to April)

Come in from the cold and play with us! Connect with other parents/caregivers of toddlers and preschoolers as your kids play together! Here at Grace we have indoor space with building toys, trikes, a playground and a giant slide! This event will take place the first Wednesday of each month through the winter and spring months from 9:30-11:30am. No need to register, just show up the first Wednesday of the month at 9:30 and be ready to have fun!

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.

We meet Wednesdays throughout the school year from 6:30 to 8:30 pm

We do not meet during school breaks and holidays.

 

 

On Wednesday nights, students are challenged to think beyond the Biblical stories they have learned and use the Bible as a source of Truth in their daily lives as they dig into topics relevant to their age. They also have time to have fun and build friendships through games, activities and extended small group time.
