Grace Kids Ministries

We believe that every kid is made in the image of God, and because of that they can learn to love God with their heart, soul, and strength. When they trust Jesus it leads to a better future!

We don’t want to miss any opportunity to share the love of Jesus to our kids as we EMBRACE the physical needs of our preschoolers and ENGAGE the interstates in our Elementary kids.  These years are the most foundational for their faith. Our goal is to partner with parents and families to help raise up a generation of kids that love Jesus, love people, and love themselves.

Elementary

(1st Grade – 6th Grade)

We strive to engage kids to trust God’s character and experience God’s family through kids church. We focus on teaching 3 basic truths; I should treat others the way I want to be treated, I need to make the wise choice, and I can trust God no matter what.

Lower Elementary (1st – 3rd Grade) During kids church your child will worship, open their Bible and learn about a Bible story. They can also give an offering, play games, interact with awesome leaders, and then break off into Small Groups (SG). We believe that spiritual formation happens best in the context of relationships. During SG time, your student will interact with the Bible story and memory verse by playing games, working puzzles, and talking about the Bottom Line of each lesson with their peers and leaders. 

Upper Elementary FUSE (4th – 6th Grade) FUSE kids church is designed with the Pre-teen in mind. In FUSE kids will worship, open their Bible and learn a new Bible story, give offering, play games, interact with awesome leaders, and then break off into Small Groups (SG). We believe that spiritual formation happens best in the context of relationships. During SG time, your student will interact with the Bible story and memory verse by having discussions with their small group leader.

 

Kids church is offered at 9 am and 11 am. 

Preschool

(2 yrs old – Kindergarten)

We love your preschooler! Our caring and loving volunteers are ready to welcome your child to church. We embrace their needs through age-appropriate lessons where they can meet God’s family and know God’s love. 

Before your child heads to 1st grade, it is our goal that they will see the church as safe and loving as well as know “God loves me, God made me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever!” 

 

Preschool services are offered at 9am and 11am.

Nursery

(Birth – 23 months)

Our nursery serves our littlest family members. During service your child will experience play time with others their age and will receive focused care and attention from other leaders.  Our nursery is safe, well-sanitized, and well-stocked with toys and activities to keep your kiddos engaged.

 

The nursery is open for 9am and 11am services.

Kids

We are committed to partnering with families to help the spiritual growth of our children. We believe grown-ups should have a great experience in their service while our kids have an age-appropriate, excellent experience in their own.

Junior High

Jr High is designed to help 7th and 8th grade students build relationships and strengthen their faith. At this stage in their lives, students are starting to own their faith and wrestle with what it actually means to follow Jesus. They are also looking for stable friendships with peers and leaders that they can trust.

High School

The High School Group exists to help high school students build deeper relationships with God, each other, their families, and their community. The high school years hold many important character-shaping moments and students are asking “who am I” and “what will I do?” They are also looking for stable friendships with peers and leaders that they can trust.

Spiritual Life

Spiritual Growth is marked by ups and downs; times of nearness and times of distance from God. Every step of the way God is inviting us to seek Him in our inner being where we discover who we are in Christ. What’s God inviting you to?Let us help you take your next step. Donna Cooper
