We offer a variety of ministries for our children and families with children.
Sundays, September through May, 10:15-11 a.m., (except on holiday weekends and when only 1 service is being held). Classes are broken into 4 year olds through 2nd grade and 3rd through 6th grade. Younger grades follow a lectionary curriculum, which follows the lessons being read in church. Each lesson includes a video, Bible reading and worksheet activity. Older grades follow a curriculum which helps pre-teens connect to God's big story, through videos, Bible readings and hands-on activities.
Elementary mentoring program. Every Wednesday night from September through May. Parents who are interested sign up their student, so that a mentor can be assigned. Buddies meet at 4:15 or 5:15 p.m. every week for 45 minutes. Buddies can work on homework, read devotionals, play games or just talk. All mentors need to be members of Grace for 6 months and have a background check.
Wednesday night Elementary faith formation and fun! Wednesday nights from 5:30–7 p.m. Time is spent sharing in reading, fellowship, prayer, service and play.
Grace participates in a free community VBS coordinated by Grace, Trinity Presbyterian, St James Episcopal and Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Children age 4 through completing 5th grade are welcome. Middle and High Schoolers are invited to volunteer.
Children under the age of 5 are welcome to use the nursery. Nursery is available every Sunday for all services and Wednesday evenings from 5:30–7:15 p.m. Pagers are used in case of emergencies.
Every Sunday, during the 11:15 a.m. worship service. Children aged 3rd grade and under are invited to participate in the Children’s Sermon. After the sermon the Bible Story Time leader escorts the group to the Library to read and discuss the lesson for the day. Snack is served and the group returns to church before Communion.
