Grace Kids

Our Children’s Ministry, Kingdom Kids, exists for one purpose, to transform lives by reaching out to children and their families, assisting them in growing relationships with Christ and becoming leaders for the Kingdom. Our events, programs and Bible study curriculum align with our Core Values:

 

 

Spirituality - Provide children with an understanding of the love and sacrifice made by Jesus Christ and the unconditional love from God the Father that will encourage them to develop a lasting relationship with their heavenly father through prayer life and studying his word.  

Education - Establish a caring and accepting environment for kids to learn about God’s word through Bible study and life lessons.

Love - Providing a loving environment where children feel accepted and comfortable.

Character - Teach children to live by the “Golden Rule” and strive to do right when no one is looking, with honorable character.  Such character values would include Respect, Obedience, Dilligence, Wisdom, Kindness, Self-Control, Orderliness, Service, Attentiveness, Cooperation, Courage, Honesty, Forgiveness and Responsibility.

Motivation - Encourage children to continue in their spiritual walk by providing educational activities that are exciting and challenging. 

Outreach - Promote the concepts taught in the classroom by offering opportunities for children to become the hands and feet of Jesus through mission work.

 

Sunday Mornings

Worship Services

Children are welcome in any worship service at Grace. We have two services every Sunday morning at 9:00 am Traditional Style Worship and 11:00 am Contemporary Style Worship.

Children's Church

Children who are ready to graduate from the nursery may join a full hour of age-appropriate worship activities to help them learn more about why and how we worship together.  This is available to children through first grade during both worship services.

 

PrayGround  

The west wing of our worship center has a specially designed seating area designed for parents with young children through first grade.  It has tables, rugs, and a prayer area to make children’s time in worship less constrained.  We ask for parents to sit with their children, but welcome them to move around freely in this area during both worship services.

We have activity boxes for children that include colored pencils and coloring books for children that would like to sit with their parents in worship.  They are on the book shelves at each of the entrances.
