Children’s Ministry At Grace

We look forward to meeting you and your children!  Our purpose is to teach children that God loves them, to help them grow in their faith, and to encourage them to serve in the church and community. It’s our hope that by equipping children with biblical truths, they will desire to be obedient to God and will have a love for Him that will remain throughout their lifetime.

At Grace we believe God gives parents the primary responsibility to facilitate the spiritual growth of their children, however we would love to partner with you on this adventure!

Wee Care

Nursery and toddler care is available for birth through four years old during both of our Sunday morning services at 8:30am and 11:00am.  Simple Bible concepts are shared with preschoolers in a loving, child friendly environment.

Registration and Security

New families are required to register their children by completing a simple form with their basic information.   All families of infants and toddlers must be signed in at the Nursery by a parent or other adult family member when being dropped off.  The safety of all the children at Grace is a priority for us.  All nursery and toddler workers are carefully screened and those who are 18 years of age or older must pass a background check.
