We’re excited to offer a vibrant program that allows children to grow spiritually, emotionally, and socially while learning more about Jesus and His love for them. We strive to come alongside parents as you take the lead in the spiritual development of your children.
Throughout the year, children will get to KNOW God, learn about His LOVE, and GROW in their faith. Our hope is to equip and encourage parents by providing opportunities to help your family grow in your faith, and our prayer is that every child comes to know Christ and develop a meaningful and active relationship with Him.
For 2019-2020 our two-year-olds through 5th graders will be learning and exploring Faith Foundations from the TEACH Sunday school and Christianity Cove curriculums. Children will be challenged to move beyond “head” knowledge of the Bible into “heart and life-change” experiences. These lessons will support their growing relationship with Jesus by gaining a deeper understanding of the Biblical foundation that faith is built on.
During the year we also offer special programming:
Not only do we want our children to learn about Jesus, and why He came to serve... but to put their faith into practice by learning what it means to serve others. On the first Sunday of every other month, 1st-5th graders will meet in the Court for KIDS4KIDS. Together we talk and learn to live out Matthew 25:40, “ … whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Whether making placemats for a local soup kitchen, collecting change to purchase winter accessories for kids in need locally or internationally, raising money to support our mission trips or a host of other initiatives, kids have the opportunity to live out Jesus’ call to serve.
THE NEXT STEP
During the 4 weeks leading up to Easter 5th graders will participate in a special class designed just for their age group. The Next Step curriculum was specifically created to explain the meaning and importance of having a relationship with Jesus. It focuses on the Lord’s Supper (Communion) and the personal connection He wants to have with us.
Get ready for a really fun Sunday night! KIDS CLUB is for Grace Kids and their friends (especially those who might not attend Grace) who are in 2nd- 5th grades. We meet on the first Sunday of each month from 5-7pm to enjoy dinner, small & large group discussion and of course, lots of fun.
