We Love Kids!

Children define our future. At God's Grace we help children of all ages and their families develop a strong foundation for a faith that will last a lifetime. Here's some information for our first-time guests:
  • All children are welcome in worship.
  • Loving nursery care is available for infants & toddlers under 3 years.
  • Kids 3 yrs – 5th grade are invited forward for a Children's Sermon. Afterward, they may choose to go to Children’s Church for an age-appropriate Bible lesson and small group experience. They will return to the worship space before the offering.
  • Youth participate in worship. During the school year grades 6-8 and senior high youth groups meet for midweek activities.

Birth - Age 3

Children are welcome in worship at God's Grace.  Sitting near the front, where they can see what's going on, and having some quiet toys or activities are both good ways to help little ones participate in worship. But sometimes it's hard for little ones to sit still and quiet, so nursery care is available for children age 3 and under. Questions? Contact Claudia Larson.

3 Years - 5th Grade

Children's Connection

On Sunday mornings, children age 3 - 5th grade are invited to come forward for a children's sermon and then to go together to Children's Connection. At Children's Connection, kids sing songs, do crafts, watch videos, and do other activities that help them connect with God in a way that makes sense to them. Children return to the worship center to participate in offering, communion, and the end of the service with their families. Questions? Contact Vikki Luce.

Rites of Passage

God's Grace offers faith-building workshops throughout the year for parents and their children followed by celebrations in worship to mark significant milestones in our childrens' faith journeys, like receiving their first Bible or taking their first communion.

Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that's in you, love him with all you've got! Write these commandments that I've given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates. (Deuteronomy 4:6-9)
