Early Childhood

(Birth - Age 4)

Our Early Childhood environment is specifically geared to help lay a foundation for our littlest ones to discover and develop a relationship with Jesus. We offer this opportunity through age-appropriate learning activities, toys, and the relationships between the children and leaders. Our Early Childhood facility is staffed by trusted and caring individuals who model God’s love to your children.

GraceKids Core Values

Your child matters to God and is a very important person at Grace Church. Here are the key principles guiding our Children’s Ministry.


Biblical – We want children to develop a greater understanding of what the Bible teaches so that they can develop a growing relationship with the God who made and loves them.


Partnership - We believe God has given parents the primary responsibility for the spiritual development of their children. For this reason, parents, we do not want to do ministry for you but with you. We partner with you.


Integration - We believe long-term spiritual development happens best when children (and then youth) are integrated into the greater life of the church. We seek to provide healthy contexts where integration happens.


Enjoyable - We believe that learning about Jesus can and should be enjoyable. We want children to want to come to church.


Safe - We will not do anything to compromise the safety of your children. Our check-in system is intentionally designed to keep track of every child at all times and make sure they only leave their classroom with a parent or guardian with the corresponding label.

How Check-In Works


Bring your child to the GraceKids check-in table and a volunteer will look up your child by name or phone number.


We will print two labels complete with your child’s name, what class he/she is in, a parent’s phone number, and any important medical information. One label goes with your child and the other stays with you.  A volunteer will then direct you towards the correct classroom for your child.   After the service, show your printed label to a GraceKids volunteer to pick up your child. 


If your child is just joining us for the first time, please arrive early so we can get all the information we will need for future check-ins made safe and easy!
