Early Childhood

(Birth - Kindergarten)

Nursery: Birth- 2

In the nursery, we will love your child and will provide them with a safe area to play and grow. We will start instilling Gods love for them by showing them his love through song, games and fun activities. 

 

Preschool: 3-Kindergarten

At this age, we want your child to know that God loves them and cherishes them. We will instruct, encourage and help guide them to start praising our Lord Jesus Christ. We will do this through song, memory verses, games and enriching activities.

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!

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. We use the Gospel Project by Lifeway as our curriculum. 


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. We partner with you. Every child receives a journal to work on at home, with family, during the week.


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.  On Fifth Sundays we all worship together.


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


Safe – We believe the safety of your child is important. We offer a safe environment which always has two background checked volunteers. We use a check-in system with stickers to make sure your child is only picked up by a trusted adult.
