So Much for Kids, So Much for Teens

The mission of Grace United Methodist Church is to love God and our neighbors. Simple, right? We think so, too. Jesus said that everything He ever taught could be summarized in those two tasks, so we do everything we can to embody that teaching every day to make sure that children know that they were made by a Heavenly Father who loves them and wants the best for them in this life, and the next.
 
Check out the programs we have for our youth every Sunday morning – both during worship and after worship.  All of these programs and classes are located in the classrooms in the downstairs hallway of the Education Wing, except for the Nursery, which is located in the hallway of the Main Office. Visit the Education Wing stairwell to check-in your child and receive more information about the programs, our teachers, safety procedures, and child pick-up.
 
We truly believe our children’s ministries will change the lives of your kids by bringing them a greater sense of hope and joy. Jesus said that all must enter the Kingdom of Heaven with hearts like that of children.  In their innocence and excitement for life, we pray that your children would discover at Grace Church how much Jesus loves them and that He has a beautiful plan for their lives.

Nursery

SUNDAY MORNINGS 
DURING AND AFTER WORSHIP
INFANTS
 
Located on the north side of the building, in the hallway of the Main Office, our nursery is located near the sanctuary entrance so that you can leave worship and tend to the needs of your child at any time. Our nursery is staffed by a trained and background-checked, trusted adult, so that you can be in worship even though you have a young one to care for.
 

Tiny Tots

SUNDAY MORNINGS 
DURING AND AFTER WORSHIP
AGES 1-4 YEARS-OLD
 
A special class for the fun big kids who are no longer babies, but are not yet potty-trained!  Kids will have a blast down in our vividly painted rooms with scenes that will stir your child’s imagination.  With snack time, play time, and a Bible story time, your child will be engaged in many ways.  This is a great place to give your Tiny Tot some social and spiritual experience before school and before “Big Church” with the adults.

Elementary

SUNDAY MORNINGS
DURING WORSHIP @ 9:30 A.M.
4 YEARS-OLD THROUGH 5th GRADES
 
Our new program teaches our younger youth Bible lessons in four unique stations – music, drama, art, and snack. Your child will be placed in a group that visits each lesson station once a month on a rotation. This program ensures that kids will learn the Bible stories and teachings of Jesus using all of their senses and by engaging their individual learning style. We’re so excited for the projects your kids will get to create here and the memorable experiences have in this program.

Led by a teacher in our church, the drama club at Grace Church is comprised of many elementary and middle-school age youth who enjoy participating in the Christmas play and May spring play each year. These kids draw a crowd, love to sing, act, and dance, and they are grateful to be a part of a free program in their church that gives them a stage for their creative passions!
