Welcome to Grace Kids

Here at Grace, we think kids are a big deal! The goal of children’s ministry is to forge firm foundations of faith through Scripture, worship, offering help, relationships and prayer.

Our volunteers and programs support families through every stage of childhood, building relationships and helping kids to know and follow Jesus along the way.

Through skits, songs, games, videos, crafts and other fun activities, kids learn about God’s love as they meet new friends and create lifelong memories.

    This year's VBS, "ROAR: Life is Wild, God is Good!".  Mark your calendar for August 5-9, 2019.  This epic African adventure engages the whole herd.  At Roar, kids explore God's goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life.

  • Family Fun Days

    One way families connect with one another at Grace is at our quarterly Family Fun Days. Roller skating parties, movie nights, visits to the zoo and other fun events provide families a chance to spend time with one another. They are also a great way to introduce friends and neighbors to the Grace family.
