GraceKids is the Children's Ministry of Grace Fellowship Church. Here at Grace we have age-approaite ministries for children so that they can learn about Jesus on their level! Grace has always strived to do what is the very best for the children God has entrusted to our care.  We are committed to come alongside parents to partner with them as they lead their children into life with Christ.
 

0-6 months

For our smallest treasures there is a cry room located next to the fireplace in the foyer that parents are free to use.  This room houses several toys (in the baskets) the children can play with, a diaper changing station, and a comfy spot for mothers to nurse.  (There is a Welcome sign on the door that can be turned around to read “Nursing” so you can nurse privately if you wish). For your convenience there is a speaker system and video feed so you can watch the service as well. This room allows you to tend to your baby’s needs without missing any of the service. 
 

6 months-1 year old

As soon as a child turns 6 months old, they are welcome to come into our GraceKids environment to be cared for. We have an incredible space catered to the needs and desires of an infant. In the 6months-1 year old environment, your child will be well taken care of and they will also be shown the love of Jesus while you are able to participate in the adult worship service. 
 
Preschool
 
When a child is of preschool age, we invite them to come to our preschool ministry here at Grace. This ministry is catered to the specific needs and interests of a preschool child. This environment is a place where a child can come and learn about Jesus in a way that is most relevant to them. Here they sing high energy worship songs, they participate in fun activities, and they hear an awesome bible story
 
During a preschooler’s time here, we want them to learn 3 Basic Truths:
 
  1. God Made Me
  2. God Loves Me
  3. Jesus Wants to Be My Friend

Preschoolers may be small, but if they don’t learn to grow and do the things God created them to do, the whole church suffers.  That is why we believe it is so important to teach them about God’s love and their place in His kingdom at this early age.

 
Children Kindergarten-5th Grade
 
Kids K-5 learn to trust God, make wise choices, and build lasting friendships.  We believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care.  Before kids head off to middle school, we believe there are 3 Basic Truths every child should embrace according to what Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52…and Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man.
 
During a elementary child's time here, we want them to learn 3 Basic Truths:
  1. Wisdom: I need to make the wise choice.
  2. Faith: I can trust God no matter what. 
  3. Friendship: I should treat others the way I want to be treated. 
 
 
 
Every week the children participate in a Large Group setting.  During this time, we use costumes, props, and characters from the story–anything that makes the Bible come to life.  We also carve out time each week for the children to worship by singing and dancing to show God how much they love Him.  The focus of our elementary environment is our Small Group environment.  We want the children to see how God’s Word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to him, and to build friendships that will last.  That’s why it is so important for parents to bring their children to GraceKids every week.  It is the same group, same leader, and  same children each week.  This consistency allows the children to get connected as well as establish a relationship that is going to matter when they need it most.
