We exist to equip and encourage parents in their discipleship of their children by integrating, nurturing, and commissioning their children in both the fear and grace of the Lord!
Childcare is available during the entirety of the worship service for children age birth – Kindergarten. Children ages 2-kdg will also have an age-appropriate Bible lesson each week.
Children in 1st-3rd grades are welcome to participate in “Worshipers in Training” which meets during the second half of our worship service (children are dismissed after the singing portion of worship). Worshipers in Training follows along with the same passage of Scripture that is being taught by the pastor in the sanctuary but at a more age-appropriate level.
If you are new or visiting Grace, stop by our info desk in the main commons when you arrive and a children’s ministry team member would be happy to help you sign your kids in for these Sunday morning ministries and escort you and your family to their respective classrooms.
Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him.
In AWANA kids age 3 through grade 5 participate in singing Scripture songs, playing games, memorizing verses, and learning about God’s Word so that they can better hide God’s Word in their heart (Psalm 119:11).
AWANA begins on September 15th!
Meets Wednesday evenings from 6:15pm - 8:00pm
Truth & Training
At Grace Church we believe children are a gift from God, and we are very excited that you are considering child dedication. Child dedication is a commitment you make before God, as parents, to give thanks to God and raise your children according to God’s purpose. It is our heart to partner with you as your child grows and develops their own personal relationship with God. To that end, we offer a dedication service designed to help you commit to raising your child to find and follow God!
Got questions? Visit the Child Dedication page to learn more.
The next Child Dedication date is Sunday, May 8, 2022 with a required class on Sunday, April 24, 2022 at 11:00am
We’ve compiled this list of resources for family to use as a kind of in the discipleship of their children. Here you’ll find resources to help your kids prepare for and participate in the church service; digital devotions that your kids can watch and be taught from independently or you can do together; and a few of our favorite printed resources that you can use for family devotions in your home. We will try our best to update this list as seasons and needs change or as we become aware of new resources.
Church Picture Schedule and Expectations
Great for use with younger children to help them follow along with the service and to set and remember expectations during the service. You may even want to offer an incentive for meeting the expectations. Print one off for your children to follow along with each Sunday.

Interested in serving in Children's ministry?
We are always looking for more volunteers to partner with us in sharing the love of Jesus with the next generation of the church! We are looking for faithful, cheerful, go-getter volunteers who love Christ and His Word and want to share it with others!
As a church, we are aware of the dangers to children in our culture, and we strive to make the church environment a positive, safe, and happy place for children to grow in their spiritual understanding. For this reason, we require that anyone working with minors in a ministry capacity at the church complete our volunteer application which includes a background check. Volunteers are then routinely screened again during the years of their service in an attempt to maintain an unhindered ministry to children.
