Children at Grace

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

– Matthew 19:14

Children are welcome at all our worship services and events. 

The sounds of giggles, wiggles, crayons dropping, and snack bags opening remind us that God is always making things new.

Worship

During the children’s sermon, your children are invited to the front of the Sanctuary to hear about the day’s lessons from the pastor. During Communion, please bring your child to the altar to receive Communion or a blessing.

We offer worship bags full of books and crayons to keep little hands busy. The blue worship bags are in a basket in the Narthex (the entrance room that leads into the Sanctuary.)

Nursery

The nursery is available for babies and children up to age four during the entire worship service. Our nursery attendants are trained in infant and child CPR and first aid, have childcare experience, and work in pairs to ensure your child’s safety. An usher will be happy to show you where the nursery is located.

Sunday School

Between worship services, we have Sunday School classes for children beginning at age 2. Our classes use the “Spark: Activate Faith” curriculum to help children learn about God’s love and the Bible through lessons, crafts, and games.

Milestone Ministry

Our church family celebrates the faith milestones of our children beginning at Baptism and continuing through high school graduation. Each child receives a gift and a blessing as they enter Sunday School, begin to receive Communion, get their driver’s license, and more.

Children’s Choir

Our choir for elementary-age children rehearses in the fall for a Christmas concert and in the spring for other special performances. An intern from the music program at Winthrop University assists Dr. Mims with the children’s music program.

Vacation Bible School

We invite our church family, their friends, and the children in our surrounding neighborhood to participate in a week of Vacation Bible School each summer. Our VBS is a half-day program in the mornings.
