Children’s Ministry

Our Children’s Ministry endeavors to work with families to teach children about the greatness and worth of God and encourage children to glorify God, live holy lives and serve God joyfully.

During this time that we are unable to have our regular classes, please join us on Sundays at 9:00am for our outdoor service.

A Grace Children’s Ministry team member will be at each of our entry points with an engaging worship packet for each child. We’d love to meet you and work together to equip your family to grow in your faith.

Grace Children’s Ministry is providing video lessons and materials for your use at home with your children. If you are new to Grace and interested in registering with our Children’s Program, please email children@graceevfree.org.  Our Children’s Team will quickly respond.

What We Provide

We provide classes for children birth to five years old during all 3 Sunday morning services. Babies receive loving care in the “Nest.” Toddlers enjoy a short time of singing praises and a Bible story, a practice which continues throughout the early childhood classes as we endeavor to teach our youngest ones at Grace about the greatness and might of God. ‘Children Desiring God‘ curriculum in used in our classes for children Birth to age 2. Our methods and content level changes as children’s ability to understand and attention spans develop. Our preschooler curriculum covers lessons from the Old Testament during summer and fall and the New Testament in winter and spring. The Sunday morning schedule for all our classes includes themed play, outside play (weather permitting) the Bible lesson, singing, often coloring or a craft and a snack for each class, each service.

Elementary

Kindergarten – Fifth Grade

What We Provide

Our passion for teaching our children about the greatness and goodness of God continues through their elementary years. Each Sunday our elementary children meet together for a time of praise and worship. Following this they go to grade level classes where our dedicated teachers teach in interactive lessons.

All elementary classes learn from Children Desiring God curriculum during second service and meet in grade level classes.

Learn more about Children Desiring God

Children Desiring God describes their curriculum as existing “to equip the body of Christ to spread to the next generations a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ. Our aim is to impart to children a vision of God, who He is, and who we are in relation to Him, and to establish them with a foundation of doctrine and truth. We want them biblically grounded, seeing God as the hero of every story, with a God-centered world view and a faith that will hold them when the days of testing come. We want them to love the Lord their God with all their heart, and to delight in Him forever.”
