SUNDAY SCHOOL | Building Blocks Of Faith
At Grace UMC, we are committed to early spiritual education. Our mission is to provide a foundation for your child to grow and develop a confidence in God’s love and Jesus’ teachings. A wonderful group of dedicated volunteers work together with our Director of Children’s Ministries to provide dynamic year round programming.
We engage our children through a variety of activities from Sunday school lessons to monthly service projects. At each age level and on every Sunday of the year we invite our children into a meaningful faith experience. We offer three age appropriate Sunday school programs for our children from 3 through fifth grade.
If you have any questions or feel called to volunteer in this ministry, please contact Liz Steimer.
KID’S CORNER | Early Walks With Christ
Kid’s Corner is Grace UMC’s version of Children’s Church and is offered for children 3 years old through 2nd grade. It provides an opportunity for young children to share their prayer concerns and praise reports, participate in the Lord’s Prayer and be introduced to various components of worship.
Kid’s Corner begins directly following the Children’s Message given during our Sunday worship services. Any child (ages 3 – 2nd grade) is encouraged to come to the front of the sanctuary during worship for a brief message led by our Director of Children’s Ministries. After the message, all children are ushered out of the sanctuary and into Kid’s Corner. Your children are ministered to by a handful of loving parent volunteers led by our Director.
Following this time of worship and story, children enjoy free play in our Activity Center.
KIDS 4 CHRIST | Fellowship & Learning
Kids 4 Christ, a program of fun, fellowship and learning, is offered each Sunday evening from 5:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. for children, ages 4 through fifth grade. This program is scheduled to take place at the same time as our Youth Program, Parenting Bible Study and Prayer Shawl Knitting.
With a team of experienced and enthusiastic adult leaders, children share weekly devotions, sing, play hand-bells, learn Bible stories and play. Children learn the foundations of our faith, such as the Apostles’ Creed, Gloria Patri and Books of the Bible.
NURSERY | Safe & Loving Spaces
Nurseries at Grace UMC are available during all worship services, Sunday school and Sunday evening programs. Certified care is offered for infants and toddlers up to 3 years old.
