Welcome to GraceKidz!

We are so excited that you have decided to join us in our journey of faith through God’s Word!  If you are not yet a part of our innovative Sunday morning classes, we invite you to consider making us a part of your week!

Here at Grace, we consider children to be our hope for the future.  They are the next generation of leaders, disciples, and carriers of the Truth.  This is why we put tremendous importance on guiding them through the classic stories of the Old Testament, instilling in them the truth and relevance of the New Testament, and leading them towards a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!

Our teachers teach because they value children and they desire to impart God’s wisdom to them.  They are trained, willing, and eager to encourage, instruct, and assist parents in guiding our future leaders. We have classes for all ages two through high school.  Parents can enjoy Sunday School in the adult class while their children embark on a weekly trip through the Bible.

Across the age groups, we study relevant topics every week.  Each class is age-suited and packed full of activities that reiterate the Bible lesson.

Grace will always take our job of ministering to tomorrow’s leaders very seriously!  We welcome and encourage all children to be a part of our Sunday School “family”!

In His Service,


Tara Moran
Sunday School Principal

Worship Service Childcare: 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

GraceCare

Our Nursery is lovingly attended every Sunday morning during our 10:30 am – 12:00 pm worship service. Jesus said in Matthew 19:14, “Let the little children come unto me.”  He valued even the youngest among us and so do we at Grace. While you worship, let your children be well attended by our trained, consistent Nursery Caregivers. Each child is assigned a number that is used to notify parents, if needed, on the media screen during service.

J.A.M (Jesus and Me)

Calling all “jammers”  ages 2 – Kindergarten to come and see that “Jesus loves the little children!” Come jam with us!  We will sing, play, create, and explore as we learn about Jesus and God’s Word! A “unique” worship service for young children to enjoy while parents worship in the Sanctuary! JAM’s movers and shakers are entertained during the 10:30 am – 12:00 am Worship Service by caring, qualified leaders and fun-loving assistants.

Sunday School Classes: 9:30 am – 10:15 am

ADVENTURERS:  2 years through Pre-K

Girl Colors in Kids Kan Class

These are our little explorers!  They learn through stories, songs, play, and hands-on activities. At this age, life is an adventure and we desire for God’s Word to be a huge part of that adventure.  The Bible instructs us in Proverbs 22:6,  to “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.”  What a beautiful promise!  What better time to begin training a child than at this tender age!  It is our goal to help you as parents create the desire in your young Adventurers to always continue their adventure with Christ!

ROYALTY:  Kindergarten through 2nd graders

K-2nd Class

Yes, we have “royalty” here at Grace!  These are our princes and princesses, our lords and ladies, our kings and queens in His Kingdom!  This room, complete with castle decor, is filled each Sunday with young people who are finding out that we all are, as His word says in Psalm 139:14, “fearfully and wonderfully made”.  We are children of the King, adopted into His family and that makes us all Royalty!  What a beautiful gift from God we are giving these young future leaders when we encourage them in the truth and knowledge that they are His children!  It is our goal to help you as parents show these princes and princesses just how truly special and important they are in the Kingdom of God!

DISCOVERERS:  Third through Sixth graders

3rd-6th Grade Girls

Truth is a beautiful gift meant to be discovered through God’s Word!  These elementary students are at an age of discovery!  They are finding out who they are and who they want to become!  We strive to help them discover Jesus Christ personally, to discover that they want Him to be the biggest part of who they are and who they want to become!  The Bible instructs us in Psalm 34:8, to “taste and see that the Lord is good!”  It is our desire for them to discover how to “taste” and always hunger for more of Christ!  Our goal is to help you as parents guide them faithfully in the greatest discovery of their lives, the living Word of God!

EXTREME EXECUTIVES:  Seventh through Twelfth graders

Youth Class Listening

Junior High and High School are some of the greatest years in the life of a young person, but they can also be some of the most trying and difficult years amongst peers who don’t always understand them, teachers who don’t always care, and a host of people who they feel can’t relate to them.  We strive to equip our young people to take charge of their lives by teaching them the Word of God and by leading them towards a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!  We call them Extreme Executives because we want them to feel the power and boldness of Executives!  The Bible teaches us through Philippians 4:13, that we “can do all things through Christ who strengthens” us.  Wow!  What a promise!  We are not limited by our own insecurities and inabilities, but we are empowered through Christ in all things!  It is our desire to help you as parents “empower” your “Executive” by teaching the truth and promises of God’s Word and revealing the relevance of His word in their lives today!

When are your services?

Sunday School Classes for all ages are offered every Sunday morning at 9:30 am. Sunday Worship Services for everyone are at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday.

What do you believe?

Well, in a nutshell, we believe that we’re here to bring glory to God. We passionately desire to worship Jesus Christ, to instruct and encourage Christians to become like Christ and to share Jesus, our Savior and Lord, with the world. If you would like more details about what we believe, check out the beliefs page.

Should I bring a Bible?

Sure. But we also include all of the text on the multimedia screen for your convenience.

I like Grace Christian Family Center, how do I join?

Simply request a membership form from any of our friendly ushers. They all wear name tags so you can spot them. They will give you a simple form to take home and look over. Fill it out and bring it the next Sunday, or mail or email it.

I Want to Be Baptized. What is the process?

Tell one of the pastors. You’ll see their photos in every Sunday’s bulletin in the foyer. They’ll schedule you at your convenience, and if you’d like a meeting with one of them, they’ll schedule that, too.

I have kids. What kind of children and youth programs do you offer?

We’re here to help you build a foundation of faith in your children. Every Sunday morning at 9:30 our classes are designed for specific age levels. We strive to instill the Word, and a love for the Word, in our children.

During our 10:30 am Worship Service, preschoolers are invited to attend J.A.M. (Jesus and Me), a program designed specifically for them to have their own worship and fun.

Every Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm, Youth Pastor Jeff Turner meets with Jr. and Sr. High students for activities and studies designed just for them.

Our Drama Department occasionally produces skits, plays and mini-movies that always have a great message. Youth are always a part of those productions, and they are drawn into the church family and into the truth behind every message!

Under Construction

Grace Youth

Youth Class Listening

We at Grace desire for our youth ministry to be a place where students come to know Jesus personally. We believe that the junior high and high school years are formative years in students’ lives where decisions and choices are made that will have lasting impact. Therefore, it is critical that we do everything we can to point them in the direction of Jesus Christ. Our goal is that all students involved with Grace will grow in relationship with Him, and that they will be equipped, empowered, and eager to go out into their world and impact it for the Lord!

When and where do the Grace youth hang out?

Grace is a great place to form lasting friendships, to hang out with others teens, to laugh and learn with others just like you! All 7th through 12th graders are welcomed to stay after our main church service every 2nd and 4th Sunday and every Sunday morning at 9:30!

VolleyballWhat is going on for me at Grace?

The second and fourth Sunday afternoons are great times to hang out and experience Christ in a relevant way. It is led by Pastor Jeff who always has an innovative approach to sharing God’s Word. It is casual and laid back and always entertaining! On Sunday mornings, Extreme Executives meet to study God’s Word in a relaxed setting, with down-to-earth teaching, and the chance for you to engage in discussion. Plus, you can hang out at our upstairs Coffee Bar and chat with friends before class starts!
