We recognize family as the first and primary influencers in the lives of children and consider it a sacred privilege to come along side households in this significant work. Over and again we witness children who grow in their love for God as they learn and serve along side those who passionately loves God! This is not a magic formula by any means–but more about children learning to love who and what their family loves. Whether you are currently exploring life in Christ or fully immersed in raising young disciples, Grace Community wants to partner with you.


In the Gospels (the first four books of the New Testament) families are attempting to bring their children to Jesus and the disciples shoo them away. Jesus sees what is happening and says, “Let the children come to me!” Mark 10:13 A couple chapters later, Jesus is teaching: “Love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy. And, love others as well as you love yourself.” Mark 12:29 Both of these accounts from scripture continually inform the ways in which we desire to join children on their spiritual journey–nurturing a passion to know and love God, others and self and instill a strong sense of belonging!


We believe gathering is a significant–even necessary practice as we seek to live what we believe biblically and philosophically. On Sunday, at 9:00 and 10:45 there is a place for children of all ages to engage in this practice of gathering, to better know God, to know others and to be known.


Just outside the sanctuary (exit side-door) there’s a quiet space designated for nursing and care.

You will meet a team of kind and gentle volunteers who look forward to the opportunity to care for the youngest among us. Nursery rooms are equipped with age-appropriate toys, supplies, snacks and rocking chairs. To know more, contact: LaDonna@grace-community.net

We recognize this age group may do their best learning when given space to use every part of their body. We plan for play, discovery, singing, hearing, seeing and interacting with the story of God. To know more contact: LaDonna at fabfiv@embarqmail.com

Elementary worshipers have been about the work of learning their whole lives! Therefore, we seek to nurture an environment for exploring God’s word. This may include:

  • reliving the story through feasts, theatre and costuming.
  • retelling as we search for our place in God’s big story!
  • games, challenges, puzzles and small groups.
  • singing, new friendships, prayer stations and much more!

Sunday evenings from August to March, children kindergarten through 5th grade are invited and encouraged to participate with leaders who are creative, imaginative and passionate about taking a deeper look into God’s word! Kids will be challenged to memorize and internalize—to be shaped and formed by God’s big story! To know more: the.amazing.keri.brook@gmail.com

Near the end of summer, those going into 4th or 5th grade are invited to apply to serve as leaders and mentors among younger students. This a great opportunity to discover gifting and passion as well as strengthening relationships with peers. In addition to serving during worship gatherings we host:
  • Monthly leadership trainings
  • Friday night specials
  • Retreat
  • Mission Trip
  • Random outings just for fun…
