The goal at Grace Kids is that your child has fun learning the truth of God's Word, singing worship songs, and participating in activities, games, and craft-time with their peers. Our volunteers are excited to speak words of truth and love to your child while helping them to feel comfortable and enjoy the morning so you can enjoy the service.
WHAT TO EXPECT
If it’s your first time visiting with us, you’ll find Grace Kids on the Mezzanine level of the Radisson Blu Hotel. Right off the elevators, you’ll see our check-in area. We’ll assist you with sign up, give you some information and escort your child to their classroom.
We ask that parents register their children on Friday mornings before 10:15am in order for their children to take part in Grace Kids.
Our classrooms are divided by age and arranged by a color system:
- Red Class (babies through age 2)
In the Red Class, volunteers care for babies and young toddlers; reading stories, singing songs, praying, and playing with the little ones. A short storytime and coloring page is the highlight of the morning for the older 1-and-2-year-olds.
- Orange Class (Ages 3 and 4)
The Orange class has a time of free-play with toys, a coloring page, and a few fun hands-on activities followed by storytime and lots of singing. These pre-school children work on learning a new short verse from the Bible each month.
- Yellow Class (Ages 5 and 6)
The Yellow class completes an activity page based on the week's Bible Lesson. Volunteers teach these children Biblical truths in a fun and interactive way, as well as lead them in songs of praise. They finish each lesson with hands-on activities and a time of play with their peers.
- Green Class (Ages 7 and 8)
The Green class children work to understand Biblical truths as they learn from activities and games, a review of previous weeks' lessons, and a new Bible lesson each week. They also spend time worshiping in song and prayer.
- Blue class (Ages 9 - 11/12)
This final class of Grace Kids is for children in the last years of elementary or primary school. This class prepares them for moving to the service with their parents. These children attend the Worship time downstairs with their parents and are dismissed before the Pastor's message. Once upstairs, the class spends some time building relationships with activities, then learns from the Bible, asking and answering questions and engaging in Bible study-based discussion.
Grace Church uses the Gospel Project Curriculum. Take a look at this video describing the Gospel Project:
Want to make a difference in shaping the next generation? Our curriculum is based on helping kids understand who Jesus is and what He’s done for them. Volunteer opportunities range from caring for young children infants to teaching Elementary-aged students. Non-classroom opportunities such as computer check-in are also available.
