CHILDREN & CHURCH. The church is the entire body of Christ, which includes all generations of believers – including children. By existing together in community, we all benefit. Thus, children are to be deliberately included in the worship, prayer, study, and mission of Grace. We want to include children in the majority of church activities.
WHAT DO WE OFFER FOR CHILDREN?
NURSERY DURING CHRISTIAN EDUCATION (4pm). In order for parents to attend Christian education, we offer nursery care in Tower’s nursery.
NURSERY DURING WORSHIP, we offer Nursery Care for children ages 0-3 years of age during the entirety of the worship service up until ‘The Peace’ is exchanged (right before Communion). The Nursery is located downstairs at Tower and is always staffed by two volunteers. Please drop children off before the service, and kindly pick them up at the Peace.
CHILDREN’S LITURGY. During part of the worship service (when the adults are hearing the sermon and prayers) we offer a Children’s Liturgy (for kids ages 4-6) in the third floor of Tower (the children’s room is painted green with kids’ toys here and there — so it’s pretty obvious). In the Children’s Liturgy, the kids will hear a story, sing songs, say prayers, and be instructed in the Anglican Catechism.
SUNDAY SCHOOL. Before our worship service (at 4pm), except in the Summer, we offer two Christian Education classes for children. The Kindergarten – 3rd Grade Class, and the 4th – 6th Grade Class, are on the third floor at Highland. The classes cover biblical stories (all from a Christ-centered perspective), along with prayer, study, discussion, food, and fun!
