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 Church. We want to include children in the majority of church activities.
WHAT DO WE OFFER FOR CHILDREN?
NURSERY DURING CHRISTIAN EDUCATION (5pm). In order for parents to attend Christian education, we offer nursery care in Highland’s nursery.
NURSERY DURING WORSHIP, we offer Nursery Care for children ages 0-2 years of age during the entirety of the worship service up until ‘The Peace’ is exchanged (right before Communion). The Nursery at Highland is located upstairs (the stairs are at the back of the sanctuary), and is always staffed by two volunteers.
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 3-6) in the upstairs of Highland, in the room adjacent to the nursery. 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 5pm), except in the Summer, we offer two Christian Education classes for children. The Kindergarten – 3rd Grade Class is upstairs at Highland, in the room adjacent to the nursery. The 4th – 6th Grade Class will meet downstairs in the youth room, which is next to the kitchen. The classes cover biblical stories (all from a Christ-centered perspective), along with prayer, study, discussion, food, and fun!
