THE BARN HOUSE is our ministry to children and their families – it’s a place were all of us gather together and learn from each other. The church is, after all, the entire body of Christ, which includes all generations – including children. By existing together in community, we all benefit. Thus, children are to be 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.
NURSERY DURING WORSHIP, we offer Nursery Care for children ages 0-3 years of age during the entirety of the worship service.
CHILDREN’S LITURGY. During part of the worship service (when the adults are hearing the sermon and prayers) we offer a Children’s Liturgy program for two different age groups – for kids ages 3-4, and for kids ages 5-6). In the Children’s Liturgy, the kids will hear a story, sing a hymn, say prayers, and be instructed in some biblical theme.

Before our worship service (at 4pm), except in the Summer, we offer THREE Christian Education classes for children: a 4yr olds – Kindergarteners. class; a 1st – 3rd Grade Class; and a 4th – 6th Grade Class.
