Weekend Grace Kids

Our goal is to connect with children and parents by providing a fun, exciting, safe, and loving environment for children to come together to worship and learn about Jesus and the Bible.  We strive to teach God's Word with excellence, present the Gospel at every appropriate opportunity and help children grow in their relationship with Christ.

 

Check In

Children 6th grade and younger need to "Check-In" at one of our computer kiosks before going to their age appropriate room on the weekend.  Someone from our Welcome Team will be available to walk you through the process and take you to the proper room.  

 

Mission Statement

Weekend Grace Kids exists to teach and train children about the wonderful God who loves them, cares for them, and desires their obedience. As we seek to partner with parents in watching the Lord change the lives of children, we desire that Weekend Grace Kids be the foundational arena for ministering to kids here at Grace. We strive to provide a warm, exciting environment for kids to learn the Word of God. This is a year-round ministry involving many volunteers pouring their lives into the children. The children hear Bible stories and participate in various activities in order to help them apply the Biblical Truth they are studying. We are thankful to the Lord for allowing us the opportunity to influence so many young lives for His glory.

 

Curriculum


Summary:

The Gospel Project® is a chronological, Christ-centered Bible study for Kids that examines how all Scripture gives testimony to Jesus Christ. Over the course of three years, participants will journey from Genesis to Revelation and discover how God’s plan of redemption unfolds throughout Scripture and still today, compelling them to join the mission of God.
