Family Discipleship:Nursery, Sunday School & Children's Church
"The commandments I give you today must be in your hearts. Make sure your children learn them. Talk about them when you are at home. Talk about them when you walk along the road. Speak about them when you go to bed. And speak about them when you get up." Deuteronomy 6:6,7 (NIrV®)
During our Worship Service there is child care available downstairs in the Nursery room. Infants and children (ages birth through kindergarten) may be checked in at 9:50 AM or anytime throughout the service as they are welcome to stay for the singing and then be brought down by their parents and signed in. Please do not hesitate to ask an usher or greeter for directions to these areas.
Jesus took a little child and had the child stand among them. Then he took the child in his arms. He said to them, "Anyone who welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me. And anyone who welcomes me also welcomes the one who sent me. Mark 9:36-37 (NIrV®)
The Nursery Ministry at Grace Church seeks to show the love of Jesus to children (infants through kindergarten age) through Christ-like care. Our CORI screened nursery workers provide a safe, secure, nurturing environment for children while leading a time of worship and teaching about the goodness of our God. There is a check in/check out procedure in place for each child and a silent usher system to notify parents if they are needed during the service.
Each Sunday directly after Worship in singing, children grades K-6 are dismissed to meet for Children's Church. Children will exit by the door next to the pulpit. The class is held in the upstairs Conference Room next to the church offices. Our Children's Church curriculum is by Child Evanglism Fellowship. Our current series is "The Patriarchs: God's Plan Unfolds." The lessons teach children about some of the attributes of God through the dramatic stories of His servants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Children will learn to put their faith in God alone. This series includes five accounts of the Patriarchs that will inspire the children to trust God in everything!
Children will be brought back down to sanctuary during the final worship song and will remain in the front row with their teacher. Families are asked to pick up their children directly after the sevice.
Our Sunday School program has now ended (June 12th) and will begin again on October 2nd, 2023
SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR ALL AGES- 10/3/21-6/12/22
Sunday School begins at 11:15 following the morning worship service. The Adult Sunday School class meets in the sanctuary and is taught by Rev. Rick Porter. Middle and high school students meet upstairs in the conference room. Children (N-5) meet downstairs for their classes.
Our Sunday School program for children (N-5) is called, DiscipleLand (www.discipleland.com). Our heart's desire is that our children will "hide God's Word in their hearts". The Scripture tells us that if we, "train up a child when they are young (to know and trust the gospel of Christ) when they are old they will not depart from it." We seek to come alongside parents to nurture life-long, Christ-following disciples.
The last Sunday School class for Nursery through 5th grade is June 5th. The final DiscipleLand Market (N-5) will be June 12th following the morning worship service. And because Sunday School is worth celebrating, we will be having a Make-Your-Own-Sundae after our DiscipleLand Market. All are welcome to attend!
Children's Church uses Bible songs and videos from Seeds Family Worship! They are Scripture word-for-word set to music.
