Grace Kids

Grace Kids Children’s Ministry seeks to come alongside parents to help kids know and love God. 

“Keep your eyes on Jesus, our leader and instructor.”  – Hebrews 12:2

 

Our nursery is open from 9:15 am – 12:00 pm. Infants through 4 years old are welcome to stay in nursery classrooms while parents attend adult classes and the worship service. Each Sunday, the same lesson is taught for both Sunday School and the worship service, but the activities vary. This encourages important Bible truths to stick in children’s hearts and minds.

Infants

Newborn – walking

Infants are cared for with loving kindness and prayed over by volunteers.

 

Toddlers

Walking – 2 years old

play-and-worship-logo

Toddlers follow the Play-n-Worship curriculum from Group Publishing.  Each lesson uses objects from toddlers’ everyday world.  It is heavy on repetition yet includes lots of intentional play, stories, and songs.

 

Preschool

3 – 4 years old

Teach preschoolers the Bible in one big story about God’s love for them through Christ. The Gospel Project® for Preschool brings Bible stories to life through video, music, activities, and more.

Sunday School 9:15 a.m.

K – 6th Grade

We teach the The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum from Lifeway. Every 3 years we are able to completely teach the Bible chronologically. The Story is waiting. Jump in. The Bible is not a collection of stories. It is one story, the story of God’s plan to rescue His people from sin and death. It is the story of redemption, the gospel message of Jesus Christ. And it’s our story, too. In every lesson, participants are immersed in the gospel and learn how when the gospel works on them, they become a part of the story, too, the very hands and feet in God’s gospel project.

Children’s Church 10:30 am

K- 2nd Grade

Grades K-2nd will be dismissed for children’s church on the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th weeks of every month.  This time is called Gospel Project Large Group.  The kids are taught from the same scripture that the Sunday school lesson came from, but in a fun, new, interactive format.

Yearly Activities

 

Breakfast With Santa

Each December we get together for a yummy breakfast, fun crafts, letters to Santa, and a picture with him as well! This is a fun time for kids of all ages to celebrate the Christmas season alongside their parents. Most importantly, kids get to hear the story of the first Christmas and the true meaning of the season through an interactive story time.

VBS — Summer Program

Every summer in June we invite the children in our ministry at Grace Kids along with kids from the community to take part in a fun, week-long program where kids can grow in their relationship with God and others.

Preteen Camp — Summer Program

Sabine Creek Ranch in Royse City, Texas hosts our preteen camp each July.

Kids who have completed 3rd through 6th grade join us for an amazing 4 days at the ranch!

Sabine Creek Ranch knows how to do camping for kids! Camp is perfect for those looking for vibrant, energetic, heart-felt worship, age-appropriate messages that clearly communicate the good news of Jesus to kids, and all the fun they can handle!
