We are committed to enabling and empowering each child to grow in age-appropriate Christian discipleship with the eyes of their hearts enlightened and with the spirit of wisdom and revelation.
— From Ephesians 1:17-18

Children delight in learning about God, Jesus, the Spirit and Christian values as they develop their own faith through weekly classrooms or our rotation model approach to Sunday School. The premise of our curriculum is to teach all students, Kindergarten through 5th grade, the same themes on their respective levels.  In the rotation model, students will explore bible verses and stories of one theme through music, art, movies, science, drama, dance, cooking, storytelling, and fellowship that change each week of a 4-6 week unit.
Within the unit, there will be four Sundays of rotations mixed with Grace Gatherings, where all children will be together, and Children’s Worship Sundays where the service will be geared toward the youth.

Sunday school for children 2 years through 5th grade takes place during the 10:30 worship service from September through May. Summer Sunday school is available for children ages 3 - 8 from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. Children begin the service with their families and are called forward for the “Word to the Children”. Following a prayer, children are dismissed to their classes or rotation by age/school grade: 

 

Infant & Toddler Care

Warm and loving childcare for infants 3 months old up to 2 years old is available in the nursery (Lamb Room) during all worship services. 

Apples (4 & 5 years old)

The children in the apple class meet each week upstairs in the Lion room. The apples sing, play, and learn favorite age-appropriate stories of the Old and New Testament.  They witness the amazing wonders of God's world through the eyes of many faithful servants.  We relate the stories to their lives in ways they can easily understand each week in the Lion Room.

Loaves (2nd Grade)

Loaves will participate in the rotation model and meet in the pew with their fish symbol for service. They will be escorted by a Volunteer Shepherd to their weekly rotation and taught by a Volunteer Station Leader.

Figs (2 & 3 years old)

Our Figs class meets each week upstairs in the Whale room with the same lead teacher for 6 weeks. Children learn about God through a play-centered approach.  Each week in the whale room we will be singing, creating, praying, and playing together using Bible stories and classic Bible songs. 

 

Fish (K & 1st Grade)

Fish will participate in the rotation model and meet in the pew with their fish symbol for service. They will be escorted by a Volunteer Shepherd to their weekly rotation and taught by a Volunteer Station Leader.



Grapes (3rd Grade)

Grapes will participate in the rotation model and meet in the pew with their fish symbol for service. They will be escorted by a Volunteer Shepherd to their weekly rotation and taught by a Volunteer Station Leader.

 
 

Olives (4th & 5th Grade)

Olives will participate in the rotation model and meet in the pew with their fish symbol for service. They will be escorted by a Volunteer Shepherd to their weekly rotation and taught by a Volunteer Station Leader.



In addition to Sunday School, there are annual programs of fun, fellowship and faith for children and families including the Advent Workshop, Sunday School Open House, Parents Night Out, Easter Festival and Vacation Bible School.  

 
 

Adult Education

 

As an essential part of Grace Church, the Adult Education Program offers opportunities for growth and learning from September through May on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am as well as with occasional special offerings. Come every week or as often as you can to learn about things theological, relational and current. Join us as we strengthen this vital connection with one another, as a congregation, and with the resources and insights to aid in our life-long faith journey.
