Church Picture Directory
The New Church Picture Directory will be available soon! We should be receiving the copies of the new directory in early August. If you or your family had your photo taken for the directory, or submitted a photo, you will be able to pick up your directory at the Church once we receive them. Details will be provided in the upcoming weeks.

Children's Education
Over the last few months we have been researching a new curriculum and have landed on a VBS model that will depart greatly from our current craft-based curriculum. 
A significant portion of our decision is based on how the new curriculum will affect our children and their spiritual development. We hope that they will gain a deeper understanding of scripture through various differentiated activities. 

The premise of this new curriculum is to teach all students, ages 4 through 5th grade, the same themes on their respective levels. Each session is comprised of four stations that include art, music, science, movies, games and cooking.

Our hope is to include a broader pool of volunteers comprised of those who enjoy one on one interactions with students as well for members of the church who enjoy focused, experience-based learning to impart on the students. Please prayerfully consider signing up to lend a hand. The sign-up sheets are located across from the church office. 

The goal of our new curriculum is to “set the table” so that the youth of Grace can grow in their discipleship and become participating members of our congregation. 

For more information please contact Susan Dorshimer, Kelly Hudson, or Neilly Graves.
