Grace Kids exists for children to personally experience God’s transforming love. The gospel is the foundation of our community. Relationships are essential to discovering how crazy God’s love is for us. No one has more potential to influence a child’s relationship with God than his or her family; therefore, we value families more than our programs. We invite you to experience God together with us.
Infants-Kindergarten | What We Do
We create a fun and safe environment for your little ones to learn about God and His love for them. We look forward to teaching your toddlers that God loves them, God made them and Jesus wants to be their forever friend. Your preschoolers will be assigned to an age-appropriate small group class where they will learn God’s truth from Bible stories. They will be encouraged in large group to sing, dance and interact with our storytellers who creatively teach Bible stories each week.

Story Time: Children gather on the rug to play an activity. This helps them connect with each other and their small group leaders. They will hear a story about God and how He made them, loves them and wants to be their forever friend.
