GraceKids Color-Trans

GraceKids is our ministry to children ages infant to 5th grade. GraceKids is lead by a Council of diverse men and women who are excited to see the Kingdom of God grow in the next generation of the church. We strive to equip parents, empower volunteers and engage children with the Good News that God loves them and wants to be close with them. Our main mission is to point all kids to the BEST LIFE: a Life with God. We seek to do these things through our Sunday morning programs and different opportunities we offer through the year.

Sunday Morning: The Best Day of the Week

During our two services we offer opportunities for kids to learn the Big Story of God and how they fit into that story. There are classes offered for all ages at our 9:25 service. Infants through 2nd grade class are found on our first floor and out in our modular buildings. 3rd-5th graders are enjoying time in Grace Place upstairs. At the 11:00 service we offer classes for infants through 2nd grade and encourage families who want to worship together to attend this service and take your 3rd-5th grader into the main worship service with you.

Other Opportunities

New Life Class

New Life is a class we offer for kids in the 2nd-5th grade who are interested in Baptism or want to learn more about a life with God. Kids who want to take the 8 week course come through the class with an adult mentor, who commits to meeting with the child once a week outside of class and completing homework with along with the child. This is a favorite class for parents and kids here at Grace. We offer the class in the spring and the fall.

Child Dedication

Families who are covenanters with Grace have the opportunity to dedicate their children in a service offered twice a year. There is a parent class that families must attend in order to dedicate their children and we also host a dedication dinner where staff and elders get to hear parents stories of faith and the hopes they have for their children. If you are interested in child dedication please contact tanderson@gracegso.org

VBS

We hold a weeklong vacation Bible school the last full week of June each summer. We normally have around 200 kids come to the VBS and we hope to engage each of them with the truth that God is for them and loves them. This week takes a good number of volunteers and time to pull off. If you are interested in helping in anyway with VBS, please contact jholloway@gracegso.org for more information.
