Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments I give to you today are to be on your hearts. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframe of your houses and your gates.
Thank you for visiting the Children of Grace page. There is no greater privilege than to teach, guide, and love children as we weekly dive into the truth of God's story - Creation, Fall, Redemption and Restoration. God's word ordains that parents are to be the primary spiritual disciplers in the their child's life. Our desire is to "walk along the road" beside you, every step of your child's faith journey.
Our hope and prayer is that the Children of Grace come to experience, understand, and trust just how much their Father in heaven knows and loves them. That you as parents, our ministry team, our volunteers shepherd each child's heart to embrace and engage the truth of God's word and His gospel.
We are here to partner with you, our door is open!

Bring your Bible program - We want to start teaching our children the importance of the Bible at a young age. So, we want to encourage them to bring their bible to church each week. Show our Sunday morning check in staff your bible, and receive a stamp (in the cover or on your child's hand).
Bible Memory program - Every 4-6 weeks, your child will work on a new memory verse that connects to what they are studying in Sunday School. Your child will receive a magnet from their classroom teacher to take home and practice. Once your child knows their verse, encourage them to recite it to their teachers. They will then earn a bible memory button. Have your child keep their buttons for a "belt of truth" that will be available this Fall. Stay tuned!!
Stay in touch with us through...
1) Children of Grace emails - End of the month emails are sent with ministry updates for curriculum, memory verses, mission opportunity, offering and events. Be sure you are registered online to receive these (see registration below if you have not already registered).
