Grace City Kids Ministry serves our families with children birth through 5th grade. It’s our privilege to partner with you in making disciples of Jesus who love God, one another, and our city.
WHEN AND WHERE IS GRACE CITY KIDS?
Check –In starts 15 minutes before the service (10:15) through 15 minutes after the service (10:45). Kindergarten -5th graders participate in the main service for the first portion, with their families. They will be dismissed after the first few songs to their classrooms. Birth – Preschool ages can be checked into their classroom prior to service. If you need help locating the kids area, one of the hosts in the courtyard will be happy to assist you.
We also have a Nursing Moms area next to the Nursery Room for moms only. Please no men allowed. You may access that area throughout the service as needed.
WHAT WILL MY CHILDREN DO?
- Sunday mornings at G/C Kids involve times of singing and teaching, arts and crafts, and interactive games and activities. We aim to provide each child with an age-appropriate Bible lesson that will encourage conversations between kids and parents throughout the week. We have adopted the Gospel Project curriculum to guide us each week.
Gospel Project for Kids App
The Gospel Project® for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
You can download the app here: Gospel Project for Kids
WILL THEY BE SAFE?
At G/C Kids, we want children to be as safe and comfortable as possible. All our volunteers go through an extremely thorough background check and training process. No child can be picked up without the check-in ticket that was issued before service.
HOW DO I STAY CONNECTED?

Nursery: (6 weeks- 1.5 years)
Our volunteers would love to care for, entertain and pray for your baby while you attend the main service. Please provide your child’s baby care items and let us know of any special instructions.
Preschool: (1.5 years – 4 years)
This classroom provides a fun environment with plenty of room for discovery and creativity. Kids in this age range love to learn with their hands, so we utilize music, crafts, and activities to reinforce each week’s gospel lesson. A small snack of cheerios and water are provided. Please make us aware of any allergies.
Kindergarten -5th Grade:
This classroom gives children the opportunity to connect with other kids their age as well as with G/C Kids volunteers. Kids in this age group join their parents in the main auditorium for the first 20 minutes of service. Then, parents escort them from the auditorium to their classroom during the break in our service. There, the kids engage in a fun, energetic activity before participating in a focused Bible lesson. Finally, the kids take part in a group discussion &/ journal, in order to understand and apply the lesson. We desire for children at this critical age to have a deeply rooted understanding of the gospel to serve as a stable foundation through good and hard times.
