Click for 2013 Summer Camp Information! Registration is now Open!
The Children's Ministry at Grace Avenue is a place where all children, birth through 5th grade, can call home. Children have the opportunity to experience the grace and love of Jesus Christ through Worship, Sunday School, Missions, Special Events/Seasonal Activities, and Vacation Bible & Enrichment Camps.
All children deserve to be loved for who they are and who God has made them!
CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL
During the 9:30 and 11:00 Sunday School Hours, children in Kindergarten - 5th grades are invited to begin their learning adventure in the EDGE ROOM! We begin with some high energy songs, videos, and an exciting "Attention Getter." Once the opening is complete, children are led to their traditional classroom with their Volunteer Teacher. Parents will pick them up after class from their traditional classroom.

SATURDAY EVENING WORSHIP SERVICE
Saturday evening, we want children to worship with their families. However, we also want to provide a time of learning for them that focuses on the Scripture read in worship. With this in mind, we invite children to come forward following the reading of the Scripture and go for a time of learning with Ms. Kristen. The children will return during the time of offering to share in the final song with their families.
SUNDAY SCHOOL (ALL 3 SERVICES)
Children in Kindergarten - 5th Grade have the opportunity to attend Sunday School on Sunday mornings at 8:45, 9:50 and 11:00am for crafts, Bible study and fun. Children meet with kids their same age as they learn about a life with Christ and the love of God. You won’t want to miss this time!! If you are interested in ways you can help, please contact Kristen Lane, Children’s Minister.
We have six Nursery Rooms on Sunday mornings and one on Saturday evenings. Our rooms are staffed with paid nursery workers to help provide the children with a familiar face each week. Volunteers add extra loving care during the worship services as needed. Our goal is to share God’s love with your child as they play in a safe, loving environment. Our two older groups have a different lesson during each of the Learning Hours on Sunday mornings. Snacks are provided during time spent in the nursery unless otherwise specified. Please make us aware of any allergies or special issues your child may have. CLICK HERE for Nursery Policies.
CHILDREN'S WORSHIP BULLETINS
We want children to participate in our worship services! To help your children share in the Scripture, Children’s Worship Bulletins and crayons are available at the back of the Worship Center.
One way to help your child get involved in the leadership of worship is for you to volunteer to be a greeter or usher on Saturday night or Sunday mornings. Your child can then assist you with these responsibilities. It is a great way for them to learn service as they grow in their understanding about being a disciple of Jesus Christ.
JESUS URGES GENEROSITY JUG
Our Jesus Urges Generosity Jug is an active sign of worship for all of the children in our church. Our hope is that each child can understand what an offering is and how it can help all the work that God does through us. Our goal is to use these offerings to help different organizations and groups continue to do their ministry. Each month we choose a different ministry to help support. We pray that as our children grow in this active part of worship, that they can teach the rest of us how to be good stewards of all of God’s gifts.
CHILDREN AND MUSIC - Praise Kids!
