- Summer BreakOut
At Grace, we call the Children’s Ministry "Graceplace for Kids" – or GPK. Our desire is to create a place for kids that fosters the idea that church is a community where a kid can learn about God and life while having a blast doing it. We want every child to realize that pursuing a relationship with Christ is the most exciting adventure they can take. That following Christ happens “where they live.” It is a daily pursuit. We hope for each child to say: “Why wouldn’t I want a relationship with Christ?”
We strive to make you and your child’s time with us a great experience. To ensure your child’s security, a member of our greeting team will start by checking your child in at one of our check-in stations. If desired, we will escort you to your child’s classroom where a classroom volunteer will greet your child and answer any questions you might have. All of our volunteers are background checked and trained to make your child’s experience the best possible.
We divide the children’s ministry into three divisions:
- Nursery (birth through 24 months)
- Preschool (2 years through PreK)
- Elementary (Kindergarten through 5th grade)
We also have a ministry to those with special needs called SOAR. If you have a child that would benefit from one-on-one attention in the classroom, please let us know.
Each division is taught Biblical truth at a level appropriate to their age. During the service, your preschool and elementary child will be taught a lesson based on the same content you will hear in the adult worship service. This helps facilitate family discussions during the week about what you’ve learned and opens the door to discussions of other spiritual topics as well.
If for any reason we need you during the service, we will flash your child’s given security number on the screen in the worship center. If you should happen to see your number on the screen, please meet a children’s ministry volunteer at the Welcome Center in the lobby.
We hope to make your child’s time with us one of the most exciting times of their week, as well as a time that is helpful to their walk with Christ.
We would be honored to have you visit us!

Everyone has a story. Jesus has a story. You have a story. Is Jesus a part of your story?
What’s Your Story? is the theme for SBO 2014. Through worship, dramas, crazy fun sites, an unforgettable missions project, cool crafts and great teaching, kids will experience Jesus in a whole new way. Our week will be topped off by our annual SBO Carnival, where the kids can share with their families everything they learned. You won’t want to miss it!
SBO (1st through 6th grade, fall 2014) is June 9-13 (NOTE: 1st graders choose which week to attend)
- Morning session: 9am - Noon
- Evening session: 6 - 8:40pm
The fee for SBO is $25 – which includes a t-shirt. Music from the week will be available for purchase.

Girls regularly experience new challenges that teach service, team-building, and leadership skills in a safe and fun environment. We are dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. We encourage family involvement and embrace Christian values throughout the program.
AHG at Grace
Our Troop meets twice each month on Sunday afternoons throughout the school year, with additional optional activities through the year and during the summer. Each year we offer three service projects, a variety of social activities, one or two camping/outdoor events, and several badges accomplished as a group. For the girl who wants more, we support and encourage her to pursue badges and sports pins in areas that interest her, offer suggestions for additional service opportunities, and provide additional leadership roles for her within the Troop.
