For Kids

Children are an important part of the family that is Grace Baptist Church. We do not want to separate them from learning how to participate in the worship service but also understand the difficulty for some partents to have their young children sit through the entire service. Thus, the children participate with the church body for worship in music, the reading of God's word, and giving. After the offering, they are dismissed downstairs with qualified leaders (many of whom are parents themsevles) and have their own, age-appropriate Bible lesson. The goal is to fully integrate them into the worship service and train their hearts to receive the word. As with every child/youth ministry, leaders go through a background check and are well-known to the people of GBC.

Ages: 3-7

***Please sign your child in at the podium near the nursery before the service so we can ensure their safety.

Matthew 19:4 "...but Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'"

Grace Baptist Church recently updated and expanded our nursery facilities. We have an upstairs nursery (near the auditorium)  that has a private nursing room for new mothers, a bathroom, and plenty of space. This nursery is usually reserved for children who are not yet walking. Parents who sign their children in at the beginning are the only ones authorized to remove the children. Pagers are also available for any parent who wishes to use them.

We also have children's room/play area downstairs located next the the Jr. church room. During Sunday morning services, children ages 2-3 are kept throughout the service in the downstairs room with the leaders (usually a married couple).

All of the lead nursery workers must pass a background check. Your child's safety is of paramount importance!

Ages: newborns - walkers - upstairs nursery / 2-3 - downsairs children's room

In the words of the Lord, "Let the little children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the Kingdom of God. Truly I say to you, whoevere does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it." Mark 10:14-15

Every Wednesday night our young kids, grades K-6th, participate in our Awana program. It is a fun, exciting, and educational program. The kids learn about the Gospel, memorize Scripture, participate fun playing games, and making friends. Our leaders have been trained to be the best leaders for these kids and have undergone background checks. The safety of your child is incredibly important to us at Grace.

Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our programs offer a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.
