Grace Kids

At Grace Kids, we want kids to know how to Love God, Live like Jesus and Serve the World.  We do this through age-specific programming full of Worship, engaging Bible Stories along with a variety of games, crafts, and activities to reinforce our Bottom Line of the day that fits in with the theme of the month.

Let’s Start the Party!

Jesus gives us the most amazing reasons to party: friendship, belonging, forgiveness, abundant life and purpose! Join us for Vacation Bible School this summer as we learn about and celebrate the good news of Jesus! VBS is for kids who have completed Pre-K through 5th grade (2023/2024). Join us for a party each night July 15-18, 6:00 – 8:30 pm. Registration is $35/child.  Contact Stacy Guerrero with any questions. VBS Registration link: REGISTER

The Habit of Prayer

As faith community, we are invited to talk with God in prayer. But, if we’re honest, prayer can be challenging, awkward and uncomfortable. Most of us wrestle with sentiments like:

  • I don’t know how to pray or what to say.
  • Is God even interested?
  • The silence of prayer is uncomfortable for me.
  • It’s hard for me to ask.
  • You don’t know what I’ve done.

This Lenten season we invite you to the third floor each week for a six-week journey into the habit of prayer. God’s Spirit and guidance has infinite ways of communing with us. It can be in a dream, a book, a word, a simple and quiet knowing within. We only have to pay attention and to be open.  Sometimes it may feel difficult to know how to start. With this in mind, each Sunday during Lent a new prayer station will be added to the third floor, which will invite you into a conversation with God. An image and scripture as well as guidance in different prayer practices will be available. There will be tools you can take home to help you use this practice in your home.  These stations will have options for all ages and serve as an invitation for you to ready your hearts for the celebration of Easter. Friendly for all ages!
