Our top priority is the safety and health of your family as your children come to learn and enjoy fellowship together here at Grace. We are closely monitoring state and local recommendations from officials and health authorities as we offer services for children this fall. We will take additional precautions, such as added spacing, in addition to our cleaning procedures. Please see a full list of precautions and changes here. As we move forward, there may be changes to the upcoming calendar. This will be evaluated each week so please continue to check back for updates. For any questions, please contact Jennifer Lancaster.
We are passionate about reaching God's children!
One of our core values is children, and the children's ministry of Grace Anglican Church partners with families to lead children in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Jennifer White, Director of Children's Ministry, runs all of our outstanding programs. Each area of children's ministry provides a developmentally appropriate, gospel-centered environment for your child. Few things are more exciting than seeing a child begin to understand and embrace how much God loves them, provides for them, and protects them. We minister to each child so they understand their unique purpose and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus. Children's programs are held in the Administrative Building (located next to the Sanctuary).
- Designed for parents and kids - The children's classes meet at the same time as the adult services. So while you are worshiping and learning, your children are experiencing God at their own pace.
- Bible-based teaching - All children's programs receive age-appropriate Bible lessons that are presented in a way that is fun, memorable, and enables your children to learn. The lessons follow the biblical timeline so children can learn the full narrative of God's story.
- It's safe - We take safety and security of your children very seriously. All of our childcare employees have had background screenings, and every event has supervisors and teachers who are American Red Cross Child & Youth CPR qualified.

Sunday Programs for Children
Children's ministry programming is on Sunday mornings at our 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM services. Learn more about Sunday worship services here.
Nursery (from birth - age 2) - 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM Services
Our team loves to care for your little ones while you worship God in the sanctuary next door. At sign-in, each child will be given a sticker with a specific number on it. The same number on a stub will be given to the parent/guardian. Parents will also provide a mobile telephone number and note any allergies for the child. If an issue arises with your child, workers will text the parent/guardian at the mobile number provided. Parents are welcome to pick their child up prior to communion or after the service has concluded.
The Gospel Project (Pre-K - 6th Grade*) - 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM Services
Children will explore the Book of Daniel along with their families to correspond with an 8-week sermon series. After the Daniel series, the Gospel Project curriculum will be used to explore the Bible chronologically. Children will walk through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and learn how the entire story of the Bible reveals God’s plan of redemption through Jesus Christ.
*6th graders have the option to attend Sunday mornings with GraceKids in addition to attending Junior High youth group Sunday nights.
