Kid's Ministry

 Our most important rooms belong to our children.  We will walk with you and support you as your child develops from the crib to the cap and gown.

What putting the family first means for us...

As parents, you know your children best.  It is also your responsibility to raise them and help them grow in all areas of life.  To help support you on your journey, our children's ministry always seeks to help parents  and serve families in any way possible.  We would love to meet you and see how we can serve your family.

We have an amazing children's programing and nursery but you are more than welcome to keep your kid's in the service with you if you think that is what is best for your kids.

Kid's Ministry On Sunday Mornings:

Here is what our children's ministry looks like on a Sunday morning during both of our services.

 
 

Kid's Church

Kid's church is a whole lot of fun with a purpose.  Our Kid's Church runs during the 8:30 and 11 AM worship service.  Kids join their parents in the sanctuary for the first three songs of our worship service and then are dismissed and escorted by parents to the Kid's Church classrooms located upstair in our Children's Ministry Wing.  We are here to serve you and you are more than welcome to keep your kids with you during the entire worship service.  At Kid's Church your kid's will be cared for by our well equipped and background checked staff.  They will provide your children with developmentally appropriate activities and lessons all while creating a fun and safe environment for your child to grow and learn.  

The Guppy Room

The Guppy Room serves as a transitional room for children ages 3-4 years old.  This room was developed to provide more structure for your child as they develop.  Children in the Guppy Room participate in age appropriate activities in a loving and caring atmosphere.  A typical lesson consists of a Bible Story with an accompanying craft.  The activities are fast paced to help maintain attention and participation.  A snack is also provided. Kid's seem to really love our guppy room and its staff.  You can take your preschool aged kids to the guppy room after the third worship song during both of our services.

Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery! We have qualified, vetted staff to help you and your infant or toddler have a wonderful experience at Grace Free Church. Our nursery serves children 3 years old and younger.  Our Nursery is a bug free zone! If your child has a fever, runny nose, cough, diarrhea, unknown rash, discharge from the eyes, illness being treated with antibiotics for less than 24 hours please keep them at home.  We look forward to seeing them when they are feeling better.

NURSERY SCHEDULE --> 8:20 - Nursery opens for our 8:30 service.  10:50 - Nursery opens for our 11 service.

Going To Make A Difference In Our Community

Grace Free Church's Student Ministry is designed to give Jr. and Sr. high students  a safe place to be honest, to search for God and to be themselves. We strive to love God and love others. We do this by helping teens develop a deeper relationship with God, with adult staff and with their peers.

What is AWANA?

Awana is a nondenominational ministry that assists churches in reaching children with the gospel of Jesus Christ and training them to serve Him. Awana Clubs International supplies programs, materials and training for more than 12,000 churches in over 110 countries. Their message to churches is simple: We're here to serve you with a ministry that is all about fun with a purpose — to win and grow kids for Christ!

 That’s why Awana offers a series of clubs and programs geared to the needs of a particular age or grade. As a vital part of our local church ministry, Awana clubs and programs effectively reach young people with the good news of Jesus Christ. Here at Grace Free Church our AWANA ministry works with other ministries to give our children a well-balanced emphasis on knowing Jesus and how we can live for Him and serve Him.

Each AWANA ministry is broken into three general areas:  Game Time, Handbook Time & Large Group Teaching Time.  Children are encouraged to memorize scripture and are taught about Jesus and how to live a Christian life.  Children earn badges and awards for memorizing Bible verses.  Children can also earn AWANA shares which they can redeem in the AWANA Store for all kinds of cool prizes.  

THURSDAY NIGHTS: 6:30pm - 8:00pm at Grace Free Church.

Groups for AWANA kids:  Cubbies - 3 & 4 year olds; Sparks - K through 2nd Grade; T&T Adventure - 3rd & 4th Grade; T&T Challenge - 5th & 6th Grade

 Contact Kathy our Awana Commander kathleenlesher@comcast.net for more information.
