Children's Ministries

Jesus said, "Let the litte children come to me."  The importance of children in our church, and in our world, cannot be overstated. At Grace, we celebrate the presence and engagement of children in all aspects of our Christian community.  From quality childcare to Sunday School classes, children in worship, children in music ministry, special events just for children and families throughout the year, and an attitude of love and acceptance toward all youngsters--including those with special needs--children at Grace are embraced for not only the teens and adults they will one day become, but for the treasured beings they are today. Grace is an inclusive, welcoming church. Our Open Doors Ministry provides support to individuals with special needs, so that all persons can worship and fully participate in life at church
