Kid Stuff@Grace!

June is a month of transition – saying good-bye to the school year, while looking expectantly to Summer and all the simple joys it brings! This Summer is especially joyful as life begins to return to some of what we once knew. In this sweet season of Summer, may you find some great opportunities for children to grow in their faith with us at Grace!

For more information about any of Grace’s Children’s programs, please contact Ms. Arleen, Director of Children’s Ministries at Grace.

Choir Camp: July 6-9, 2021

All rising 1st-5th graders are welcome to join Online Choir Camp 2021

Vacation Bible School (VBS): July 12-16, 2021

Join us for “Treasured VBS” as we embark on a virtual epic quest through hidden ruins, ancient caves, and dense jungles.

Kids will dig into action-packed, faith-filled adventures and discover God’s greatest treasure isn’t diamonds, gems, or gold–it’s them!!

Zoom Sunday School

A huge thanks to all who participated in our Sunday School Zooms this year! It was great to “see” so many of you, to stay connected and to learn and grow in God’s love together. We will take a break from Sunday School Zooms during the Summer months.

  • Preschoolers will gather on Zoom for a short Bible Story, craft and song with Miss Olivia!
  • Elementary kids will gather on Zoom for a time to check-in and chat in small breakout groups with leaders!
