Come Join Us
Elementary students meet during the 9:15 service only, and we encourage you to worship together as a family in the 11:00 service.
Here is a quick look at our typical schedule for GraceKids Elementary:
9:15-9:30 Welcome-"getting to know you" activities in the classroom
9:30-9:45 Bible Story-Bible passage of the day is taught by the lead teacher in the classroom
9:45-10:05 Large Group-worship and an application of the Bible passage is taught to all Kinder-4th graders
10:05-10:30 Small Group-discussion questions, memory verse practice, and a fun activity with college small group leaders
We are excited to have you join us! The welcome desk is designed to help you find the “right” spot for your child(ren). Greeters will ask you to fill out a registration form and for security reasons, you will be given a card and a pick up number. Most Sundays our volunteers can walk you to the classroom and introduce you to the teachers. We have a great team of well-trained staff to help answer any questions you may have.

We offer animal crackers, goldfish, pretzels, or rice chex . If there is an allergy, please let us know. We do not offer peanuts, but some of our snacks may contain the warning label.
For the protection of all children and workers, our ministry must decline admission to children with the following symptoms: fever, rash, persistent cough, diarrhea, fresh cold, runny nose, or other signs of illness. Thank you for your help in keeping our kids healthy!
We have security measures and polices in place to ensure that you are able to enjoy the worship service knowing that your children are safe. Our check-in process is part of our security process. When you check in, you will receive a set of stickers with a number that corresponds to your child. You must have a copy of the sticker to receive your child from their classroom at the end of the service.
Our volunteers have been through an application and training process. The volunteer's nametag tells you that they have completed this process, which includes an extensive application, reference checks, a background check, and an interview.
In the event that we need you, the number from your child's check-in sticker will be displayed in the worship centers. If you see your number, please return to your child's classroom where you can comfort you child and choose how best to proceed.
