What's Going On
Anderson Grace Kids Summer Celebrations

July 1, 2020

Join Anderson Grace Kids during July for some fun summer celebrations! Email for any questions.


Want to teach big Truths to little hearts? Come be a part of Grace Kids! The relationships built with our kids and families through our volunteers are the heart of our ministry. Whether you want to serve once a month or several times a week, there is a spot for you!


AWANA is a non-denominational children’s ministry with the goal of teaching boys and girls about the gospel of Christ and training them to serve the Lord.

Special Needs Ministry

Grace Kids desires to extend open arms of love to every child who walks through our church doors. If you have a child with special needs of any kind, we would love to do as much as we can to accommodate his/her needs and to make him/her feel welcome.


As a part of our Special Needs Ministry, Grace Bible Church offers a FREE respite night for families of kids with special needs. Drop off your children (with special needs AND siblings from ages 1 to12) and get away for the evening to enjoy dinner, rest, or just some much-needed peace and quiet in your home. We will have activities geared toward all ages and abilities! We meet on the last Friday of months September-May, from 6:00-8:30pm at the Southwood Campus.
