Service Times

Special Needs Ministry

At Grace Kids we love to welcome kids with all abilities to participate in our programming. We have a Grace Kids Buddy program available upon request for kids who might need individual attention on Sunday mornings. See below for more information and a Buddy request form. Our desire is to provide a Buddy for each child who would benefit from this program, but we may need time after a request is submitted to find a volunteer to partner with each child. We are also able to offer a sensory room (located at the Southwood Campus) for families who need that resource. Filter by campus to see who to contact if you feel this might be a good option for your child.

Snack & Allergy Info

If your child has a food allergy, please let us know. Early Childhood classes do have a snack time, and those snacks may include plain Cheerios, Goldfish crackers, animal crackers, pretzels or fruit snacks. Filter by campus to see what is specifically offered at each campus on Sunday mornings.

Classrooms & Curriculum

Early Childhood Ministry is divided into classes by age which are led by screened, trained leaders. We begin introducing curriculum in our TWOs class to help them catch their first glimpse of who God is. The curriculum is an annual cycle of Bible lessons that is repeated each year as the child moves up through THREEs and FOURs to continue building a solid foundation of Biblical truth.

Serve

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. Please fill out this request form so we can begin the process of finding a volunteer to partner with your child on Sunday mornings.

Worship

5th and 6th graders join together for a time of worship and prayer before a large group lesson.

Small groups are the heartbeat of Grace 56. Each small group is a place where 56ers can have open discussions about life using the Bible as their foundation.
