Early Childhood:
9AM & 11AM

Service Times

Early Childhood programming is for children 2 months old to preschool, and meets during both the 9AM and 11AM services at Anderson. As you enter the foyer, the Early Childhood hallway is directly to your right. If your child has attended programming before, please check in on the computers upon entry. If it is your child's first time here, our Greeters are waiting for you at the Children's Welcome Desk just inside the double doors and would love to help you get checked in!

Classroom & Curriculum

Anderson Early Childhood Ministry is divided into classes by age which are led by screened, trained leaders. A typical morning for Infants, Wobblers, and Toddlers includes play and meaningful interaction in a safe, loving environment. The TWOs, THREEs, and FOURs classes have a routine that includes a Bible lesson with a memory verse, hands-on activities to reinforce the lesson, snack time, and playtime. In addition, the 3s & 4s classes meet together to do worship in a large group setting.

Snack & Allergy Info

If your child has an allergy, please let us know during check-in. The allergy will be noted on your child's name tag. The following snacks are offered at Anderson on Sunday mornings: Infants - bottle or snack from home; Wobblers & Toddlers - plain Cheerios; 2s - plain Cheerios or Goldfish; 3s & 4s - Goldfish or Pretzels

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. If you feel this might be a good option for your child, please contact AndersonGraceKids@grace-bible.org.

AWANA

Awana is a non-denominational children's ministry that meets during the school year on Sunday evenings. The goal of Awana is teaching boys and girls about the gospel of Christ and training them to serve the Lord.

Registration for Awana will begin in August!

Due to a limited number of leaders as we relaunch Awana, we will have limited spaces in classrooms and will be prioritizing Anderson families and children of Awana volunteers in registration. Once classes are full, there will be a waitlist until we have available spaces in classrooms. Email us if you're interested in getting involved or have questions!

FUN is an important component for ministry in Grace 56. Connect time involves 4-square, Gaga ball, and time to hang out with friends and leaders.

Large Group Time

Every week a leader kicks off the lesson with a 3-5 minute teaching point that prepares 56ers for small group discussions.

Worship

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

Small Groups

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.
