Service Times

Early Childhood programming is for ages 6 weeks - PreK, and meets during both the 9AM and 11AM services at Creekside. Check-in for Early Childhood is at the downstairs greeter desk in our Education Wing.

Classrooms & Curriculum

Creekside Early Childhood Ministry is divided into classes by age which are led by screened, trained leaders. A typical morning for younger classes includes play and meaningful interaction in a safe, loving environment. The older classes have a routine that includes a Bible lesson with memory verse, hands-on activities, snack time, and play time. The THREEs & FOURs classes meet together to do worship in a large group setting.

Special Needs Ministry

For our children with special needs, we have a Buddy program where we give your child the individual attention that is needed. If you feel this might be a good option for your child, please contact CreeksideGraceKids@grace-bible.org.

Snack & Allergy Policy

If your child has an allergy, please let us know and pick up a yellow allergy bracelet from the check-in area for your child to wear. The following snacks are offered at Creekside on Sunday mornings: Infants - bottle or food from home only; Wobblers - plain Cheerios; TWOs - Goldfish crackers; THREEs & FOURs - Mott’s fruit snacks or Goldfish crackers.

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.

Free Time

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

Worship

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

Big Group Time

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