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 and the Bible lesson in a large group setting.

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, THREEs, & FOURs – goldfish crackers.

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.

ReTreat

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.
