What to Expect

Southwood Early Childhood

If you have any questions, email SouthwoodGraceKids@grace-bible.org.

Early Childhood:
9AM & 11AM

Service Times

Early Childhood programming is for children 2 months old to preschool, and meets during the 9AM & 11AM service at Southwood. Our Welcome Desk is just inside the main doors where our Greeters will help you get set-up and directed to the correct classrooms.

Classrooms & Curriculum

Southwood Early Childhood Ministry is divided into classes by age which are led by screened, trained leaders. A typical morning for infants, crawlers, and walkers includes play and meaningful interaction in a safe, loving environment. The TWOs, THREEs and FOURs classes have a routine that includes a Bible lesson, hands-on activities, snack time, and play time.

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 also have a Sensory room, which is a self-contained classroom where children with special needs are loved, known, and enjoy learning about Jesus during the 9am service. If you have any questions or feel either of these may be a good option for your child, please contact SouthwoodGraceKids@grace-bible.org.

Snacks & 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 and highlighted in yellow. The following snacks are offered at Southwood on Sunday mornings: Infants - bottle or food from home only; Crawlers - plain Cheerios or Goldfish; Walkers, TWOs, THREEs, & FOURs - Goldfish crackers or aniaml crackers.

Serve

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

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!

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

Grace 56

Sunday Mornings

Grace 56:
9AM

Connect Time

FUN is an important component for ministry in Grace 56. Connect time involves 4-square 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 our Elementary students for a time of worship and prayer before seperating and doing their own 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.
