What to Expect

Southwood Early Childhood

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

Service Time

Early Childhood meets at Southwood during the 9AM & 11AM service in our Nursery Wing.

Classrooms & Curriculum

Our Infants, Crawlers, and Walkers classes are in the nursery. In our TWOs, THREEs, and FOURs and Kindergarten rooms, we focus on a specific Bible lesson each week with a craft/activity included. Our THREEs and FOURs learn this lesson in a group setting with songs, dance, and a large group teaching.

Special Needs Ministry

For our children with special needs, we have a Buddy program where we give your child one-on-one attention. 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.

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!

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.

Sunday Mornings

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

Each campus has a Grace 56 worship leader who leads a live worship time.

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.
