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 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!

A typical morning includes connect time for our kids and their leaders, large group time focusing on praise & worship and a lesson, and small group time for deeper discussion and games.

Buddy Program

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.

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.
