Grace chapel kids

Every child should be able to learn about Jesus in a fun, safe environment.

Sunday mornings are full of fun activities, Biblical teaching, and age-appropriate learning, including classes for children with special needs.

Parenting can be frustrating and overwhelming. We believe no parent should feel alone, which is why our ministry doesn’t begin and end on Sunday - but partners with you throughout the week.

Bring your kid on Sunday morning, use the conversation starters throughout the week, and feel more confident in talking with your child about what matters.

VBS at Grace Chapel!

Summer is such a fun part of the year filled with family vacations, time with friends, and VBS!

The Super Duper Super Heroes themed VBS is a 5-day Bible-based adventure for kids who are rising kindergarten through 5th grade!

The days will be filled with Biblical truth, games, snacks, and relationship building so your kids can connect with other children within our church body and the community.

It's happening Monday-Friday, June 6-10 from 9:00am-12:30pm at Grace Chapel. Oh, it's free!

Our Promise to You:

Your child’s safety. There are high security standards and practices to help ensure the safety of every child entrusted in our care.

Creative Biblical Teaching. Our lessons are Bible-based and anchored to the gospel of Jesus. We want every kid to trust in Jesus in a way that transforms how they love God, themselves, and the world around them.

Age-Appropriate Learning. Each phase of a kids life has different spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental needs. We recognize that Biblical truth needs to be presented in a way that is developmentally relevant to each age group if we want it to stick.

Relational Discipleship. We want kids to be in a small group of peers connected to a consistent adult who can guide their spiritual growth. When we put a trusted adult (beside a parent) in the life of a child, we provide an additional voice reinforcing core values.

Preschool (Birth-5 years)

Introduce your little ones to the life giving story of Jesus through fun, active, hands-on activities and learning. You can plan on a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Our goal is that your child will learn:

God MADE me.
God LOVES me.
Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever.

Elementary (K-5th grade)

The Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care. We want to see every kid have an authentic faith and growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Small groups are a big deal in making this happen: they facilitate consistency, trust, and connection.

Before your kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these three things stick:
1. I need to make the wise choice.
2. I can trust God no matter what.
3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.


Special Needs Ministry

We believe the church should be a refuge for families with special needs. The heart of our Special Needs ministry is to see families come to church together, knowing every member of their family belongs. It's about children and adults having a safe place where they can be themselves, learn about Jesus, and know they are loved perfectly by their Creator!

There are several options for our kids with special needs to help them succeed at church including a sensory room and a traditional Sunday school environment with a little extra support from a consistent buddy.

If you are new to Special Needs, we ask you to take two steps: First, please fill out a Child Profile form, and second, please schedule your initial visitThis will give us a comprehensive look at your child so we can learn how to best serve your family.

Once this form is received, our special needs ministry director will reach out to schedule time to meet with you and discuss next steps

How Secure Check-In Works

Safety is our top priority. Our Welcome Team would love to help you at one of our four check-in stations. Here you’ll receive a number and your child will receive a name tag with a matching number. If you are needed during the service the number will appear on a display in the sanctuary and chapel. You will also need your number tag to pick up your children.

Grace Chapel volunteers are background checked to ensure the safety of your children.
