Welcome to Grace Kidz!

Grace Kidz is the place your child will enjoy fun and engaging lessons taught by volunteers who have been screened and trained to teach your child the truths of the Bible and show them the love of God in a variety of ways.

Grace Kidz partners with parents to raise children who love God and walk in His ways. Together, we are endeavoring to “train up a child in the way he should go, so when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Our mission is to lay a foundation for a lifetime of discipleship.

    We are excited you are getting to know us through our website. We hope to meet you in person really soon! Here is some information that might make that first in-person visit easier.


    Service Times

    Our children’s classrooms are staffed, beginning 15 minutes prior to the first class time for that department. You may check-in your children electronically up to 30 minutes prior to the first class’s start time.

    Our service times are:

    Sundays
    8:30 for Infants through Pre-K 5’s
    9:45 a.m. for Infants through 6th Grade

    Location 

    Grace Kidz is located on the North side of the church. There are two convenient locations to park and enter the church.

    Visitor Parking is located in the front (East side) of the church. When you come in the main doors of the church, Grace Kidz is located on your right, just past the Welcome Desk.

    Family Parking for new and expectant families is located on the North side of the church near the back. When you enter through the canopy doors, Grace Kidz is located on your left.


    Registration

    On your first visit, please check-in at the Children’s Welcome Desk, located in the Main Level Grace Kidz Hallway.

    A Grace Kidz Volunteer will walk you through the check-in process. They will ask you for pertinent information, such as your child’s name, birthdate, and if your child has any allergies. Once a nametag is printed, a volunteer will walk you to your child’s classroom and explain how to pick up your child using your unique security code. Feel free to ask them any questions you have!

    First Time Guest Registration


    We know getting out of the house with children can be hectic!

    Your son refuses to wear socks. Your daughter won’t wear anything but her Cinderella dress from last Halloween. And your baby spits up all over your new shirt. Now, you are running late. On days like that, you can rest assured that there is a loving and patient Grace Kidz Volunteer waiting to take your children as they are, whenever you can get here! If you forget to bring a diaper or sippy cup, we have extras on hand for you to borrow. You can then relax in your own “grown up class,” knowing someone else is lovingly taking care of your children for a while.


    We value family worship, too!

    Children of all ages are welcome to attend the Worship Services with their families. We have special children’s bulletins to keep your child occupied, but focused on God’s word.


    Here are some resources you might find helpful as parents

    Nursing Room: This room is reserved for nursing moms only and is found just inside our Purple (Infant) Room. You may come and go as needed. There are comfortable gliders and a Monitor, where the Worship Service is live streamed.

    Cry Room: This room is just outside the back right side of the Worship Center and can be used by all members of the family. The Worship Service is live streamed, so you can still be a part of the service, while you tend to your child in a more relaxed atmosphere.

    Changing Stations: There is a Diaper Changing Station in all our public restrooms. You are also welcome to use the Changing Station in our Purple (Infant) or Blue (Toddler) Rooms, where you will have access to wet wipes and diapers, if needed.

    Family Restroom: In addition to the Public Restrooms throughout the building, there is a Family Restroom, located near the North/Canopy Entrance.


    Here is a link to FAQs that will help answer other questions you may have.
