Our Nursery through 5th Grade Kid’s Ministry seeks to provide a safe, loving and fun environment where children are taught about God and His Word. Our curriculum has been carefully selected to be Bible-centered and age appropriate. We believe children are capable of learning great truths and that learning can be fun, relevant and applicable to each life.  

Sunday Mornings @ Grace

To ensure your child’s safety we require anyone who works with children to complete Washington State and national background checks.

Additionally, when you come to the nursery, 2 & 3’S class or 4 yrs. through Kinder classes, you will be given a “claim ticket” for your child. The number posted on that claim ticket can be used to alert you quietly during the worship service if you are needed to attend to your child. Workers will not release your child to anyone but you.

Nursery | Room 110 - 10am

Any infant from birth to 24 months old is welcome to be in the nursery during Church Service hours.

2 years–3 years | Room 120 - 10am

4's-Kindergarten | Room 121 - 10am

These kids are welcome for Church Service hours.

Grades 1-5

For children from 1st thru 5th grade, we would love to have them join with the rest of the congregation for the first part of our Church Service until Children’s Church begins. 

Right before the sermon the children will be dismissed from the worship service to room 122 downstairs for our special Children’s Church class. 

Elementary age children are also provided a carefully crafted Children’s bulletin that provides activities that directly relate to what will be learned during their church time. These bulletins are available at the Welcome Center.  

What is Awana?

Awana is a nondenominational ministry that assists churches in reaching children with the gospel of Jesus Christ and training them to serve Him.  Reaching our young people is very important. did you know that 85% of all people who accept Jesus Christ do so by age 18? Research shows that children who have been consistently involved in an Awana club maintain a strong, vibrant relationship with Christ throughout their college and adult years.
