Welcome to GCKids!
Kids programming is available on Sunday mornings at both the 9:30 and 11:00 AM services. We have age-appropriate learning environments for kids in each of our 3 kids ministry departments: Nursery, Preschool and Elementary (birth to 5th grade).
GC Kids is looking for some volunteers in the nursery, pre-school and elementary areas. If you love Jesus and love kids, we’d love to serve with you! Click here to find out more and get involved!
Cross Training Class
October 10 & 17 at 11 AM
Cross-Training is a two-week foundations class offered for kids, 1st through 5th grade, interested in learning more about faith in Jesus. The class will cover topics such as sin, salvation, the Gospel message, and baptism.
Each child will receive a class workbook, and parents are encouraged to join us, especially if your child may need help with some of the reading or writing.

Serving at GCKids
Volunteering in Kids Ministry can make a huge impact in planting seeds and growing a child’s faith from a young age. Serving is also fun and a great way to connect with others at Grace Chapel!
There are always needs in Kids Ministry in our nursery, preschool, and elementary departments. Volunteer leaders typically serve 2x per month and always serve with a partner in varying roles. Our age-appropriate programming utilizes The Gospel Project curriculum to teach the Bible, in addition to worship songs, crafts/activities, and playtime.
To learn more about the opportunities available to serve, contact Pastor Jamie at Jtressen@gracechapel.org.
