FAQ's

Grace Kids meets every Saturday at 5PM and Sundays at 9:30 & 11AM.

The Grace Kid’s welcome desk is adjacent to our Treehouse play set. As you enter the front doors you will proceed straight and take a left once reaching the worship hub. Greeters and guest service volunteers will be happy to assist you.

On your first visit you will stop at the Kids Ministry welcome desk to register your child(ren). Our wonderful greeting team will help you through the process and show you to your child’s classroom. If you would like to get a jump on registration, you can pre-register by filling out the Registration Form and bring it with you when you arrive.

Your child’s safety is our number one priority. We take lots of steps before kids arrive to keep them safe. Every toy and environment is cleaned and sanitized, and every volunteer is screened with an interview and background check. Our whole team — from staff members to small group leaders to safety personnel — are trained to keep your kids safe.

The treehouse is open for use during the week and on the weekends when the building is open. Please be sure that children are always supervised by an adult or qualified babysitter while visiting the treehouse. Please make sure that your child(ren) are playing considerately with others so that all children can enjoy the treehouse.  Children over the age of 2 years are not permitted in the toddler area.  We ask that no food or drink is taken into the treehouse.

The Buddy Ministry provides one-on-one teaching and friendship to children with special needs. Buddies help children participate as much as possible in the most appropriate classes for that child. If your child would be blessed by having a buddy with them for services or other events, please contact disabilities@gfc.org.

In consideration of all the kids and volunteers, please refrain from bringing your child to the Kid’s Ministry if they have had a fever or contagious condition within the past 24-48 hours. For more questions please contact jwilliams@gfc.org

Nursery- ages 0-24 months – children in the nursery will promote to the next classroom based on their developmental abilities.

2 year olds through 5 year olds – we promote these age groupings twice a year. Once at the end of summer when all other age groups are promoted and once in the winter. We base our cut off dates by classroom attendance so that we can keep classrooms well balanced in attendance. By keeping our cut off dates consistent this assures that children will always be promoted with the same group of kids through their whole progression through Grace Kids.

Kindergarten through 5th grade – Promote once a year at the end of summer.
