Grace Anglican Church’s Children’s Ministry welcomes all children and
provides a safe, nurturing environment to learn about the character and
nature of God, what it means to be a human being in a fallen world, and the
Good News for them in the person and work of Jesus Christ. It is the desire of
Grace Anglican Church that children in this ministry repent and believe the
gospel, and that the Lord would direct their hearts to the love of God.
On Sunday mornings, our main children's ministries are our Sunday School and our Nursery.
Beginning at 11:00 am (and running until 11:45) our Sunday School meets in the library.
Sunday School at Grace Anglican Church engages kids in a gospel-centered, structured, and active learning environment. Sunday School is fun! Bible lessons are taught using Lifeway's Gospel Project curriculum, where kids hear, week in and week out, the good news of Christ's finished work for this worn-out world. Every week teachers lead our kids through a catechetical "mini service" based on the Book of Common Prayer (2019). It's a fun, kid-friendly liturgy that assists families in training their children in the basics: the Lord's Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments. Martin Luther taught the importance of this in the introduction to his Shorter Catechism: "...with young persons...teach them first of all the Ten Commandments, the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, etc., according to the text, word for word, so that they can repeat it after you and commit it to memory."
At Grace Anglican's K-6 Sunday School, kids learn in a classically Protestant, content-rich environment. Every week, kids have fun learning the profound Biblical stories of the Good News of Jesus Christ along with the basics of our faith through singing, hand motions, older kids reading to younger kids, antiphonal recitation, and most importantly: through the caring, interested, and devoted attention of each Sunday School teacher and volunteer. Come join us this week!
Details about this session:This Fall, our topic is Out of Egypt. This series of lessons helps kids discover God’s amazing provision and protection. God used Joseph to provide for the Israelites, setting the stage for a glorious demonstration of God’s power to deliver. God raised up Moses to rescue His people from bondage in Egypt. He saved them from physical captivity like He would one day save His people from spiritual captivity by sending Jesus, a Deliverer greater than Moses. As the people of Israel traveled toward the promised land, God made a covenant with them and instructed them how to live holy lives in an unholy world. God also gave them rules for worship. God’s law sustained their relationship with God until His perfect plan was revealed through Jesus Christ. Sessions include Bible stories from Genesis, Exodus, and Leviticus.
Children of all ages are always welcome in the service; there are tables at which you can sit as a family and coloring sheets are provided. For your convenience, our nursery (which opens at 9:15 am) is available for children who have not yet started kindergarten. Our attendance is large enough that our nursery is split into two rooms, ages 0-3 in one room and 3-5 in another. In order to keep the care-giver-to-child ratios even, sometimes 3-year-olds are split between the rooms. A nursery staff worker will be available at check-in to help you figure out where to go.
We have a computerized check-in system at the nursery; each child will receive a sticker with a unique alpha-numeric code that matches a sticker given to the parent. We have background-checked and trained nursery staff. The safety of your child is our first priority.
