Grace Kids

Equipping Kids To Change The World &
Helping to Grow Spiritually-Healthy Families

1. Love Jesus (Acts 16:31)
Our heart is to guide kids into a relationship with Jesus, where they choose to accept Him as their Savior and Best Friend. To choose to truly follow Him with all their body, soul, and spirit!

2. Know Jesus (John 17:3)
We want our kids to really know their Savior! We start by teaching them about His Word, about learning and applying scriptures to their life, how to fast and pray, by showing them how to be worshippers, and by continually growing their faith and trust in Jesus.

3. Share Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20)
Our mission is to share our greatest gift, Jesus, with the world! We want our kids to love God, love people, and love the world.  This happens by serving in our church, in our community, and supporting missionaries around the world.

WE ARE FAMILY-FOCUSED

Grace Kids and Impact PreTeens are part of the Family Life Ministry at Grace. We are committed to helping grow strong and spiritually healthy families. Some of the ways we do this is by equipping our kids and youth to change the world through their relationship with Jesus, by having a multi-generational partnership from parents to grandparents, by engaging and supporting our community, and by offering groups, classes, and events that continue to build the family foundation.

PRAYER IS ESSENTIAL

We believe prayer is essential in raising up a generation of spiritual warriors, which is why we have our War Room Sunday’s that are a hands-on, practical way we teach our kids and preteens how to pray, how to listen to the voice of the Lord, and how to make prayer a foundation in their life.  As the kids and preteens take a moment to ask God what He wants them to pray about, they learn to hear His voice and pray for topics such as families, community, government, missions, and healing.  We know that their prayers not only change their life, but the lives of those around them!

OTHER MINISTRIES IN GRACE KIDS…

SuperKids
It’s important to us that every child have the opportunity to be a part of Grace Kids! For families of children with special needs, our SuperKids ministry provides a supportive way for us to partner with parents to connect their child with a SuperKid Volunteer.  This volunteer helps provide a welcoming environment for them to learn and grow in the Lord.

Ignite Worship Team
Our Ignite Worship Team and camps teach and engage our kids and preteens in how to be authentic worshippers through music, dance, and living their lives as an act of worship to God. This ministry is a popular one for kids of all ages!

Community Outreach
We reach out to our community through homeschool fun days, grace movie nights, serve days, freedom conferences, and large events throughout the year.  Kids always have a blast on our giant playscape, carousel, and train.  Grace Kids Adventure Park has become a great way to connect and serve families in our community.

Partnering Together

We believe parents to be the most powerful influence in their kids’ lives! That’s why our goal is to partner and come alongside our parents to help and equip them in building a strong Biblical foundation and worldview in their home.

 

How Do We Partner Together?

  • We encourage parents to establish church as a consistent part of their weekly schedule to help their kids build relationships, and to establish church as an essential part of their lives as they grow into young adults.
  • We send home our “Kid Connect” pages, that as they fill them out, helps to reinforce the Biblical lesson and principles that were taught in their service.  Once the child fills out this page, they bring it back the next Sunday for 25 KidBux to spend in our Kid’s Store!
  • We send home our Family Connect pages that inform the parents what we are learning, and lays the foundation to continue the discussion at home with the whole family. 
  • We offering groups and classes that promote spiritual and Biblical growth in parents and kids.
  • We inviting parents to partner with us by joining our Hero Squad Team!  This allow parents to example a life of serving, and gives them the opportunity to leave a spiritual legacy not only in their kids, but in generations of kids!
What are the age breakdowns?
  • Small World (Birth-2yr)
  • Tree House (3-4yr)
  • Happy Trails (5yr-1st grade)

It’s my families first time visiting Grace Kids Adventure Park. Where do I go first?

We love seeing new faces in Grace Kids! Every first-time guest is given a special sticker at check-in to let us know they’ve never been here before. Our staff team, volunteers, and student leaders recognize these stickers and will go above and beyond in helping your child feel right at home from the start. From start to finish, we want the process to be easy for you, and for your child to feel welcome and have fun.

Will my child feel welcome and safe?

We are parents, too, and we know that nothing is as important as the safety and security of every child. God has entrusted us with caring for your children and we are humbled by this privilege. Here are some of the things we do to keep your kids safe and secure:

  • All children must be registered the first time they visit one of our campuses or areas.
  • Every child and parent will receive a security tag with a randomly generated security code. If you’ve already registered, this is computer generated upon check-in. These tags must be matched when you come to pick up your child. If you lose a tag, we will ask for your driver’s license and fill out a lost tag form.
  • During service, all area doors are locked and only those with a security tag or accompanied by a team member are allowed to enter.
  • Every staff member and volunteer in Grace Kids has been screened by an outside investigation agency and passed a criminal background check.
What is the check-in process?

You may check in your child at any available check-in station throughout Grace Kids. After swiping your driver’s license and selecting your child’s name, you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the nametag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

My child is new, can they stay with their friend even though they are in a different age group?

Our curriculum is adapted in each venue to best fit the age group being taught. Therefore, we encourage children to attend the service in their appropriate age venue. However, we want all children to enjoy their experience in Grace Kids. If a child is uncomfortable attending alone and wishes to attend the service with their friend, find one of our staff team members and we will see what we can do to make it a great experience for them.

How do you contact parents if they are needed during service?
