Children’s Ministry at Grantham Church
Children are a treasured and valued part of our community. We delight in their presence among us! It is our goal to reflect the love of Jesus to every child in a way that our church becomes a place where they come with gladness, knowing that here they are with people who truly care about them.
Our most important goal is that children come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord and learn to share His love with others. These are the programs we offer to help our kids learn, love and grow this fall season:
Children's Learning Communities
Sunday at 9 a.m.
We teach our children to be Jesus’ light as we “dive into God’s Word.”
Preschool (ages 2–4): D21
K –1st grade: D27
2nd–3rd grades: D26
4th–5th grades: D25
Nursery care is provided for infants from birth through age 2 in the nursery (C11).
Sunday at 10 to 10:20 a.m. Children will learn worship songs that they will sing
during the worship service (approximately once per month). Rehearsals are in D24.
NURSERY AND PRESCHOOL CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Nursery care is provided for infants from birth to 24 months in C11. Preschool Children’s Ministry rooms are available for 2-3 year old in D21, and 4 year old in C19.
Kids Own Worship
Sunday at 11:15 a.m. Children in K-5th grade will join their families for the first part of the worship service. At the start of the sermon, they will be invited to a special worship service. Children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade will meet in the children’s multipurpose room (D20/22) and use the Gospel Project curriculum. Our 3rd-5th graders will meet in D25 and be using a variety of curriculums for Preteens.
Wednesday at 9 to 11 a.m. An oasis for moms of young children. Join us to connect, relax, laugh, cry, learn from others who have “been there,” and pray together. Our gatherings offer a safe and secure place to share and support one another in love through all the joys and challenges of this busy stage of life.
Meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month in the youth room (C15-17), beginning on September 4. Childcare is provided in the nursery and in C19.
SING & PLAY
Friday at 9:30 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. An indoor play experience in the fellowship hall for the whole community. We welcome toddlers through pre-kindergarteners and their favorite adult play partners. With plenty of room to run around and eight different activity centers, we can pretty much guarantee fun for everyone! Each of the two 45-minute sessions includes a 10-minute circle time, during which children and their adults join together for fun songs, finger plays, and stories.
Sing and Play will resume Friday, September 20 and run through Fri., Dec. 6, 2019.
