SUNDAY SCHOOL

Children' discipleship groups meet every Sunday during our worship services at 9:15 am and 11 am. Children begin in the sanctuary for a time of worship and prayer before being dismissed to go to their classes during the 9:15 am and 11 am services.

Parents and caregivers can pick up your children following the service on the second floor in the building connected by the breezeway and then join together in the hall for treats and fellowship time.

JOYFUL VOICES

Joyful Voices is the name of our children's choir. The choir practices every Sunday for the first 15 minutes of our Sunday School time. Joyful Voices is led by our choir director, Mike Sanflippo.

KIDS OF GRACE

Wednesdays, 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm -

Active bible learning for children ages 3 years thru 5th grade. Kids of Grace works through themed camps helping children relate their everyday lives to what we learn about God. We love to play and have fun together as we build our friendships along with our faith.

You do not have to be a member of Grace Church to be a part of Grace Kids, ALL kids are welcome to come join us and bring a friend!! Kids of Grace does not meet in the summer, instead we invite you to join us for Wednesday at the Park - see schedule below.

POWERHOUSE FAMILY WORSHIP SERVICE

Meets the first Wednesday of every month from 5:00 - 6:30 in place of Grace Kids. This service is very casual beginning with time for play and snack on the church lawn. The service is geared for families unable to attend Sunday service or who just prefer a casual service with time to discuss family issues and Christian discipleship in smaller groups. Families come together to have a time of singing, prayer, and bible learning in our beautiful church sanctuary. Then we break out into parent groups, children's groups, and a youth group where we focus on ways to continue the bible message at home for the rest of the month. Follow-up for at home discipleship are provided on our Facebook Page. All are invited to join us!

BIBLE TALES FOR TOTS

Fridays, 10:30 -11:30 AM.

Storytime for children not yet in Kindergarten and their caregivers. We have 2 groups currently meeting at this time, one for infants thru age 2 which is more of a play group where the little ones play while the parents have time to support each other in the most important role - parenting! The second group is for children 3 & 4 years old where each week we read a bible story, sing songs, and do activities perfect for preschoolers and related to the story. The parents of this group also find plenty of opportunity to share and support each other. Bible Tales for Tots is open to all children in the community!

WEDNESDAY AT THE PARK

During the summer while the kids are out of school, we enjoy meeting togethr from 5:00-6:30 at the many parks & playgrounds throughout St. Johns County. This is a relaxing time for families to hang out at the park, letting the kids play while we adults get to know each other better. All families are invited to join us, grandparents, parents, youth, and of course you can bring friends too!
