Here at Grace United Methodist the children are a vital part of our church. Not only are the children and their spiritual growth our main priority, but also guiding families in laying down their spiritual foundation. We are excited about the changes we have going on in the Children's Ministries. We have created an environment where children will see the word of God come alive through unique worship experiences. We offer an exciting experience that is fun, but most importantly full of scripture and truth that is relevant in the life of your family today.

Volunteer!

Will you join us in growing up the next generation for Christ? We are looking for men and women of all ages who are excited to partner with our parents and influence the spiritual journey of the kids in our community. What will you do this coming year to make a difference in the lives of kids in our community? There are many different ways to get involved. Take a look at all the opportunities below. Every moment you spend investing into the heart of a child is worth it.
