We love children!
But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14
IN THE SANCTUARY
Worship is for all ages, and we love children at Grace Lutheran Church! Children of all ages are always encouraged to worship the Lord with their families. All children (and moms and dads) are welcome to come forward for the Children’s Message at our Sunday services.
Children’s church (offered during the sermon at 8:30 AM and 10:45 AM worship) and Sunday School (9:45 AM) are back! We will be using the Youth Room and adjoining classroom for both.
Children attending children’s church and Sunday School in person have been doing an amazing job social distancing in their hula hoops and wearing their masks. Thank you parents for your encouragement and behind the scenes preparation. We will continue to wear masks in September during Children’s Ministry.
We have a staffed nursery for children ages 0-3 next to Trinity Hall. Your children are always welcome to remain with you for worship or with our attendant in the nursery. The nursery is available during Sunday worship, fellowship and Bible class times.
September Sunday School
Families still have options for Sunday School! Children are now welcome to attend in person or you can continue to join us on Facebook Live. If you are not able to join us, you can pick up an at home kit from the white bookshelf in the narthex (across from the women’s bathroom). The at home kits will be in gallon sized Ziploc bags. Grab the bag with the date you know you won’t be with us in person and you should have the supplies needed to participate along with us!
Volunteers are always needed to help us with this growing ministry. Please contact the church office if you would like to help!
