At Grace UMC, we believe Family Ministries should do much more than provide great ministry opportunities and environments for children and teens. We believe Family Ministries should engage parents and embrace the whole family. Because of this belief we are developing a ministry that will partner with parents to provide care, support and resources as they raise their children from infancy through adolescence. We want to REACH whole families by creating and fostering environments in which Children, Teens and Parents can GROW IN LOVE for God and others. We want to EQUIP whole families by providing opportunities for Children, Teens and Parents to GIVE OF THEMSELVES in service, LEARN TOGETHER through Bible Studies and programs, and encouraging families to GROW IN GRACE.
Following Deuteronomy 6, we walk together through the wisdom, laws, and stories of our faith.

Mustard Seeds

Nursery & PreSchool

 Our Nursery Department strives to provide a bright, cheerful, safe, and loving environment for your children while you attend our Service. The foundation we seek to lay during your child’s early years (birth to 3 years) is built on Christ and involves lots of love, sharing, patience, cooperation and learning about God.




Elementary School

The Children’s Ministry at Grace ranges in age from 4 years old to 5th Grade. Our desire is to teach our children basic Biblical foundations through age appropriate curriculum, as well as show them the love of Jesus Christ through our teachers and staff. We believe that all students, no matter what age, are important and a vital part of worship within our church family.
