Our Children's Ministries
There are always exciting things happening for the children at Grace Baptist Church. Our teaching is centered around God’s Word and we have exciting Sunday School classes for children of all ages! Your children can get involved in any of our sports, activities, camps, and outings. Click any content item to the right to read more about each area or aspect of our Children's Ministry.
During our Sunday school hour, we have each class divided up by grade to provide a better opportunity for our kids to get to know their peers on a more personal level. Each class is instructed by a screened and trained teacher that has a passion in working alongside our children.
While the adults are worshiping in the main auditorium, the children have their own worship service with singing, preaching, object lessons, Scripture memory, and contests. It is a lot of fun as well as rewarding. Junior church is for students in grades 1 through 6. The beginner church leaders minister to the four and five year olds.
Awana is an international, Bible-centered children's ministry which has been used at Grace Baptist Church for over 30 years. The Awana program at Grace Baptist Church is for preschool (K3) through sixth grade children. The program trains children with the gospel of Christ by memorizing bible verses, listening to counsel messages, and having fun during game time. As the child goes through the program, they earn awards for what they accomplish. The adult leadership sets the example in a Chris-tian environment showing their love for their Savior. Over the years, we have seen children saved and in their adult life come back to the program as adult leaders. The Awana program starts at 7:00 pm and ends at 8:30 pm on Wednesday nights. We also follow the school year for starting and ending the program. We have special events such as the Awana Grand Prix, Awana games, Bible quizzing, Mother/daughter and Father/son nights, as well as other exciting activities. The program changes each year so that the child is exposed to different activities. A child may start at any time during the year, but the leadership would love to see them finish through the sixth grade knowing more about Jesus and possibly even accepting him as Savior.

If your child loves sports then we have some wonderful opportunities for them to get involved! We offer intramural leagues in a Christ honoring environment for any child between the ages of 4-12. The goal is to teach them the rules and regulations along with developing their skills. Soccer is on Saturday mornings in the fall and baseball is during the week in the springtime. We have an open registration for any child eligible.
Every summer we have a week dedicated to reaching out to boys and girls in our community. Our goal is to reach the lost and continue to mature young believers in their walk with the Lord. Each year we have a different theme and guest speaker.
Each summer we take our Jr. and Sr. High teens to a Christian Camp. The purpose of summer camp is to get our kids away from the pressures, distractions, and routines of everyday life. Camp provides a godly environment where they will be challenged to spiritual change, encouraged in their walk with the Lord, and confronted with their need of Christ. They will also make new friends and have a lot a fun! This is one of the greatest opportunities for life-changing decisions in the life of a child. We STRONGLY encourage every parent to have their child(ren) go to summer camp. It is a spiritual investment you won't regret.
We are excited to be one of the few churches that continue to run a full bus ministry! We have had the opportunity to serve our community in this capacity for over 40 years and continue to have dedicated workers that would love to see you come!
Our goal is to bring young people and adults alike to worship alongside our congregation on Sunday mornings. Beyond the normal services, we have numerous exciting events such as Super Teen Sunday, Beat the Heat Sunday, and various contests throughout the year.
