Raising up the Next Generation
Discipleship for Nursery thru High School


As parents God gives us a special calling to raise our children to follow Jesus, teaching them diligently throughout our day-to-day lives. We believe all of us are called to make disciples of all nations, including those in our nursery and classrooms. Grace partners with parents to disciple the next generation through The Word, prayer, fellowship, and community.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20 

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Our Heart for Sunday Mornings

Our volunteers and staff love Jesus and are excited to share Him with your children each week. They faithfully prepare for their time in the classrooms and look forward to welcoming your family on Sunday mornings. Our hope is for seeds to be planted in the lives of your children as we partner with you in discipling the children of Grace.
