Grace Connections Children’s Ministries
Grace Connections strives to make “their” time together
the most exciting time of the week
Grace Connections Christian Education
Every Whirl lesson follows a four-part sequence:
Welcome, Hear, Respond, and Launch (WHIRL!).
Children will begin in the 9:30 am worship service and leave for class following the children’s message.
Each week after the children’s message in the sanctuary, kids and leaders start their time together by watching an animated video to set up the lesson. Next, they dive into the Bible lesson together, respond to the scripture lesson with creative leaflet activities, and circle up to review the lesson and pray before being sent out.
Classes for the following levels meet each Sunday during the worship hour:
Sprouts (1st– 2nd Grade)
Saplings (3rd– 4th Grade)
JAM: Jesus and Me (5th-6th Grade)
JAM provides a time and environment for 5th and 6th grade children to have fun and laugh while developing in their faith. JAM class begins downstairs in the JAM room at 9:30 am.
JAM Night is a fun, bonding night for 5-6th grade JAM kids and their friends. They meet once a month from 6:15-7:15 pm on a Sunday night. The date that JAM Night is hosted, there will be no morning JAM at 9:30 am. Instead, the kids are encouraged to attend church with their family and friends.
First Communion Instruction for fifth graders will begin in February.
