The Mission of the Grace Kids Ministry is for every child to see church as a fun and safe place to come while being placed in the path of God in order to accept Jesus Christ personally as his or her Lord and Savior.  We provide kids with an opportunity to know the Bible and understand the events and teachings in it while encouraging them to think critically as they apply these truths to their own lives.  We want kids to become disciples of God, so they will worship Him and live the rest of their lives for Him.

"Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them, 
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." 
Matthew 19:14,Mark 10:14,Luke 18:16, Psalm 127:3(NIV)

Our Passion is to nurture the growth of children in these following areas:


  • knowing Jesus as their Savior
  • understanding and applying the Bible
  • worshipping God
  • praying
  • reading the Bible on their own
  • building healthy & respectful relationships
  • living in God's strength
  • sharing Christ with their friends
  • using money God's way
  • serving others
  • making an impact in the world

Our Role is to partner with parents in this growth process.  Parents are uniquely positioned to foster their child's spiritual growth while other people such as their small group leaders or Sunday School leaders help. We want to walk alongside parents as they guide their children on this exciting spiritual journey. Our teachers / leaders are encouraged to communicate openly with parents as we strive to support and encourage them in raising their children to become men and women of God.

We invite and encourage you to check out the many ministries we offer for parents, families, and children of all ages.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kid's Ministry Director Nancy Gillentine at (440) 243-4885, ext. 136 or
