Ways to Serve

Tide Pool
(ages 0-2)

In the Tide Pool, you will find the smallest of God’s children. Responsibilities include maintaining a safe and fun environment, spreading the love of Christ through songs and stories, and caring for the basic needs of the children.

The Ocean
(ages 3-Kindergarten)

The Ocean is an upbeat and fun place for children who are beginning to truly grasp the word of God. While serving in the Ocean, you may find yourself singing songs, teaching the wonderful stories found in the Bible, and playing fun games.

Early Elementary
(1st-3rd Grade)

In the early elementary years, children are quickly beginning to deepen their knowledge of God. Serving with this age group may include responsibilities such as teaching the provided curriculum, helping students navigate their Bibles, and creating a fun and comfortable environment for learning.

PreTeen
(4th-6th Grade)

The Pre-Teen ministry is a fun and exciting place for your PreTeens to come and take the step to come to know Christ as their Savior and take that relationship even deeper.

Welcome Center

Serving at a Grace Kids Welcome Center is an excellent way to get connected with the families that attend Grace. Responsibilities may include registering new families in our computer database, assisting with check-ins, and helping parents to navigate their way around Grace Kids.

Administration

Grace Kids is dedicated to providing students with fun games, crafts, and lessons that expand their knowledge of God and His Word. An administrative team member would be someone who can help on a weekly basis with photocopying and organizing curriculum, prepping craft materials, and other miscellaneous administrative tasks.

Cleaning

Grace Kids values having clean, healthy classrooms for the children to learn and play in. Being a member of the cleaning team would entail disinfecting and cleaning toys, tables, countertops, and other surfaces in the rooms on a weekly or monthly basis.
