Growing Into Grace

Grace Kids

Grace Kids Lead

Hello! My name is Sarah Shea and I am the Children and Youth Director here at Grace Church.

I consider ministering to your children not only my calling but also an honor and a blessing. I believe that a child has a very real spiritual life and it is my goal to nurture that when they are at Grace Episcopal Church. I believe faith is cultivated in community and it is my goal to help create space for kids to build meaningful relationships through praying together, reading together, and playing together.

Sunday School Even the youngest of us needs spiritual formation and our Sunday School helps families provide it! Grace offers a fun Sunday school for kids 4 years old - 5th grade from 9:15AM -10:15AM. This amazing experience for kids, will give them a chance to unplug and listen to stories about scriptural foundations. Kids will have the space to respond to faith in a way that makes sense for them and encourages them to move forward as they return to their lives during the week.

Growing Into Worship This worship opportunity for Grace “littles” is held during the 10:30 am Sunday service. Kids sit in the back pew before the 10:30 service starts and then join in the procession when the service begins. They move downstairs for the first part of the service to share in their own “Liturgy of the Word” as they hear a Bible story, reflect on it together, and offer their own prayers for themselves, their families and friends, and God’s world. They rejoin the congregation at The Passing of the Peace and join with us in Holy Communion.

Grace Kids FAQs

Grace has a nursery for kids age 0 – 2 years old that is available Sunday mornings from 9:00AM – 12:00PM. The nursery is located at the top of the steps when you first enter. We have a team of skilled nursery workers who have gone through the Episcopalian training as well as background checks. If you are new we will ask you to fill out some basic information about your child including, age, allergies, etc. There is not a “check-in” system for Sunday School or GIW (Growing into Worship) but, we would ask you to fill out a short form so we could learn more about you and your child.

Here at Grace we believe that everyone plays a vital role, including the littlest members of the church. We believe that having children in a service is not a distraction but rather adds to the worship experience. We do offer a kids “church” during our second service called Growing into Worship.

Growing Into Worship (GIW) is a program where kids aged preschool through 2nd grade are invited to experience the Liturgy of the Word (first part of the service) in the Children’s Chapel and rejoin the congregation for Communion.

Let us know at check-in if your child has any allergies. We do not offer snacks in the nursery. We do have a snack time during Sunday school and Growing into Worship. If your child does have an allergy we will ensure that there is no snack with any of your child’s allergens. We do offer snacks that are gluten free, nut free, and dairy free.
