Children & Youth Ministry

We have big plans for children at Grace this fall! Here are a few:

Kickoff Party

August 28th is our kickoff party for all things at Grace! During our 9:30am combined worship service, we’ll have a special blessing for our children as they return to school, and we’ll also distribute backpacks of goodies. Following the worship service, there will be a ministry fair in the parish hall and all sorts of activities on the campus for kids–including the famous bouncy house! We hope to see you there!!

GK Choir

Starting Wednesday, September 14, the Grace Kid’s (GK) choir will begin weekly rehearsals.  This group of children, led by our choirmaster, Mrs. Nancy Taylor, learns to worship through song and leads worship once per month (October-May).  For more information, contact Nancy or Molly!

Children’s Sunday School

Beginning Sunday, September 18, we invite all children, grades 1-5 (ages 6-11) to join us for a nine-week Sunday school program. We will meet during the 9:30am hour and close just before the 10:30am worship service. Youth grades 6-12 are all encouraged to attend and assist. Contact Molly for more information.

Family Nights

We are very excited to announce that we will have a monthly family night September through December. Our theme for our fall family nights is to “love our neighbors.” To learn and live this commandment, we will be doing various things each night after a scripture lesson, including: a board game night (September 14), an ultimate Frisbee and soccer night, a movie night, and a family fun night at Bo’s in Lenoir. We will provide dinner for each of these nights but we do ask families to contribute $5 per person as they are able, to help with the cost of food.

Middle School Bible Study

We are in the early stages of planning a middle-schoolers-only Bible study to begin in October.  More information to come!

For more information about this and other programs at Grace, contact Molly Franklin, Director of Children & Youth Ministries, at (828) 437-1133 or molly.franklin19(at)gmail(dot)com.
