Children's Ministries

GraceKidslogo1

 

We are passionate about God's children!

One of our core values is children and the children's ministry of Grace Anglican Church partners with families to lead children in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.  Dr. Jessica Jones, Director of Christian Formation, runs all of our outstanding programs. Each area of children's ministry provides a developmentally appropriate, gospel-centered environment for your child. Few things are more exciting than seeing a child begin to understand and embrace how much God loves them, provides for them and protects them. We minister to each child in a way they understand their unique purpose and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus.

Children's programs are held in the Administrative Building (located next to the Sanctuary). We take safety and security of your children very seriously. All of our childcare employees are American Red Cross Child & Youth CPR qualified and have had background screenings. 

Fun facts about Children's Ministries at Grace Anglican

  • Designed for parents and kids - The children's classes meet at the same time as the adult services. So while you are enjoying the worship and teachings, your children are experiencing God at their own pace.
  • Bible-based teaching - All children programs receive age-appropriate Bible lessons that are presented in a way that is fun, memorable, and enables your children to learn.
  • It's safe - You can relax knowing that your children are in good hands. All staff members are CPR and First-aid Certified and have had background screenings.

For more information, contact our Director of Christian Formation, Dr. Jessica Jones, or call the church office at (904) 541-1234.


Sunday Programs for Children

Nursery (from birth through age 2) - available at the 9am & 11am services 

Our team loves to care for your little ones while you worship God in the sanctuary next door. At sign-in, each child will be given a sticker with a specific number on it. The same number on a stub will be given to the parent/guardian. Parents will also provide a mobile telephone number and note any allergies for the child. If an issue arises with your child, workers will text the parent/guardian at the mobile number provided. Parents are welcome to pick their child up prior to communion or after the service has concluded and will be required to show the ticket stub that matches the number of their child.
