Where do I take my children?
Children's ministry is one of our core values and we create an environment where they are safe, known and loved by their leaders and their peers. 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 background screenings. Each parent signs their child in to the age-appropriate room. For more information, please contact our Director of Family Ministry, Jessica Jones, or call the church (904) 541-1234.
Sunday Programs for Children:
Nursery (from birth through age 2) - available at the 9:00 AM & 11:00 AM 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.
7th - 12th grade students are invited to join their parents in the sanctuary for the 9:00 AM and the 11:00 AM services.
(9:00 AM and 11:00 AM Pre-K - 6th grade) (Children at 11:00 AM service meet in the following age appropriate classrooms: Pre-K - 1st, 2nd - 3rd, 4th - 6th)
Children will be walking through the bible from Genesis to Revelation, and learn how the entire story of the Bible reveals God’s plan of redemption through Jesus Christ.
Children's Choir (PK4- 6th Grade) 10:15 AM - 10:50 AM

We are Grace Students.
Our Mission is for every student to know and radically love Jesus & others so that they become "change-makers" for God's kingdom in Clay County.
Grace Students, rising 7th Graders through 12th Graders, meet on Wednesdays from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM in the Barn! Wednesday nights include snacks, hang time, worship, teaching and connection with other students. Our goal on these nights is that you encounter Jesus, become a part of our family, and grow spiritually.
Grace Students serve! We make an impact in our community by loving and bringing hope to the “down and out.” James, the Apostle, says that “If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking daily food, and one of you says to them ‘Go in peace, be warmed and filled,’ without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also, faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
Current Teaching Series
Romans 6:4 tells us that
“We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”
The phrase “newness of life” describes an invitation to a totally new kind of life. To become a Christian is to be transformed! When a person invites the Living God to be Lord, everything must change. So what does this change look like? The new sermon series, beginning the Wednesday after Easter Sunday, is titled “Entering Into the Newness of Life.” The following Scriptures (with Youth Group dates) will be the subject of our large group time, with a deeper dive into the text during Life Groups:
April 19th: "Life in His Name" (John 20:19-31)
April 26th: "Encouraged At His Table" (Luke 24:13-35)
May 3rd: "Hearing The Shepherds Voice" (John 10:1-10)
May 10th: "Doing Even Greater Works" (John 14:1-14)
May 17th:"The Unforced Rhythms of Grace" (John 15:1-11)
May 24th: "Eternal Life is Knowing God" (John 17:1-11)
*The Barn is a small facility located at the back side of the parking lot and is used for many of our student ministries.
