At Church of Living Grace, children are treasured and valued!

As a family-oriented church, Children’s Ministry is an integral part of our church. Our Vision for Children’s Ministry is to assist parents in connecting children to Jesus.

Matthew 19:14 says,

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these

We want children to know and experience the deep love of Jesus, and to understand that God has created each one of them with a unique purpose. Our goal is to partner with parents in teaching, modeling, and encouraging children to grow spiritually in their walk with God.

Through Sunday services, children’s Sunday school, fellowship, and special events and activities, children will learn to love the Word of God, experience the joy of fellowship, and be challenged to serve and share their faith with others.


Mission Statement: Partner with Parents in Connecting Children to God and Nurture their Spiritual Growth

The mission of our children’s ministry is threefold:

  1. To lead children toward knowing and accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior;
  2. To deepen their relationship with God;
  3. To encourage them to serve and share Christ with others.


  1. To teach children God’s word and apply it in their daily lives.
  2. To guide children into worshiping and praising our Lord.
  3. To encourage children into active fellowship in Christ’s body.
  4. To support parents in their roles as mentors of their children in following Christ.
