Welcome

We see every child as an important member of the church family. The Bible teaches us that each member has a grace(gift) which is essential for the building up of the body of Christ. We believe your child is a gift from God; not just to your immediate family, but to the entire church family as well. Our goal is to have opportunities for our children to connect with God in an authentic way through songs, Bible study, and group activities in our GraceKidz ministry which starts in our lower level  at 10am (check-in prior to service). In keeping with our desire to include our children in our church services, we invite our children back into the main service for baptisms and communion. 
 
Our GraceKidz ministry is led by Pat Sexton who is supported by a dedicated team of team leaders and teachers working with your children.
 

What are my children learning?

For the next academic year (Sept ’21 to Aug’22) we are working with a Simply Loved curriculum. Our Gracekidz are going through age appropriate classes using a series called “Psalms” which teaches them the fundamentals of our salvation in Jesus through the book of Psalms. Children are invited to bring an offering as part of their worship. The money they bring is dedicated to help mission related work within our community or another part of the world that ministers to children (This semester we are giving towards the Chevy Chase Community Center in Indiana PA and their winter kids programs). Parents are encouraged to be involved in the church and home based training of our GraceKidz through home worksheets, scripture memorization, family discussions, etc… If you have any questions regarding the material or would like to help serve in the children’s ministry, contact us via email at gracekidz@wgfellowship.org

During our family services we provide a Children’s service that includes worship, actvities and Bible lessons with application.

We currently have three age groups:

1. Green Room– Ages 1 to 2

This toddler play group is for kids aged two and under.
 

2. Orange Room – Pre-K to 1st Grade

Once a child turns three, they graduate to the Orange room where they have a fun time with simple lessons and activities in a semi-structured manner.
 
3. Purple Room –  2nd to 5th Grade
Our 2nd grade to 5th Grade class involves more structure as Bible truths are unpacked in bit more depth with lessons and engaging activities.
 

 

Infants under the age of 1
We provide a nursery (nursing mother’s room) for mothers to feed their infants in privacy or allow them to crawl around and play. This room is located in the rear of the sanctuary. During the message portion of the service, an audio feed of the service is provided for those using this nursery.
 
For fathers (male guardians) who are caring for infants, the cafe area is available to be used. Due to the privacy concerns for nursing mothers in the nursery, males are not allowed to use the nursery. At Word of Grace, we encourage fathers (male guardians) to share in caring for their children as well utilizing the alternative space near the cafe.
