Children's Ministry at Grantham Church
Children's Ministry at Grantham Church

Children are a treasured and valued part of our community. We delight in their presence among us! It is our goal to reflect the love of Jesus to every child in a way that our church becomes a place where they come with gladness, knowing that here they are with people who truly care about them.Our most important goal is that children come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord and learn to share His love with others. These are the programs we offer to help our kids learn, love and grow this season:

Sunday Mornings


Loving care will be offered in the nursery


We will be using the Wee Wonder Curriculum.


We will continue to use the Shine curriculum and will be focusing on stories from Matthew (The Kingdom is Near)

CHILDREN'S CHOIR | 10–10:20AM (D20–22)

Children 3 years up through high school are welcome to join as we practice songs that will then perform in the worship service throughout the year.

Children aged 2-3 year old will be in D21, children aged 4-5 year old will be in C19 where each class will have a time of play and Bible Stories.

KIDS' OWN WORSHIP | 11AM (during the sermon)

Children in K-6th grade will join their families for the first part of the worship service. At the start of the sermon, they will be invited to a special worship service. Children in Kindergarten through 6th grade will meet in the area near the mailboxes. We will then split into 2 classes and move to the Children’s wing.
