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:

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

SUN, OCT 30 @ 5:30 PM

It’s time to start planning how you can make this a wonderful event for our church and neighbors. What theme will you decorate your trunk this year? If you need ideas see Denise Fogelsanger or look at the blue “Trunk or Treat” folder at the Children’s Welcome area. If you did a trunk before but can’t this year and still have your supplies gathered up, consider loaning them to someone else.
