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:
