Family Ministry

Engage Family Ministry

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

At Grace UMC Engage Ministry we help children learn about God and how to begin a personal relationship with Him. Children come to faith in Jesus through Bible lessons, memory verses, singing songs, prayer & thru fellowship.  Each week, they grow closer to God and learn more about His love for them.

At Grace it is important that we provide a fun and safe environment for children & youth. Parents can expect them to be safe while in our care. We want them to have fun and experience all that God has to offer, but we also understand that safety is a priority for parents. We do our best to create an environment where the younger generation can learn and grow without having to worry about their safety. We encourage you to review our Safe Sanctuaries Policy, which outlines our priority and commitment to keeping the youngest members of your family safe while in our care!
