The Grace UMC KidsClub is a safe pre-youth service and activity program for children grades 4th-6th grade as well as rising 3rd graders that have turned 9. KidsClub offers many opportunities throughout the year for fun, fellowship and deeper faith-building.   Your kids will participate in many service based activities that focus on helping the community. It is our goal to help the children of Grace UMC build a solid foundation rooted in serving others.

We offer a wide array of activities including our annual backpack drive where we provided backpacks for 155 children in the Gaithersburg community! There are so many events and projects- we can’t wait for your kids to join us and start connecting with their peers through fun, fellowship and service!

KidsClub is active yearly from September through June.  Here is a sample list of events we participate in every year.  Many KidClub events are open to children of all ages (listed in bold with an *) and only require a family member to participate alongside.
