nursery & preschool

Our First Look curriculum for nursery and preschool phase children is designed to teach one key truth every month. Lessons and activities are designed to engage all 5 senses. The goal of First Look is for children to know before the age of 5 that: “God made me, God loves me, Jesus wants to be my friend forever!”

 

elementary

Our 252 Basics curriculum, modeled after Luke 2:52, is built around 3 basic truths that every child should embrace: “I need to make the right choice. I can trust God no matter what. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.” Children learn a new Life App and verse each month, which is reinforced by the stories and activities done throughout the month.

We believe that there are two powerful influences in this world: Church and Family. They exist because God created them to tell His Story: to tell the world who He is and what He has done and will do. Each of these two powerful influences has a distinct and essential task that God has designed them to do.

At Grace Chapel we want to connect with families to fuel faith in the next generation, because two primary influences combining together have a greater impact on a child’s life. Our Small Group Leaders want to partner with you to help your children grow their own relationship with God.

Here are some things you can do as a parent to stay connected and start “thinking orange:”

 
  

 

pray

for our partnership and for your children’s spiritual growth.
 

  

be consistent

about bringing your child every opportunity. Children need time to develop relationships with leaders and friends, and deeper relationships foster a better environment for spiritual growth.
  

 

communicate

with your children’s leader at the door and by exchanging contact information to share celebrations and milestones in your children’s faith, give reminders about allergies or custody concerns, provide helpful feedback, etc.
 
 

 

invite

your children’s leader to your children’s special celebrations, like baptism, birthday party, or special events at school.
 

 

use your talents

God has given you by 
 in our ministry. Your service enables other parents to attend to the spiritual needs of their families.
 

 

talk

with your children about what they’re learning in church and encouraging them to ask questions and go to the Bible for answers. Use the home resources we provide, listed above, as discussion starters.
 
 
 

stay connected

to our ministry through the parent resources listed below.
 
 
 

celebrate

your child’s growing faith!
