We welcome children of all ages to learn about God’s grace and have fun.
Grace Coastal Church believes in the covenant family. It is the responsibility of the parents working together with the church body to raise their children “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” We take this responsibility seriously! Our mission is “to come alongside parents and support them in the nurturing of their child by teaching Biblical principles that can be applied to everyday life.”
Sunday Kids Discovery Zone
Kids Discovery Zone is provided for children of all ages at the 10:00 a.m. education hour. We encourage all families to worship together during one of two services. GCC believes that parents are integral to establishing worship as a family heritage with their children. Sunday school or children’s church is a bonus.
Kids Discovery Zone is an exciting, active format to share God’s truth with our children. The program is for children from 4 – 12 years old. An alternative interactive program is provided for children 2 – 3 years old.
For young parents who wish to keep their children with them, we have a room across from the pastor’s office for young parents and their children. There are speakers and rocking chairs for your convenience in this area.
Sunday Children’s Church
Children’s Church (4 years old through 3rd grade) is provided for families at both Sunday services. While we encourage parents to teach their children through worship, this alternative provides an age-appropriate message for our children. Children are dismissed for the children’s church before the start of the sermon. It is an option for parents with children through 3rd grade.
Nursery for infants and toddlers is provided at all Sunday Services.
Special events are planned throughout the year with families and children in mind. Keep a lookout for events such as our Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Fall Festival, caroling at Christmas, Sports Camp, family tailgates, and more.
