The primary way people experience Christ-Centered friendship and “pastoral” care at GRC is in a Growth Group. These are gatherings of 8-12 people representing various backgrounds and stages of life who meet regularly in homes to share life and consider what the Bible has to say about life.
If you’d like to find out more or connect to a group, or if you’d like help choosing one, you can choose to provide some basic information, and we can suggest a Growth Group meeting within days. You can do either by clicking here to give us your details and interest.
Outside of corporate worship, joining a Growth Group is the single best way to get connected into community to encourage your growth and the growth of others at GRC. We hope that everyone in our church can participate in one.
Grace Kids is our children’s program for infants to 5th graders at Grace Redeemer Church, and is led by a team of staff and volunteers who are passionate about teaching kids the Gospel and showing them Jesus! Our goal is to provide a safe, warm and interactive environment where kids can grow in their relationship with Jesus and in community with other children and their teachers. We aim to walk alongside parents in growing their kids into followers of Jesus.
We hope that you and your kids will come to visit us soon! When you arrive, come visit our Grace Kids check-in desk to register your children and find out about the fun going on that Sunday! We offer engaging programs for your children from birth to 5th grade each Sunday.
Nursery (0 to 3-years-old)
The Grace Kids nursery program serves children birth through three years old. During the service, your child will experience fun learning activities and cooperative play with other children his or her age. Our professional childcare staff and caring volunteers will make sure that your child is nurtured and well-cared for during their time at church. During the Sunday school hour at 10:00am, the two and three-year-olds will have their own Sunday school class full of songs and engaging activities that will teach them more about Jesus!
Pre-School and Elementary (4-years-old to 5th graders)
Our Grace Kids Preschool and Elementary program serves four-year olds to 5th graders. We offer programs during the Sunday service and the Sunday School hour at 10:00am.
Your PreK through 3rd grade children will worship alongside you during the first part of each worship service. Right before the sermon they will be dismissed to Kids Club. In Kids Club they will sing, hear Gospel-centered Bible stories, and play games and do crafts that teach them about Jesus.
During the first service, our 4th and 5th grade students are invited to attend “The Bridge,” our special class designed just for them! The Bridge is designed to build community and an increased love for Jesus among our older elementary kids by engaging ice breakers, focused instruction and lots of time to discuss how to practically live out the Gospel. Bridge Kids also take part in doing service projects together.
At 10:00am we have Sunday school classes for 4-year-olds to 5th graders. Through the Gospel Project curriculum, we teach the Bible in a way that always points to Jesus! In Sunday school the kids watch creative Bible stories, learn Bible verses and engage in games and activities that help them to learn about Jesus at their level. Our 5th grade kids take a more discussion-based approach in Sunday school that helps them to feel safe to ask questions and build community as they grow in the Gospel together.
These are the stories of God’s grace in the lives of God’s people here at Grace Redeemer Church. These stories are little snapshots of Gospel transformation in people’s lives. And, we all need that at some level, don’t we? We all desire that at some level. At times, we all doubt that God can change us—or a spouse—or a situation. Or a church, or a community, or even a nation. But, these are real testimonies of God’s grace in people’s lives. Some of these may strike you as ordinary, and that’s good if it helps you relate to the story, and it reminds you that anyone can change by the power of God. Some stories may strike you as extraordinary, and that’s good too if it strengthens your ability to believe that God can overcome any obstacle in your life and can change anything.
As you listen to these stories, may the Holy Spirit reveal to you more clearly what your own Grace Story is all about. And, as you hear these testimonies, and as they’re all different, I hope you remember that which we all have in common. It is that: by grace, you have been saved; through faith and not of your own doing; it is the gift of God, not the result of works; so that no one may boast.
