Snack & Allergy Policy

If your child has a food allergy, please let us know. Early Childhood classes do have a snack time, and those snacks may include plain Cheerios, Goldfish crackers, animal crackers or pretzels. Please check the campus webpage to see what is specifically offered at each campus.

Classrooms & Curriculum

Early Childhood Ministry is divided into classes by age which are led by screened, trained leaders. We begin introducing curriculum in our TWOs class to help them catch their first glimpse of who God is. The curriculum is an annual cycle of Bible lessons that is repeated each year as the child moves up through THREEs and FOURs to continue building a solid foundation of Biblical truth.

Free Time

FUN is an important component for ministry in Grace 56. Free time involves 4-square and time to hang out with friends and leaders.

Worship

5th and 6th graders join together for a time of worship and prayer before a big group lesson.

Big Group Time

Every week a leader kicks off the lesson with a 3-5 minute teaching point that prepares 56ers for small group discussions.
