  • Grove Kids Sunday Mornings

    Preschool through 5th Grade

    Sundays, Sept-May, 10:30 am

     

    Kids are invited into the Biblical narrative by hearing and creatively responding to stories through art, crafts, games, and construction.

    Elementary - Come to worship with their parents for 10-15 minutes, and then transition to Kids Programming.


  • Stepping Stones

    Stepping Stone experiences, workshops, and blessings provide markers of faith.  When kids participate in something specific to a Stepping Stone, they receive a stone with a symbol to remember that experience:  each time they take or serve communion, watch a baptism, lead a prayer or song in worship, participate in a workshop, or engage in service.  Kids and parents are often given blessings in worship to mark the milestone.

  • Family Grove Gatherings and Special Events

    Throughout the year, various gatherings are offered, sometimes just the kids and sometimes parents and kids.  Be on the lookout for field trips, special meals, Sunday Fundays, Gaga Ball tourneys and more.  Kids and parents build relationships and connections through these events.
