Grace Nursery

When determining our mission and vision for our GLC Nursery program, we imagine  “whole child” care. What is whole child care?  It is care for the spirit, the body, and the mind. This is what the GLC Nursery strives to provide, both for the children who enter our doors, and the parents who bring them there.

We hope to help your child lay the foundation for a lifetime commitment to Christ. Each time your child visits Grace, expect them to have a fun and interactive experience learning about God’s love for them.

Age Requirements: GLC Nursery is open during worship services for children birth to four years. For special events the nursery staff may provide care for children up to age twelve.

Handbell Ministry

The handbells ministry of Grace is dedicated to engaging children, youth and adults in the mission of creating beautiful music for God’s glory through handbells well rung.
