The Bible says, “Behold, children are a heritage of the LORD…” Psalm 127:3
At Grace Bible our ministry is to reach our community for Jesus Christ. To accept Christ as Savior and learn to live for Him. This training helps young children to grow in Christ and lay foundations for their future service to the Lord!
Besides ministering to children, this ministry provides opportunities for men and women to be leaders in the total church ministry.
We have partnered with AWANA Clubs International to accomplish these goals through designed clubs and programs for all ages.
This is a program for 2 and 3 year olds.
In Puggles, children are welcomed each week with play time, songs and simple crafts and activities. Leaders present age-appropriate lessons using large, colorful teaching cards, finger puppet plays and more. Lessons teach and reinforce four basic biblical precepts:
• God Made Everything
• God Saw That It Was Good
• God is Love
• Give Thanks
This is a two-year preschool program, which requires parental participation. Designed for the two years prior to kindergarten, Cubbies includes a cute character named Cubbie Bear and a zoo motif. Cubbie Bear encourages children as they achieve in handbooks. Handbooks provide Bible memorization curriculum and stimulating activities designed specifically for preschoolers. The Hopper Handbook (first rank) and Jumper Handbook (second rank) each basic Bible truths about God and the Bible along with popular preschool concepts of colors, shapes, numbers, and letters. “Cubbies” clubbers display their awards on their Cubbies vest, which they wear to club each week.

Characters in the handbooks study outer space, spend a summer at the beach, act in a video set in Israel and go on a great outdoors vacation.
This material challenges middle-school, 7th and 8th grade, students to consider their destiny in Christ and pursue it through life application of God’s Word
Here at Grace Bible, our place of ministry is to call all teens to put their faith in Christ, follow Jesus’ example of discipleship. A call to a lifestyle – one characterized by making a decision for Jesus not in a single, emotional moment, but by making that decision over and over again, every day. Passing on the faith from one generation to another.
We take very seriously our part to provide a safe environment for children. We have developed and implemented a “Policy and Procedures Manual” for our entire church. This includes screening workers, training, and supervision for all areas of ministry, staying current with legal counsel, professional advice and other resources which continue to be of help to us.
