Join us each Wednesday from September through May for AWANA and IGNITE. Both of these ministries teach the truth of God's Word, ministering to the hearts of our children and teens--the next generation.
AWANA is a highly organized, international ministry that has been adapted to fit the unique needs of GraceLife Church. Our leaders develop friendships with the children in their clubs (Cubbies, Sparks, and Truth & Training); and assist them in their understanding and memorization of Scripture. AWANA stands for Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed and is based upon 2 Timothy 2:15.
Each evening consists of three half-hour segments:
Game Time: fun-filled games (outside when weather permits).
Handbook Time: small-group interaction and recitation of Scripture. This is an important time of friendship building with opportunities for leaders to disciple children and help them understand the Bible verses they are memorizing.
Council Time: group Bible study that exalts Christ, encourages them to honor others, and teaches obedience.
IGNITE is a ministry to students in grades 7-12 that stresses a sincere love for Jesus Christ and His Word. Our desire is to help them in their transition to young adulthood, making godly decisions in all of life. IGNITE is derived from Jeremiah 23:29, "Is not my word like fire?"
Our youth also meet regularly for Sunday school, twice a month on Sunday evenings as a Grace Group, and participate in a variety of activities. You can find us on Facebook. SS For Kids
We are very excited about our curriculum for Sunday School! Generations of Grace is a biblically based curriculum designed for children preschool through the sixth grade. Our classes are broken out into three groups: early childhood (preschool through first grade), early elementary (grades 2-4), and juniors (grades 5-6). Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the Old Testament historical books, the life of Christ, and lessons from Acts and Revelation. Generations of Grace is unique in its design to encourage a high degree of interaction between the student and teacher. Every week, children in each age range learn from the same passage of Scripture in a way that is appropriate for their respective age levels. We call this a "unified curriculum." A unified curriculum enables families to discuss a single passage together each week, reinforcing the lesson that children have learned in Sunday School. Our Sunday School classes meet from 10:45-11:30 AM after our corporate worship service.
