At Grace Church, kids are given the space and support to be themselves. They will be greeted with smiles, not shushes. They will be embraced with open arms, not told they are making too much noise. 

Jesus had a special place in His ministry for children. We strive to follow His example in our youth ministries and honor their many gifts!


Sunday School at Grace UP Church takes place during the worship service, offering a fun and engaging youth- focused Christian education program to kids ages 3-12. Children are invited to join their adults in the sanctuary at 11 a.m., and after the Children's Moment, they leave for Sunday School with our teachers.

We read Bible stories as part of an overarching lesson, participate in music together, and often complete a craft that provides hands-on reflection of the lesson.

Our Sunday School program runs during the normal school year, and during the summer, children remain in worship with their adults.
