Children's Ministry

Welcome to our Children’s Ministry!

We are glad you have joined us. Families and children are warmly welcomed at Granville Chapel. Join us on a Sunday soon!

KingdomKids

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

-Matthew 19:14

KingdomKids is a Sunday morning program for children in Preschool through Grade 5. It is an upbeat, Bible-based morning that helps kids build a foundational relationship with Jesus. Children begin the morning with their families in the Worship Service at 10 am in the main sanctuary. Then, at about 10:30, all children in Preschool through Grade 5 are invited to go upstairs with Leaders to the KingdomKids morning!

Mighty KingdomKids (Grades 1 through 5)

KingdomKids uses the BIBLE for its curriculum!

Join us for an upbeat morning Bible-teaching, singing, games, activities and crafts!
Dedicated, responsible adults and youth lead the children through a morning focused on growing deeper in their walk with Jesus and in their friendships with each other.
During our Large Group time, we welcome the children, sing, play a game and introduce and teach the Bible passage and main point for the day. During Small Group time, children have a chance through discussions, crafts, and other activities to think further and learn more about the Bible passage and main point of the day. Through this important time in their week, they have an opportunity to discuss, ask questions, and grow closer to Jesus. They also have an opportunity to get to know their Small Group Leader and other children in a more meaningful way.

Once a month we have a “Service Sunday” morning. We work as a group on a practical service project that helps others in need. Through our connections with local missions like UGM and oversees missions working with children and families, we are able to “put our faith into action” and contribute towards the needs of those less fortunate than ourselves.

Mini KingdomKids (Preschool and Kindergarten)

Come and learn about the Bible and Jesus in our friendly Sunday morning program!

Kindergartners and Preschoolers start out in a Large Group where they are welcomed and sing together. Then children are invited into age-appropriate small groups where, through multi-sensory activities, they learn about our awesome God, His son Jesus Christ, and His Word the BIBLE. Leaders are friendly and dedicated to helping your child feel comfortable and secure during this special time together.

NURSERY TIME

Welcome to our Nursery! Caring and responsible adults and youth care for your babies and toddlers up to age 3 while you participate in the Sunday morning service. Parents are welcome to leave their children in the Nursery for the whole service, starting at 9:50 am. Sometimes our little ones just don’t want to let us go! If parents wish to stay with their babies for the first few times, they are welcome to do so. We have live video of the worship service (and fresh hot coffee!) for you if you are not able to sit in the main sanctuary. As well, all sermons are recorded and are available online.

OTHER ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN

During school holidays and on some Saturdays we host additional activities for children. Bible Fun Times, Games Afternoons, or Craft and Activity Times are just some of our ideas. Let us know if you have an idea for a group activity.
