K-5 Discovery Club
Grace’s K-5th grade Discovery Club begins Sunday, September 12th! This weekly program will take place on Sunday mornings, between worship services at Grace. Children will gather from 9:50-10:20 am for a multi-age program to include music, Scripture, crafts, and learning activities. Not only are we filling in the gap between services, but this 30-minute kids’ time will help bridge the gap between church and family, bringing Jesus’ love to life as we build relationships within our faith community. Contact Brita for details or to volunteer: brita@boldrecklessgrace.org

FAMILY TIME ON-DEMAND

Beginning in March, Community of Grace will release a pre-formatted Family Time event every 2nd/4th Sunday. These segments are designed for families to self-navigate through “What’s in the Bible?,” an all-age curriculum that teaches Bible basics through fun videos (by Phil Vischer of Veggie Tales), learning games, and quizzes.

Family Time is just one of the ways Grace supports parents in their role as faith-formers! Each segment takes less than one hour from start to finish. Sessions 1-10 are already available on-demand. Click below for instant access to past episodes today!

FAMILY TIME EPISODES 1 – 10
