We’ve crammed LOTS of valuable information onto each page, to give you tools for parenting each of your children in their current phase of life.

What is PHASE?
A phase is defined as “a timeframe in a kid’s life when you can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their future.”
As we move toward reconnection in the coming months, Grace is gearing up to provide resources for parents and relationship ministry for kids of every phase!

It’s an exciting time to be a Grace’r!


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!
