It’s Just a PHASE, So Don’t Miss It!
If you haven’t already picked up a copy of the PHASE parenting handout for each of your kids this fall, visit the Grace Families Facebook Group for a downloadable copy! 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. If you’re not already a member of the Grace Families Facebook Group, request to join here: 
Paperwork for Kids & Youth
If your kids will be participating in Grace programs, you can fill out their paperwork online. 
Kids in grades K-5 meet 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. 

For more information, please contact Brita:

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!
Check out the PHASE blog for the “big picture” or contact Brita for details:

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!
