Preparing for Communion Class

In the Spring, we will offer a 6-week session to help children prepare for their first communion. Because of the disruptions to in-person worship over the past several years, the 2022 class will be open to any family who would find this class helpful. For children who will be taking their first communion after the completion of the class, a zoom meeting with an Elder is scheduled, and for children who are ready, they are welcomed to the Lord’s Table at our Easter worship service. A partner adult (parent or designated family member/friend in a parent’s absence) is required to participate alongside the child(ren) taking this class. For more information, contact Linn Haralson at linn@graceseattle.org.

Resources for Sunday Worship Service

10:15 AM every week

  • Children are always welcome to remain in the service
  • Nursery/Toddler Class (6 months–3 years) is located downstairs in classroom #117, children need to be signed into KidCheck, a secure children check-in system to participate in class.
  • Sermon Time Class (4 years-2nd grade): Children are dismissed through the double doors at the back of the sanctuary right before the start of the sermon. They will return after a 40 minute lesson to the sanctuary to participate in the conclusion of the worship service. Children need to be wearing a printed KidCheck name tag to join the class.
  • Nursing mothers' room located in the back of the Sanctuary, fit with cushioned rocking chairs and small toys for infants
  • Family room is provided in the upstairs chapel with a livestream viewing

A Kids Order of Worship is available in the lobby each week during in-person worship. It is meant to help children engage with the sermon material more personally.

Lap desks and coloring materials are often available in the lobby for children to borrow for use during worship. Bringing objects or activities from home can provide and even add to their ability to focus, depending on the child.

Volunteers

Grace Kids is always looking for caring people to volunteer with our children. Our program is dependent upon adult (over age 18) volunteer availability. An application, training, background check, and vaccination against COVID-19 are required for staff, teachers, and volunteers working with children in our Grace Kids ministry.

Youth volunteers (age 11-17) are welcome to apply as classroom aids and younger volunteers (ages 8 to 11) may serve if supervised by their parent or guardian (who have also been through the volunteer training process.)

For questions about Grace Kids and volunteering, contact Miss Linn at linn@graceseattle.org
