Children's Ministry

Leading children to be rooted in Jesus, to grow in His love, and to branch out to serve others.

  • GRACE place

    GRACE Place is our Sunday morning discipleship time for children in kindergarten through 4th grade.


    GRACE Place is going to look a little different this school year.  We will be working with a "hybrid" model.  If you plan to attend in-person GRACE Place, please remember to register for the 11 am service. An identical lesson will also be available at the conclusion of each Sunday's online worship service and individually on our website for at-home viewing.  Discussion questions and family activities will be emailed to families each week for home discipleship.  Please email Janet at janetyoung@firstpresgj.org to be added to our mailing list.


    During GRACE Place, we will be "Journeying through the Bible."  This will be a chronological journey to help our kids see the whole story of God's love and grace and to find their place in that story.

And then the kids will be challenged to do something about it! No registration is required.
