At Grand View, we strive to be a partner with you in the work of building and growing a spiritually GodStrong home. We have made a commitment to you and your children to help build relationships with God. We know that God will produce amazing fruit from the seeds planted in our children and youth, and we look forward to seeing that transformation!
Children, Youth, & Families Ministry
Our check-in system for children aged nursery-fifth grade:
- Parents need to go to a Check-In Kiosk before dropping their child off at Sunday School/CREW/etc.
- Follow the instructions at the Kiosk to check in your children–there will be a person there if you need help.
- Once checked in, the Kiosk printer will print out name tag(s) and a receipt.
- Put the name tags on your children and walk them to their class.
- KEEP THE RECEIPT! Children will only be released to a parent/guardian with a receipt. There will be a unique code on each name tag, and the same code will be on your receipt. (ie: T5Z)
- You can tear it in half if you like. One for each parent/guardian.
- You do not need to use the Kiosk to check out.
- Go to your child’s classroom and present the receipt to the Teacher/Leader.
- They will check the receipt with the child’s name tag to make sure they match, then dismiss the child to their parent/guardian.
- Parents with multiple children will need to keep their receipt to pick up their children from other classrooms.
Offered during Worship Celebrations and certain church events, our Nursery is perfect for infants to 3 years old.
- SUNDAYS: 9am - Noon
- VARIOUS CHURCH EVENTS: See individual event information for details on when the Nursery is available.
PreK-12 Sunday School (On summer break until Fall 2018)
Grand View teachers provide engaging and interactive activities that help children learn and apply God's truth to everyday life. We are excited to introduce our new curriculum this school year! ORANGE is a PreK-12 curriculum that helps influence our children toward a lifelong faith in Christ. Kids learn through memorable gospel-focused experiences that emphasize parent and small group relationships. The ORANGE curriculum helps us align our Children’s Ministry leaders with your family. The result? A lasting impact on the faith of our next generation.
