Children & Youth Faith Formation Ministry
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!

Christians Renewed Every Wednesday (CREW) – (All Welcome)
Join us for a special time for both families and individuals–ALL ages–to come together for an evening of food, worship, and small group learning. We learn to serve God by serving one another through Grand View.
5:30pm: There is a kid-friendly meal each week ($2 donation/person suggested). Everyone eats together, then we all help serve: clean up and move the tables to create the worship space. This is a great time for kids to learn how to serve God by learning from & helping others.
6pm: Following the meal, the Youth Worship Team leads us in upbeat, praise music, and we hear a relevant & inspirational message from Pastor Tom.
6:30pm: We break at 6:20pm to move to our various small group areas which begin at 6:30pm for a time of meaningful connections and learning. Small groups include:
Nursery (ages 0-3yrs) - located in the Garden room
Preschool (ages 4-5yrs) - located in the Maple room
Gr. K-2 located in the Treehouse room
Gr. 3-5 located in the Evergreen room

There is something for everyone so the entire family can participate, Worship God, and enjoy a fun midweek experience of learning more about God and each other.
