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!
Offered during Worship Celebrations and certain church events, our Nursery is perfect for infants to 3 years old. Located in the Meadow room.
SUNDAYS: During the 9:30am and 10:45 am Worship Celebrations
VARIOUS CHURCH EVENTS: See individual event information for details on when the Nursery is available.
PreK-12 Sunday School
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.
PARENTS: Stay Connected with the "Parent Cue” app. The Parent Cue App helps every parent do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future. Download the Parent Cue app here.
