Young visitors to Grace

Grace Lutheran joyfully welcomes children to our worship services and church functions. Our Outreach Team has created “Children’s Blessing Bags” for children ages 10 and under. Each bag contains a coloring/activity book, stickers, colored pencils/crayons and a small Christian paperback book. The bags are designed to provide a Christ-based activity during worship and are to be taken home by the child.
