Grace Church of East Dennis has a vibrant Family Discipleship program from birth through adult.
As Massachusetts continues the slow process of reopening business, schools and churches, it will still be quite some time before we are able to reopen our Nursery and Sunday School program. We feel it is appropriate that we adhere to the Governor's Safety advisories which is in keeping with the Apostle Paul's admonishment to honor those who are in authority. As soon as it is permissible and safety protocols are in place, we will resume our Nursery ministry and Children's Church program during the Worship Service.
Jesus took a little child and had the child stand among them. Then he took the child in his arms. He said to them, "Anyone who welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me. And anyone who welcomes me also welcomes the one who sent me. Mark 9:36-37 (NIrV®)
The Nursery Ministry at Grace Church seeks to show the love of Jesus to children (infants through kindergarten age) through Christ-like care. Our CORI screened nursery workers provide a safe, secure, nurturing environment for children while leading a time of worship and teaching about the goodness of our God. There is a check in/check out procedure in place for each child and a silent usher system to notify parents if they are needed during the service.
During our Worship Service there is child care available downstairs in the Infant/Toddler room. Infants and children (ages birth to entering kindergarten in September) may be checked in at 9:50 AM or anytime throughout the service as they are welcome to stay for the singing and then be brought down by their parents and signed in. Please don't hesitate to ask an usher or greeter for directions to these areas.
CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL
"The commandments I give you today must be in your hearts. Make sure your children learn them. Talk about them when you are at home. Talk about them when you walk along the road. Speak about them when you go to bed. And speak about them when you get up." Deuteronomy 6:6,7 (NIrV®)
Our Sunday School program for children is called, DiscipleLand (www.discipleland.com). Our heart's desire is that our children will "hide God's Word in their hearts". The Scripture tells us that if we, "train up a child when they are young (to know and trust the gospel of Christ) when they are old they will not depart from it." We seek to come alongside parents to nurture life-long, Christ-following disciples. DiscipleLand begins the first Sunday in October and goes through mid-June.
