At Grandview, we want to see the whole church involved in the lives of our children--to support their spiritual growth, engage them in age-appropriate service opportunities, and connect them with each other and with adults in the church.
We do this through a mix of age-specific and intergenerational programs. Those programs include Sunday school, kids worship, small groups, and a highly interactive midweek event called Two4Two. We also build service nights, fun activities, and opportunities for discussion into our calendar so that kids can grow in a variety of ways.
Designed with your kiddos in mind, each child is taught in a secure and age-appropriate environment. Our desire is to create a warm and safe place for your children to form friendships, ask questions, and know that they are unique and valued.
A K-3 large group experience where kids can move and groove while worshiping God and learning through team building activities. Crew 456 (Grades 4, 5, 6) are invited to attend adult worship.
Kids Sunday School
On Sunday mornings, school-age kids are divided into age-appropriate classes. They explore stories from the Bible and questions about faith with kids their own age in a safe and fun environment.
Youth Sunday School
Our 7th-12th graders are invited to attend adult worship; however, we also host a Sunday school time at 9:30 and 11:00. This is a chance for youth to cultivate relationships with their peers and trusted adults while exploring questions about faith.
Studies show that children with five meaningful adult relationships (besides their parents) make healthier grown ups later on. We believe that adults with five meaningful relationships with youth (besides their children) stay younger longer (we don't have any studies for that one, just our experience!)
Crew 456 & Youth Small Groups
Kids grades 4-12 meet in small groups to serve our community, and have fun! Groups are separated by age group: Crew 456 (grades 4-6), junior high (grades 7-9), and senior high (grades 10-12). Small groups meet most Sunday evenings, 6:00-8:00 at the Buffalo campus.
Ten Wednesday nights each fall and spring, the Buffalo campus buzzes with a full evening of activities.
The evening begins with enrichment classes that are open to both children and adults. Topics range from art and dance to car mechanics 101 and outdoor games. Then, everyone gathers to share a family-style meal, lively worship, and a teaching time--all of which has a focus on building inter-generational relationships.
Finally, we end the evening with age-appropriate classes. This time of playing, eating, and worshiping together is at the heart of Grandview life!
