Welcome to Children's Ministry at Graham Covenant Church! If you're here, it's likely that we share a common prayer. We want your child to know the great love that Jesus has for them. Our desire is for them to develop a meaningful, prayerful and lifelong relationship with God! Regular worship, prayer and Bible study (alone and with other Christians) is the key to strengthening faith. That's why we provide opportunities on Sundays and during the week for your child to be nurtured in their faith.
Sunday School hour begins at 9:30am each week in the CE (Christian Education) building at the west end of the parking lot. Experienced teachers who love the Lord are excited to teach your child from Lifeway's Gospel Project - a three year journey through the whole Bible. Children and teens meet downstairs in classrooms, while adults study the same Bible verses upstairs. It's a great way to keep the whole family on the same page and learn together.
We begin our 10:45am Worship Service together. Part way through the service, PreK and Elementary aged students are dismissed for Sunday Lifeboat. Here, we take a further look at that morning's Sunday School lesson and enjoy a broader array of activities and games. Parents are welcome to keep their children with them in Worship if they choose. A variety of books and writing activities are available in the lobby for use during this time. We certainly encourage families to worship together. We also understand that it is important to offer a time specifically designed for children. Please feel free to choose the option which best suits you and your family! Nursery care is available for children ages three and under. We also have a family room for nursing moms or other family needs.
Lifeboat Kids Club is a highlight of the week for many children. We meet on Thursdays from 4:00-5:15pm. This is a wonderful way for children to fellowship together and feed on the Word of God. Typically, our time includes a Bible lesson, worship, snack, games, crafts and prizes. Students from Graham, Kapowsin and Nelson Elementaries may ride the Lifeboat Bus from school! (This must be arranged ahead of time with us and with your school). Lifeboat Kids Club is free and open to all Elementary aged children. We meet October through May. Check the church calendar for exact meeting dates and click on Lifeboat Kids Club to sign up online!
We encourage families to read the Keys For Kids daily devotional together. Quarterly copies of this can be found in the church lobby or you can find it directly online at keysforkids.org.
Our annual Lifeboat Summer Club (VBS) is held the last week end of June. Don't miss it!
We have a dedicated crew of teachers and leaders. All volunteers are subject to a background check and annual child safety review.
We hope you and your family can join us soon!
