Children's Sunday School - 9:00 a.m. - 10 a.m.
Grace Baptist believes Sunday School is not just for children. We have classes for all ages from two years old through adults.
The leaders in the pre-school and elementary classes have a wealth of experience, knowledge and dedication. With a desire to serve God and a love for children, they are eager to share the message of salvation through Jesus Christ using Bible stories, prayer, music, discussion, games and crafts.
Smaller classes allow the teachers to form strong bonds with each child. Their goal is for your child to see the love of Jesus through them. They want each child to know they are safe, accepted, and cherished when they enter the doors of Grace.
Sunday School begins with all the children joining together as a group, singing praise choruses and scripture songs led by Carol Van Houten. After praying, the children go to their respective classes taught by Tristen Morrison(2-3 year olds), Sam Adamson(Pre-school-2nd grade), Stan Temte(3rd grade-Junior high), and Michael Barker(Junior high-High school). We use Group Publishing curriculum for the two younger classes. We love the children in our church and hope to provide a place where they can learn and grow in Jesus.
Awana Clubs: A fun-filled program for kids ages 3-12th grade. Awana is an international, non-denominational club whose goal is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. Cubbies, Sparks, and Awana are led by Heidi Wulff.
Cubbies--Pre-K (3-4 yrs.): Tuesdays--3:45 p.m. - 5:15 p.m. (September-April)
Sparks--K-2nd grade: Tuesdays--3:45 p.m. - 5:15 p.m. (September-April)
T&T, Trek and Journey--3rd-12th grade: Wednesdays--6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (September-April)
Please note that we typically follow the University of Wyoming calendar.
A typical afternoon for the Cubbies (PreK 3-4yrs.) and Sparks (K-2nd grade) involves singing, a Bible Story or devotional, a handbook time where they learn and recite Bible verses and understand what they mean, a snack time and game time. The Cubbies also have a craft that they do that goes along with the lesson for that week and earn stickers for their participation and memory work. Sparks earn badges, jewels and prizes throughout the year for their participation and completion of sections in their handbooks.
A typical evening for the Awana clubs, T&T (Truth and Training 3rd-6th grades), Trek (7th-8th grades), and Journey (9th-12th grades) involves a separate handbook and game time for boys and girls and a devotional time together with singing. Through this devotion time, kids figure out what faith looks like on a daily basis and how to apply Scripture to everyday experiences. In addition, we have themed nights throughout the year and an ice cream social once a year to encourage bringing guests. Throughout the year we have several store nights where the children can spend points they earn for participating at club and completing sections in their handbooks.
The curricula involves Bible studies, memorization of Bible verses, mentoring, prayer, singing, teaches sportsmanship in game time and is flexible for all abilities. Awana is a balance of fun and Bible training. This program encourages diligence, team work and rightly dividing the Word of Truth. Awana is not compromising with Biblical Truth, and is balanced with outreach, discipleship and fun.
Currently, the clubs have participants from many other churches in and around Laramie as well as some children that do not attend a church. All the children are encouraged to invite any of their friends, especially those who don’t yet know the Lord as their Savior. While the bulk of the club costs are funded by the church, parents are asked to pay minimal dues, buy the children’s handbooks and uniforms. We do have scholarship monies available for those who cannot afford some or all of these expenses.
