Children and Family Ministry

Grace recognizes that children and young families are our future. We strive to provide family focused and when possible multi-generational activities to promote a greater sense of community and connectedness. Check out some of the activities for young children.


JAM stands for “Jesus And Me” and meets monthly for youth in grades 4th to 6th in the Youth Room. JAM consists of Bible Study, activities, and fellowship with everyone. We usually meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month from 3:30 pm-4:30 pm.

Release Time

This is a wonderful ministry in which children from around the Ada-Borup area come together for religious education and fellowship on Wednesday mornings during the school year. Instruction begins in October and runs through April. Classes are held on Wednesday mornings for students in 3rd through 6th grade.

Children's Choir

Children grades 3rd through 6th have an exciting opportunity to share their faith through song with our Associate of Youth and Music Ministry . The choir meets after school Wednesdays for about an hour and sings for Sunday services on a monthly basis.


Sunday School

Sunday School classes are held September through May at 10:05 am for preschool age 3 through 12th grade. Our Children have lots of singing and great classroom activities that help teach them about our faith. We use the classroom model and the SPARK curriculum from Augsburg fortress.

Vacation Bible School

  • Preschool

Preschool – Vacation Bible School is held for one week in May for children ages 3 and 4 and 5 year old's not yet in kindergarten. We meet in the mornings and we have all kinds of age appropriate crafts, lots of singing, bible stories, snacks, and activities. Each year we also head to Benedictine Living Center to sing for the residents.  We also sing for the congregation during the Sunday service. Transportation is provided each day from the local child care facilities.

  • K though 6th Grade

For K-6th grades we have a week of fun, fellowship and learning led by Pathways Outdoor Ministries. Typically VBS falls in July and is held in the evenings. It is a wonderful experience for the kids and the volunteers who help so please keep an eye out for the dates each year.
