Of course, children may be picked up at any time for your convenience. You are also welcome to visit at any time during the program year.

Who is it for? Not limited to members of Grace Lutheran Church, the afterschool program is for all area children who are not yet in the 6th grade.

This program is offered at no charge and is coordinated by Katie Bridgers and facilitated by additional volunteers from the congregation and community. Many families in the area want a safe and helpful setting for their children and are eager to have their children learn about God’s love. The people of Grace Lutheran want to be of service to our community and want to contribute to the faith development of our children.

*Although the weekly Bible story will be told by a Grace Lutheran volunteer, there will be no particular denominational focus. We do engage the children in holiday projects and celebrations.

Please call with questions or concerns or stop by the church to see the curriculum and learn more about the program. Church phone #: 482-2011 to speak to Katie Bridgers.

If your children did not bring home a form from school, stop by the church or call to register by phone.

Children in the 5th and 6th grade are engaged in special activities just for their age group. This transitional group allows the older children to participate in field trips, service projects, more advanced craft projects, and a time of exploring the bible, as regularly as possible.
