Our Children's Ministry is called The G.R.O.V.E., which stands for Grow, Reach, Others, Values, and Eternity. We aim to provide quality, age-appropriate, Godly programs for our children from birth through fifth grade.
We serve our children and provide parents with the tools to teach their children about Christ at home. It's important to us that our kids have a strong foundation in their faith, and we believe that starts at a young age. We want to create a safe and welcoming environment where children can learn about God's love and grow in their relationship with Him. Our programs are designed to be fun and engaging while teaching essential values to help our kids navigate the world around them. We believe that by investing in our children's spiritual growth, we are shaping not only their present but also their eternity.
Every Sunday morning, we offer a welcoming and secure space where children from newborns up to fifth graders can come to learn about Jesus and interact with their peers. Our curriculum and activities are carefully designed to cater to each age group and level of comprehension, ensuring that every child has a fun and fulfilling experience. We prioritize the safety of every child, providing a nurturing environment where parents can trust that their kids are well-cared for while they attend services.
When visiting Grove City Vineyard for the first time with children eligible for The G.R.O.V.E., you will be directed to the children's check-in station, where an actual live person will walk you through the process. You will register your child(ren) during your first visit and answer a few questions. You'll be in the system on subsequent visits, and check-in will take less than a minute.
Each child is given a printed name badge and a corresponding badge for the parent, providing another level of security for only authorized individuals to gather your child after service.
Our fellowship is grateful for the men and women who volunteer their time to teach in The G.R.O.V.E. Before each three-month tour of duty, they undergo a thorough background check and training on safety and how to provide the best teaching for children of specific ages. These teachers are dedicated to being the hands and feet of Jesus and providing your child with exceptional care. If you're interested in volunteering, please reach out to our Children's Ministry Pastor, Heather Fleck, who would be more than happy to discuss potential opportunities with you.
During the adult worship services, kids in grades 3-5 will go to Club 345! It's a super fun place to be where you get to experience interactive worship, hands on and relevant lessons, break out groups, and have a great time with your friends.
Plus, there's always something new and exciting happening each week - from science experiments to special guest speakers. You won't want to miss out on all the fun!
At The G.R.O.V.E., we are excited to share the love of Jesus with His smallest of children! If you have any questions about our children's ministry, contact Pastor Heather Fleck and she will be happy to answer any of your questions.
