Kids are very important at Forest Grove Community Church! We know that raising kids in today’s world comes with many joys as well as challenges; that is why we want to support  leaders in the home as they guide their children through the various stages of childhood.

Our desire is to help families be transformed in Jesus Christ. Family Ministries focuses on two things: Intergenerational Discipleship and Transforming Homes. Intergenerational Discipleship happens when all the ages teach and learn from one another. Transforming Homes happens when families are transformed in Jesus Christ.

GroveKids has an awesome team of caring and enthusiastic leaders who love kids and like spending time with them! All of our leaders are screened, trained and eager to make a difference for God! Our Check In stations provide safe pick up and drop off for kids.

GroveKids Summer Program

We are going to Power Up this summer by learning about the power of the Holy Spirit, to produce fruit that points others to Jesus. Each week we will discover something about God’s character that we can apply to our life.

What & Who: A Sunday morning summer program for Age 2-Grade 6

When & Where: Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:40am in the Lounge at FGCC Attridge. GroveKids Powered Up for Summer will run every Sunday from June 30-August 25 including long weekends.

Why: We desire to see families continue to make church a priority throughout the summer. We also desire to give our regular volunteers a break over the summer months. “GroveKids Powered Up for Summer” will provide leaders a break while giving parents and children a fun environment to continue to learn and grow.

Details:

  • Age 2-5 Adult Accompanied: Parents/adults need to remain with 2-5 year olds for the duration of the program. If you want to coordinate with other families, we ask for a 1:4 adult to children ratio.
  • Grade 1-6 students must check in each week at the check in station(s) located by the Lounge.
    • Grade 1-4 students: Parents must pick up their child(ren) at 10:40am.
    • Grade 5-6 students: Must check in but are able  to return to the main service on their own at 10:40am.
  • Nursery: Our nursery will be open and available for parents to use but will not be supervised by volunteers throughout the summer months.
