The God Reaches All People Everywhere Express (G.R.A.P.E. Express) leaves the station at 9:30 am and 11:00 am every Sunday during our two worship hours. Our Children’s Ministries program provides a place where families are assured that it is a fun, safe and grounded ministry where children can be equipped for life. Each children’s worship hour is filled with prayers, songs, engaging Bible lessons, arts and crafts, science experiments, cooking and fun. We celebrate communion the first Sunday of every month. It is our hope that families grow together on their journey to know, love and serve Jesus Christ.
Core messages we teach:
- I need to make the wise choice
- I can trust God no matter what
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated
Our Children’s Ministry staff cares deeply about all of the children at Napa Methodist Church and wish to serve God and our church by guiding our children on their spiritual journey. All of our Sunday School teachers and staff go through a thorough background check.
Vicki Poli, our Director of Children’s Ministries, plans lessons and leads Sunday’s 9:30 am Children’s Worship. She also leads the children’s events during Christmas and Easter, and plans and leads our summer Vacation Bible School.
Susan Sanderson plans and leads the 11:00 am Children’s Worship. Susan plans her lessons so that each G.R.A.P.E. Children’s Express Worship will be unique, so that children can enjoy both the 9:30 and 11:00 services.
