Youth & Family Spring 2016

Christian Education

Weekly youth education introduces children and youth ages 2 and up to core ideas of faith and service. Nursery care is available from 9:15 AM until the end of the Service every Sunday and during special holiday Services.

Youth also have the opportunities to join in service projects and social action events throughout the year.

Grace Church is a safe and welcoming place for all. Please see our statement of policy that governs all our school and parish interactions.

Spring 2016 - Formation Station

This spring we are excited to introduce a new format for Christian education at Grace Church. We have noticed over the years that the Sundays that seem to engage all youth the most are the ones where everyone works together on group projects.

Youth Programs

Grace offers a full array of programs and services for young parishioners!

Junior Choir performs a few times each year.
Brief rehearsals follow the 10:30am service on Sundays leading up to the performance. The choir rehearses in the main hall of the church.

If your child would like to participate in the Junior Choir,
contact our Interim Music Director Heather Kirkconnell ( . Generally, the age group is 6–11 years of age.


Serving as an acolyte is a way for middle and high school-age youth to participate in and feel part of the church's traditions.

Acolytes generally serve every three or four weeks.
Contact the Church Office to learn more about acolyting at Grace Newton!


Grace Church is in the process of re-imagining
its confirmation process and we value your input
and commitment to this all-important tradition.
For those who have never been confirmed as well as those who would like to reaffirm their faith, contact the Christian Education Director, Jared Wyma-Bradley (
