At Grace Church, children are not only welcomed but valued as integral members of our community.
Sunday programming is offered during the 9:30 am service in the Family Hall. Ages four and below are welcome in our beautiful, interactive nursery with adjoining playground under the supervision of trained staff. Children ages 3 or 4 – 12+ are invited to our classroom for rich and creative programming, and return to the sanctuary for communion with their families.
The fourth Sunday of every month (“Go Fourth Sunday”) is devoted to all-ages worship together, with a children’s moment facilitated by our priest and quiet activities set up in a children’s area by the altar. Families are invited to participate in a service project together after the liturgy. The nursery remains open during Go Fourth Sunday.
Safety Is Our Priority
Church should feel like home! We seek to create a safe, nurturing place for your children and do everything we can to help them to feel welcomed, and valued. Staff and regular volunteers who serve our children have all completed Safeguarding training through the Diocese of Olympia.

Every Sunday we offer loving child-care managed by Anna Briggs, Nursery Supervisor, with the assistance of our trained caregiver, Christina Fisher. Children up to the age of four are welcome here on a drop-in basis.
Basecamp and Wayfarers
We invite your elementary-aged children, ages 5-12, into a space of exploration and friendship through interactive storytelling, drama, art, music, and ritual. We foster a warm community as we ask big questions together about God, the world, service, and justice.
Calling all storytellers and artists!
