Promotion Weekend is here at all Grace Church campuses and we want it to be a time focused on worship for you and your family,. We realize that this is also a season full of change for most of our families, end of summer, new teachers, new schools, new grade, and with the excitement, it can also bring challenges. We hope that some of these questions and answers below will help you as a parent, lead through the changes and refocus your family on worship and not logistics. So here’s what you need to know to prepare:
This Saturday and Sunday – August 16 & 17 – all campuses
Where do we go?
Your check-in slip will tell you the class where your child is assigned. Remember to always confirm the classroom name on the check-in slip!
Who is being promoted?
All children nursery-4th grade will move up an age or grade level at the same campus and at the same service time(s) unless you have told us otherwise. Need to change something?
If you are changing worship days/serving times or campuses, please arrive early to make the necessary changes.
What if I need help?
We will have Welcome Team members and staff available to assist at each campus. Look for volunteers and staff in the Grace Church Kids t-shirts.
How can I help?
Promotion Weekend always has a little more energy as kids, parents, and volunteers make their way to their classrooms, but we will do our best to keep things running smoothly for you! Welcome Team members and staff will be ready and able to direct you to the right room, keep lines moving, and to serve you as quickly as possible; but, please come with hearts prepared to worship and to respond to volunteers with patience and flexibility. Also, if you are looking for a place to serve, there are still opportunities within Grace Church Kids classrooms. We would love to have you join our team! Just ask us how or check our website for volunteer opportunities.
Promotion Weekend is going to be a great time of worship for our families! Talk to your kids before they arrive and remind them that they will be going to a new room and could be meeting a new small group leader/teacher. This is an opportunity for them to GROW by meeting new people and by living out GRACE with their friends. Lead them well in this transition and remind them we are all here to worship!

Promotion weekend is this coming weekend – August 16-17!
In preparation for it, we have registered your children (infant through rising 4th) for the same campus and service time(s) they normally attend. But, if you are changing services or campuses, please let us know and we can make an update for you to make promotion weekend easier for us all.
1. If you are staying at the same campus/in the same service days/times and have no changes, do nothing
2. If you are changing worship days/serving times or campuses, click here to fill out the change form.
All year we have been learning about God’s character (His attributes). We have learned that He is Creator, Relational, All-Knowing, Provider, Rescuer, Generous, Healer, Love, Holy, Life Changer, Protector, All-Powerful, and even more. He has so many wonderful attributes we cannot fully comprehend. We use the firework image as a simple visual reminder of the awe and wonder that God is all of these things at once. But you can go even further with the connection – God’s glory cannot be contained; it’s like fireworks that completely fill the sky and leave us in awe. As you watch the beautiful and exciting firework displays, take some time to talk to your preschoolers about God and how He is AWEsome!
