Welcome to KidsTown!

We strive to reach kids across the street and around the world with the love of Jesus. My name is Brien Brough; I’m the children’s pastor.

Here at Grace Church, we take the teaching of our next generation very seriously. In Matthew 19:14, Jesus says, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (also repeated in Mark 10:14 and Luke 18:16). Partnering with parents, we desire to point our kids to Christ. Below are the weekly KidsTown activities available at Grace, each designed with your children’s safety and security in mind.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at (515) 265-0199 or
