Our Graffiti Kids Ministry strives to provide a safe, fun, and loving environment as we mentor the whole child--spiritual, mental, physical, emotional, and social. Our goal is to teach our kids about Jesus and His love for them through the Gospel message and point them to Him. Our vision is to provide no-cost or affordable, high-quality, and Gospel-centered programs held in our community for families on the Lower East Side.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Graffiti Kids After School is structured as a no-cost, high-quality ministry for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade. Activities include homework help; snack time; Bible stories; recreation, crafts, & activities; birthday celebrations; and special events for kids and their families. The program runs Monday-Thursday from school pick up at 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., in general keeping with the public school calendar and holidays.
SUNDAY SMALL GROUPS
Our Sunday small groups provide kids 5 months- 4 years and kindergarten - 5th grade with an opportunity to grow in their faith by learning Bible stories, participate in activities to learn scripture, and follow the models of screened and trained adult leaders who love kids and are excited to help them grow in their relationship with Christ. We utilize Gospel-centered curriculum in our small groups, including A Sure Foundation: A Philosophy & Curriculum for Ministry to Infants & Toddlers and The Jesus Storybook Bible Curriculum. During this season of social distancing, digital materials are being provided upon request. Please contact us for more information!
Throughout the year, Graffiti offers several seasonal events for kids and their families, including the Annual School Supply Sale, Fall Family Fun event, Community Christmas Party and Toy Sale, and a spring event. We see these as opportunities to share Christ’s love in a special, tangible way. You can see all the Graffiti events by visiting our calendar.
