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.
2021 SUMMER PROGRAM
Our 2021 Summer Program at Graffiti is an Outer Space VBS theme: "God's Love is out of this world!" We will learn how God walked with heroes of the Bible and that God is always with us too. Our hope is to welcome kids back into a safe and social setting and inspire them to give glory to God who is able to do far beyond all we can ask or imagine in all seasons of life.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
This fall (2020), Graffiti Kids After School is structured as a no-cost, high-quality ministry for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade. We will have a virtual Bible study, fun, & game sessions via Zoom from 4:00-4:40 pm.
In addition, we will have a special Grab-&-Go Fun Kit day each month (October 29, November 19, & December TBD) where you can stop by Graffiti Church (205 E. 7th St.) to pick up a fun kit between 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm. Kits will contain things like themed crafts, snacks, coloring/activity sheets, small toys, etc. More info to come! Note: These kits are just for fun and are not needed for participation in the Wednesday Zoom sessions. (Masks and social distancing required for pick up.)
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.
