Children's Ministries at Grace Covenant Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN
From the cradle through fifth grade, we believe a vital part of the ministry of Grace Covenant Baptist Church is to the children who attend each week. A variety of proven ministries are offered to meet the needs of children of all ages. Our loving, dedicated and experienced leaders consider it, not only a privilege, but a calling from God to provide to young children the opportunity to learn God's Word as they begin their lifelong journey of knowing, loving, and serving Jesus Christ. We believe that each child is deserving of our concern, attention, and love.
An attractive and well staffed weekday Christian child care center and Sunday morning nursery is provided for infants and toddlers up to age five. These ministries enable parents to participate in Bible study and worship without being distracted and to know their child is being cared for throughout the week.

Middle and high school students are being surrounded today by unbelievable challenges - broken families, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual promiscuity, bullying and suicide only to name a few. However, Grace Covenant Baptist Church knows that any challenge faced by todayâs teen can be overcome by the truth of Godâs Word and the power of the risen Christ. That is why our weekday Bible studies and Christian school in Knoxville, TN seek to offer numerous opportunities that will aid students in living out their full potential for Jesus Christ. The goal of Grace Covenant Baptist Church Student Ministry is to reach, restore, and make ready middle and high school students to release them as an educated and dedicated follower of Jesus Christ, ready to fulfill their God-ordained purpose in life.
The weekly middle and high school gatherings (9:45 a.m. on Sundays and 6:45 p.m. on Wednesdays) are designed to give Biblical answers and application to the relevant issues that face today's teens. As students meet each week, they will participate in worship, fellowship, Bible study, missions and ministry. Our relevant approach to Student Ministry will assure middle and high school students of the love of God and the power of Christ, leading them to an ever-growing personal relationship and daily walk with Jesus Christ.

Additional information is available from the church office concerning any or all of our adult ministries.
Grace Covenant Baptist Church offers a blend of contemporary and traditional styles of music in appealing to people with different musical tastes. In addition to the hymns of old, the services offer the energy of todayâs contemporary Christian music, including musical selections from soloists, duets, trios, quartets and ensembles. The church band is a vital part of our church worship. We have various musical instruments that add to our worship services. On special occasions, vocal and instrumental music is performed by worshipers of all ages. Special musical and drama productions are presented during the holiday seasons to further emphasize the message of the season.
