"We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done." - Psalm 78:4

Welcome to Grace Way Kids! I hope this webpage will be helpful in defining the ministries we have for your children. The Bible promises “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart’” (Jeremiah 29:11-13). First Baptist DeSoto desires that your children experience a full and meaningful life. We believe that life is in Jesus. Each children’s ministry is focused on your child’s learning to know and live for Jesus. God has created each child for a special purpose, and He desires to share that plan with them. As they live out that plan, they can truly have a full and meaningful life.

Rejoicing in Jesus,

Hannah Snudden, Minister to Children
