Learn about our GrandBuddy Program!

The GrandBuddy Program pairs every child in Pre-K through 8th grade with a non-related adult. The adults are encouraged to talk to the kids on Sunday mornings, asking how school is going, what they are learning in Sunday School and other things happening in their lives.

It is a great way to get kids excited about coming to church because they know somebody there is looking forward to seeing them - and we have found the same is true for participating adults who are excited each week to see their Little Buddies! 

Some pairs take their relationship even further, often attending the Little Buddies' sporting events, dance recitals or birthday parties. The most touching form that the GrandBudddy/Little Buddy relationships have taken is watching the pairs serve in worship together. 

If you have any more questions about GrandBuddies, please contact the Joy office.
