45 Degrees

Grades 4-5

For information about 45 Degrees, email Jordan Crawford, Director of 45 Degrees, or call 313.530.3055.


45 Degree students should check in with a parent at the family welcome center near GraceKids Preschool and Elementary. Then, they will be escorted downstairs to the 45 Degrees room. Students can be checked in and dropped off 10 minutes before the service begins, and should be picked up directly after the service ends. In order for our ministry leaders and volunteers to properly focus their time of ministry with children and students, we will close check-in 30 minutes AFTER each service begins; children will not be permitted into the classrooms after 9:30AM for 9AM service and 11:30AM for 11AM service. Should you arrive after this time, you will need to keep your children with you.


In order to provide the ultimate safety for your child while in our care, we follow a strict security policy for all Children’s Ministry areas. To ensure the proper adult is picking up your child, you will receive numbered stickers when checking in at the Family Welcome Center. You must have your numbered sticker in order to pick up your child.

In the event that your child needs you during the service, the security number will appear on the screen in the Worship Center.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please email La Kesia Patton, Director of Children’s Ministries, or call 313.449.8074.


“Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts to be used in service of others. So use your gift well.” 1 Peter 4:10

The purpose of Kids on a Mission is to encourage students to use the gifts they have been given to serve their friends, neighbors, school, church, city, and the world. Our children have received “Kids on a Mission” buttons to remind them that they are always on mission for God. With every mission that they accomplish, they add a new button to their collection to remind them of the good works that they have done for God’s kingdom.

Our next mission is a partnership with Grace Missions+Mobilization and Joy Thrift, a new store in Hamtramck that is opening up to serve the immigrant (many refugees) population in the area. Grace Children’s Ministry will be collecting the following gently used items to donate to this thrift store:

  • Kids Clothing
  • Kids shoes
  • Socks (any size)
  • Toys

We will be collecting these items outside the GraceKids Garage (Elementary Room) from June 27-August 22.


FUZE is an event that is meant JUST for 45 Degrees students. It’s an exciting “night-in” with games, snacks, and prizes. FUZE occurs a few times a year. The next FUZE will be announced soon!
