At GCC our children’s ministry is a top priority! We have made it our ambition to win the next generation to Christ and to raise a generation of spiritual champions! If you are a member of our church you already know (and if you visit, you’ll quickly observe) the emphasis we place upon ministry to children.
Nursery Ministry: We offer a nursery for children under the age of two during our Sunday School hour, Sunday morning, and Sunday evening services. In the nursery, children have their first experiences at church. It is our intention for these early experiences to be positive ones. Our nursery exists to provide a safe, friendly and loving environment in which children can develop physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Preschool Ministry: Our preschool ministry is divided into two sections: 2 & 3 year olds and 4-6 year olds. This area of ministry introduces young children to the basic truths of Scripture using a variety of creative techniques. Children learn in a fun and exciting environment through songs, crafts, games and the guidance of their loving teachers. Our preschool ministry is laying a firm foundation for future years of spiritual growth. Preschool classes meet at 9:45 AM and 10:45 AM every Sunday.
Kid's Church: Our elementary school ministry is geared towards first through fifth grade students. For this age group we have Sunday School at 9:45 AM. Following Sunday School, we have Kid's Church, a high-energy, interactive, media-driven class that combines games, contemporary worship, creative Bible teaching, and Scripture memorization. Kid's Church meets on Sunday mornings at 10:45 AM.
Safe and Secure: Our goal is to provide a safe and secure environment for every child. That's why all entrances are locked from the outside and we carefully screen volunteers before they step into the classroom. We have also developed a well-mapped-out emergency exit plan on how to get the kids out of the building quickly.
Healthy Kids Policy: At the first signs of illness (fever in the last 24 hours, a questionable rash, nasal discharge, diarrhea or conjunctivitis), please keep your child at home. Your child will be more comfortable there and this will also prevent other children from becoming sick. Should your child become ill while in our care, we will notify you promptly.
Our children's ministry is a force driven by volunteers. If you have questions about your kid's involvement or about volunteering, please email Kyli. You can also keep up with our Children's Ministry on Facebook.
