Our Children’s Ministry is committed to presenting God’s word to children while being godly examples to those we teach. Our mission is to support parents as they train up their children in the knowledge and respect of God. We seek to provide a clean, safe environment for children. To help ensure the safety of the children, all of our adult staff undergo a professional background check.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."
We provide responsible childcare so parents can worship in the main service free of distraction.
The upstairs nursery room is open for parents to use in caring for infants without Children’s Ministry volunteer support during the regular Sunday services. Our Intermediate Nursery provides care for children who are nine months to two years old. Our Advanced Nursery provides care for children who are two and three years old.
Each child in the Intermediate and Advanced Nurseries is checked in when brought to a nursery, and parents are given a numbered pager. The pager must be returned to pick up the child.
The Children’s Ministry team offers Sunday School classes for children Pre-K through 8th grade during the months of January through June and September through October. Each lesson offers a Biblical teaching and discussion. More information can be found at Answers in Gensis ABC websites. This Semester (Fall 2017), Middle Schoolers will cover GCC Core values. Our teachers have a passion to help their students to grow spiritually and to have a fulfilling life.
PreK through 5th grade Sunday School classes start with check-in at 9:45am each Sunday downstairs in the north wing classrooms. Students in 6th-8th grades meet for Sunday School in the 2nd floor library from 10:15-11:15am.
