Every Sunday morning, after the corporate singing and announcements portion of the meeting, the children of GCC gather for their own songs and instruction. Their meeting begins with a few fun songs as a group, before they join their respective classes. Classes are divided by age with classes for 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-11 year olds and a play area for toddlers.
We use God's Story, a solid biblical curriculum with a Bible memory program that the children are encouraged to participate in. The purpose of our Children's Ministry is to supplement the biblical teaching and training that parents are already giving their children and we strive to do that in a way that the children find fun and enjoyable. We want our children to grow up with a positive church experience while they learn the Gospel and the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith.
Security is also a priority in our Children's Ministry classes and for that purpose we have a sign in and sign out procedure, a numbered system for each child, and class and hall monitors.
God wants our children to A.R.I.S.E.
- A = Adore Him through worship
- R = Relate to others in His family
- I = Imitate Christ always
- S = Serve Him with what He's given us
- E = Evangelize to spread the gospel
