GCKids Children's Ministry

Ministering to the needs of babies and children is very important to us here at Grace Christian Center. From the very moment a child is born, we are to instill and train them in the principles of God’s word. It is our desire to give loving care to your child’s physical needs, and to minister to their emotional and spiritual needs as well.

MEETING TIMES FOR ALL AGE GROUPS

Sunday Mornings: 9 AM & 11 AM

Wednesday Nights: 7 PM

FUN

Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, singing, puppets and live acting.

AGE APPROPRIATE

Our environments and lesson materials are created with your child in mind. We want your children to leave every service with a clear understanding of what the Bible says and how that applies to their life.

SAFETY

Every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification number, every volunteer is screened with an interview and federal background check, and every hallway and classroom is monitored by security cameras and safety personnel.

SERVICE

We believe that children need to be trained to be servants of God. We provide opportunities for kids to be the teacher’s helper in our younger classrooms and serve in a variety of ministry areas in our older classrooms

CREATIVE BIBLE TEACHING

The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities, skits, puppets and lessons that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.

SUNDAY SERVICE

Our Kids service is designed to teach the Word of God to boys and girls. We involve them in a regular worship service on a level where they can best enjoy, understand and benefit from the message of the Gospel. KAS services parallel our adult services in many ways: praise & worship, Bible preaching, offering, and altar calls. We also use other methods of teaching, such as puppet skits, drama, storytelling, costume characters and creative object lessons.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIVE

Wednesday Night Live is an exciting service filled with biblical truths. Your children will get to take part in live praise and worship, dynamic object lessons, and live puppet skits. We play many games like the “Memory Verse Challenge”, and “Beat the Clock”, and much more. Your kids won’t want to miss this upbeat mid-week service!

KIDS ACTION STUDIO STORE

The Studio Store is our way of rewarding boys and girls who show themselves faithful to church and working hard. Kids can earn StarBucks by attending service, bringing their Bible, bringing visitors and participating in our Memory Verse Challenge. The Studio Store is open the last Sunday of the month to encourage boys and girls to save up their points for exciting gifts and prizes.

HELPS MINISTRY FOR KIDS

We believe that kids not only need to be trained in the Word of God, but also trained to be servants of God. Our Helps Ministry, better known as “C.R.E.W.” is training kids to be actively involved in serving the body of Christ. Kids can get involved in a variety of ministry opportunities such as: praise & worship team, greeters, check-in workers and stage hands. Whether it’s helping out in kids church or assisting and working with adults, our kids love to serve God!
