We consider it a privilege to partner with parents to help build a biblical foundation for a lifetime of growth in Jesus Christ. We strive to provide solid programs that are not only fun, but that also equip your child with the biblical foundations necessary to grow in their relationship with the Lord.

Sunday School

Sunday School meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. in the Joy Wing. Through Sunday School, children in Grades K-5 learn of God's love and His plan for their lives at an age appropriate level.

Hosanna Children's Choir

Hosanna is a Worship Arts ministry that teaches children ages Kindergarten through Grade 5 how to express their love for God through a lifestyle of worship. Artistic elements of worship, which include choral music, dance, and drama, are presented in the classroom as children learn how much God loves them and values their worship! The Bible tells us in Matthew 21 that the children in the temple area shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David!", and Jesus replied, quoting Scripture from Psalm 8:2, "Have you never read, 'from the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise'?" We know that indeed God wants to hear His children praising Him! Hosanna Choir presents a musical each year and sings in morning worship on selected Sundays. Join us as we sing and shout Hosanna!

Elevate

Elevate is a weekly, high-energy event for kids that will meet during the summer months. Children enjoy singing, playing games, and applying God's Word to life. We would love to have your children participate in Elevate at GBC. Elevate Jr. (preschool) will meet in the Lower Joy wing. Elevate (K-3rd) and Elevate Summit (4th-5th) will meet in the Upper Joy wing.

Every Wednesday, there will be childcare available for birth through pre-kindergarten children, and there is even a family meal served in the Faith building from 4:45-6:00 for $6 for adults, $4 for kids 4-13, and free for kids birth through 3 and a $20 maximum for families. Wednesday evenings are exciting for families at GBC, and we'd love for yours to be a part of them!


AWANA

Open to all kids ages 4 through 5th grade, we would love for you to join us in Awana on Wednesday nights during the school year in the upper Joy Wing. Each week at 6 p.m. we will enjoy learning the Gospel, memorizing Scripture, playing games, and having fun with various themes and adventures. We offer age-appropriate ministries for everyone-Cubbies, Sparks, and T&T.

Kid's Worship

At GBC, we want to prepare our children to worship with the Body of Christ in spirit and in truth. On Sunday mornings at 10:30, we would love for kids who are in Kindergarten through 2nd grade to join us for Kids Worship in Joy 217. During this time, we will learn and practice the elements of worship—Biblical teaching, singing and praise, giving, and Scripture reading—all in a kid-friendly environment.
