Sunday school classes for all ages are taught by dedicated teachers who work to bring the truths of God's Word alive in the hearts and minds of children every week.
Following Sunday school, the children (from 1st grade through 5th grade) come to "Super Church." The children sing songs about Jesus, and are challenged from the preaching of God's Word that they need to give their heart to Christ, and then to live for Him each day.
Younger children (2 years old through Kindergarten) stay in the same classroom for the Children's Church hour that they met in for Sunday School. In the second session, they receive additional Bible-based teaching about God's love. These younger children remain in their classroom with their teachers until they are picked up by the parent at the close of the morning service.
The Kids of Praise children's choir practice after Super Church, and are dismissed when the adults are dismissed from the morning service in the auditorium. Directed by Steve and Linda Paiko, the Kids of Praise sing in Sunday services about once each month, and are regular participants in the annual Easter and Christmas programs.
Our children are welcomed into the evening service to worship together with the entire family on Sunday nights. We do provide classroom teaching for all children 4 years and under in the 6pm service on Sundays.
Wednesday night means Joy Club, Joy Bells and God's Little Lambs. From 2 years old through 5th grade, GPBC challenges children to learn God's Word and apply it to their life. Badges, ribbons and awards are earned for learning Bible verses, for helping with chores around the house, demonstrating skills in outdoor activities, and much more. Young people can earn the right to participate in activities such as snow tubing and other exciting activities through their work in Joy Club. Children of all ages will love coming on Wednesday nights for exciting activities and Bible-teaching in this exciting ministry.
Check the church calendar throughout the year for other activities in the children's ministry, including Summer Camp, Vacation Bible school, pine car derby and more!
Intern Pastor Scott McFeters leads our children's ministries, and welcomes your children to GPBC!
