Children

"Our goal is for your kids to have a genuine relationship with God, build a Biblical foundation for their lives, grow with their friends and leaders, and love being at church."

  

Nursery

Your baby will experience personal care from our well-staffed team.  We keep our nursery rooms ready for your little ones, so we know when you bring your babies with specific needs and schedules to the classroom, we have an easy-to-use form that you can fill out to let our team know the feeding, sleeping, and changing needs your baby has.  We also take time to love and pray for your babies each week.

Baby Dedication

Jesus' parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22-40) when he was a child.  With a heart to follow this Biblical model, at GABC we have Baby Dedication.  At Baby Dedication, parents publicly commit to help their child grow in their faith and to raise them in a home centered on Jesus.  Our Pastor and church pray over each  child and we have a Bible to give to commemorate the occasion.  We offer Baby Dedication on special holidays and we'd love for your family to be part of it.  Please complete the  Family Dedication Registration Form   when those dates are announced on this website and our church staff will make sure this is a special day for your family and your little one.

Preschool

In preschool, your children start to engage more with their church experience, so we help them interact and build their faith through stories, crafts, and songs that give them Biblical truths.  They also start to build relationships with other kids in their class and their teachers. 

1st-5th Grades

We are a church of Connect Groups, and this starts with our kids.  Every weekend, children 1st through 5th grade participate in our Children's Ministry where they experience dynamic worship and Biblical teaching.  Most of their time is spent in their Connect Groups to give them the benefit of a consistent Group Leader and interaction with kids their age.  Together, they learn about the bible and how to have a relationship with God, memorize Scripture, and have fun developing friendships with each other.

MERGE (6th-8th Grades)

Merge Students create opportunities for students to discover who they are in Jesus.  We accomplish this by inviting students to be a part of our Wednesday and Sunday service experiences, so that they grow a love for the local church.  Allowing them at a young age enables them to learn alongside their parents and grow in maturity in their faith.  Additionally, we offer several opportunities for students to grow in their relationship with God and each other throughout the week.  We believe that by creating unique environments in the local church, students are excited to hear the word of God, be challenged by its truth & encouraged by leaders as well as their peers in their walk with Christ!
