But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” (Matthew 19:14)
At GPC we take seriously that each child is created in the image of God. We realize how fast time moves and how little we have of it. Our vision is to partner with you as you journey along all the phases of your child’s life. At GPC we know that children matter!
Each week there are different types of worship and learning opportunities for your child to participate in.
On Sunday morning at the 9:30AM service, children 3 years old – 5th grade are invited to participate in worship with their peers upstairs in the CE building. We gather each Sunday together at 9:30AM in rooms 204/205 before dividing into the different worship opportunities. Children 3 years old through 2nd grade are invited to attend Godly Play and 3rd-5thgraders are invited to Worship Now.
All children fellowship together each week in between worship services with snacks in Rooms 204/205.
From 11AM-12PM, children 3 years old – 5th grade are invited to Sunday School in the CE building. Children may be dropped off before 10:45AM in Rooms 204/205. During Sunday School, children have a special large group time that includes singing. Parents can pick up children at 12PM in their respected classrooms in the CE building.
If your child is 6 weeks old-3 years old we have a nursery staffed by professional childcare workers who will show God’s love to your children each Sunday. Nursery is located downstairs in the CE building.

In addition to Sunday mornings, children have a spring and fall retreat, monthly fellowship activities, quarterly missions projects, and a summer VBS!
