One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
— Psalm 145:4-7
These verses capture well the goal of our children’s ministry at Grace Bible Church — Commending His works and Declaring His acts from one generation to another. The children’s ministry, together with all of the ministries in our church, seeks to partner together to accomplish our five-fold purpose:
- Exalting God’s Grace
- Growing God’s People
- Reaching God’s World
- Preaching God’s Word
- Modeling God’s Love
At Grace Bible Church, we are convinced and committed to the fact that parents are, and should be, the primary teachers and influences in the lives of their children. Our Children’s Ministry at GBC seeks to come alongside the parents in this process of teaching and training their children. In order to accomplish this, there are a variety of resources and programs that we offer for the children at GBC:
SUNDAY SCHOOL — SUNDAY MORNINGS — 9:30-10:30am
We offer a few children’s Sunday School classes, intended to lay a foundation for the faith by emphasizing the truths of Scripture in an age-appropriate way. The classes, along with where the child’s class is located, is listed below:
- Ages 2-5 — ROOM 2
- 1st – 3rd Grade — ROOM 3
- 4th – 6th Grade — ROOM 7
WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY — 6:00-7:00pm
On Wednesday nights, we gather together in a more informal setting than Sunday morning to study the Bible, learn core truths to the Christian faith, and grow in our practical understanding of God’s Word and applying it to our lives. This Bible study is open to everyone, from adults to teenagers to children. We also offer a nursery through age 4 during this time.
FAMILY EVENTS — Various
Throughout the year we schedule events that are intended not only to allow the children to have fun, but also to encourage and equip parents in their role as the primary influence in their children’s lives. Sometimes these events are pure fun, sometimes they are instructive, and sometimes a mixture. But every time, they are intended to bring the family together and equip the family to be better disciple-makers in the home.
