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:
WEDNESDAY NIGHT AWANA — 6:00-7:30pm
On Wednesday nights we have a fun-filled AWANA children’s program for ages 3yrs to 12yrs old. The night is filled with three segments — fun and exciting games, small group time, and an interactive large group segment. We teach the children that God is real, He loves them, and He has expressed that love through His Son, Jesus Christ. Kids also learn how God can help them in their daily lives. Bible-based lessons teach them how to obey God in a complex world. The goal of our children’s program is to give boys and girls the chance to know, love and serve God.
We offer a van pick-up and drop-off service for our program on Wednesday Nights. If you are interested in your child riding the van, please contact the church office at 706-746-5823
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
In addition to the things listed above, there are many other things that we offer for the Children of GBC — Summer soccer camp, equipping parents, Christmas play, and many other things. We hope that you will check out the Children’s Ministry at GBC.
Please let our Youth Pastor, Zack Ford, know if you have any questions or comments. You can contact him at the church by calling 706-746-5823 or by emailing him at Zack@MyGraceBibleChurch.org
