Kids

Welcome!

love. grow. Inspire.

Our GC Kids ministry exists to equip a generation to love God and others, to grow together in Christ, and to inspire life-change.

The focus of GC Kids is to connect children and families in a lasting relationship with God through His Word and age-appropriate services. We offer programs for kids ages birth through fifth grade during both Weekend Services.

We strongly believe in the Orange philosophy. We hope to help connect the bright lights of church (yellow)with the warm heart of home (red). The idea is yellow + red = orange.

What to expect?


When you arrive at Greenwood Christian, overhead signage or a Welcome Center volunteer will help you find our GC Kids check-in area. Volunteers can answer any questions you might have and then get your kids checked into the right classes based on their birth date or grade.


The security of your family is a top concern for us. Volunteers have all been through a background check process. Each week, your kids will be issued a name tag and claim tag for pickup. When you pick up your kids from their classroom, the teacher will match the number on the the name tag and claim ticket. All kids will check in (as early as 15 minutes before service) at the Children’s Welcome Center prior to entering the Children’s Wing.


Nursery & Toddler

During each adult worship service, we offer great programming for babies and toddlers (birth through 2 years old) where we share the love of Jesus with your kids.


Preschool & Kindergarten

Through classes for 2s & 3s, 3s & 4s, 4s & 5s, and Kindergartners, our goal is to introduce your kids to a foundation where they will learn that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.

During the 9:30 service, you kids will be in small groups engaging in age-appropriate activities and a Bible lesson.

During the 11 service, we’ll bring the 4s & 5s and Kindergarten groups together for a large group worship time and then split into small groups with adult leaders who can help students apply the lesson for the week.

There is no greater influence in the life of a child than a parent. We want to come alongside you as you lead your kids to Jesus. Check out the Preschool Parent Connect page to see this month’s theme and download activities that can be used to keep the discussion going at home.

Elementary & Preteen (Grades 1-5)

 

In our Elementary & Preteen ministries, we work to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in their relationship with Jesus through age-appropriate teachings, worship times, and small group activities.


Each month, we introduce a new theme to help kids discover more about God’s character.
