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 the Church (yellow) with the warm heart of the 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 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, your 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.
Elementary & Preteen (Grades 1-5)
In our Elementary & Preteen ministries, we seek to engage your child’s interest through high-energy music, storytelling, games, and videos along with small group activities to help kids grow in their relationship with Jesus. We also provide parents with support and materials to reinforce each week’s lesson.
A sensory break room is offered on Sunday mornings at 9:30 & 11 for all ages. This class provides activities for sensory breaks and teaches with an adjusted curriculum. It is staffed with an experienced special needs staffer along with other caring volunteers. Parents who are interested in utilizing this opportunity are asked to contact the Special Needs Director Carly Britt ahead of time at
