Overview of the Children's Ministry
As a ministry, we seek to teach the children who God is, His plans for them and how they should respond to Him.
Children's Ministry during services
The Children's Ministry currently caters to children from ages up to 12 years old during the Sunday morning service.
For children ages 3 to 12, their programme takes place during 9.30am to 10.30am. For the first part of the service, children will join their parents and the rest of the church in the sanctuary for worship, before being dismissed. During their class, the children will be taken through lessons following the sermon schedule from the pulpit.
For children below the age of 3, there is a nursery service from 9am to 10.30 am. Parents can drop off their infants before the start of the service, to be cared for by a dedicated team of church members. During this time, the children will be ministered to in lesson and play. The Nursery is located in the Attic (Room 503) and is equipped for feeding, napping and formula preparation. Diaper changing stations are available at the handicap toilets on each floor.
At GBC, we are also family dedications during the regular worship service. This is not to baptise the children, but it serves as an opportunity for parents and the rest of the church to commit to discipling the children whom God has entrusted to us. Find out more about our family dedications here.
