GSCC has HUGE heart for children of all ages. It is our desire to come alongside families to encourage children in developing a personal relationship with God at an early age, serving as a strong foundation for their lives.

Our Early Childhood Ministry is exciting and inviting! Children thrive in a safe, fun environment designed for their specific age group. GSCC believes in ministering to the needs of children at every age! Rest assured while parents enjoy the adult services, children are being cared for and taught by our qualified staff and servant leaders in an environment created just for them.
Newborn – 23 months Our little ones are being ministered to through praise and worship, Bible verses spoken over them and plenty of love in a safe, nurturing environment as parents attend the adult services. Babies are never too young to have God’s Word spoken over them and encouraging praise and worship surrounding them.
Age 2 - Kindergarten Preschoolers love to learn so we provide interactive, hands-on learning where children can experience God’s love through His Word, prayer, praise and worship, friendships and encouragement from our qualified staff and servant leaders.
Each week, our friendly, fun-loving teachers guide children through interactive Bible stories, exciting activities, tasty snacks and a time for fun in our amazing indoor play park.
As we come alongside families to help children learn more about God, it is our hope that your child will learn:
God LOVES me.
God MADE me
Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever.
Nursing Mothers, we provide a nursing area for your privacy. One of our servant leaders will be happy to help you locate the nursing area.
Babies will be fed pre-measured formula, milk, or juice as provided only by the parent. Toddlers will be provided with a snack.
All toys and surfaces are disinfected after each service with a nontoxic, germicidal spray.
All crib sheets are changed and the mattress is cleaned before a baby occupies that crib.
Please label all items belonging to your child.
Please provide a change of clothing in your child’s bag in case of spills or accidents.
All children’s diapers are checked and changed at least once during each service. The changing stations are disinfected after each use and new gloves and a new disposable liner paper are used for each child. Staff and servant leaders wear latex-free gloves when changing diapers and wash their hands between each child. A “I was changed and prayed for today.” sticker is placed on the front of the child’s diaper, so parents know immediately if the child’s diaper has been changed.
