Children’s Ministry

Partnering With Parents to Make Disciples

Ten Tag Team begins on Sunday, October 11! What is it you ask? Ten Tag Team is a new, interactive challenge for kids to earn ten different tags by memorizing verses, reciting the Lord’s Prayer, and doing service projects! Each child can earn their first tag with a name tag and from there earn the other nine. After collecting all ten, they will be given a prize and become part of the Ten Tag Team. They will earn one tag per week, however the “serve tag” will need to be completed over several weeks. Parents will need to monitor their progress with this. Please contact the Student Ministry Director, Nandrea Groves, if you have any questions!


Awana is a fun and engaging children’s ministry open to all children in our church and community. The stated mission of Awana is to help “reach kids, equip leaders and change the world for God.” AWANA At Home Edition packets have been distributed, but it’s not too late to sign up. Each packet contains the child’s handbook along with instructions for keeping a record of your child’s progress in AWANA. We are hoping that parents are willing to commit to approximately 45 minutes a week of AWANA time with their children. The importance of learning about God’s kingdom and hiding God’s word in our hearts is SO essential in our world today. Children will continue to earn AWANA $ and TREK $. Packets also contain an updated AWANA catalog. We are also tentatively planning once a month covid-friendly in person games and activities in which we celebrate the progress of our AWANA clubbers. Please pray for our AWANA ministry as we navigate these unusual times. Please contact Carol Byrd at carolcbyrd@gmail.com if you are interested in your child participating in this AWANA ministry.



During the COVID Stay-at-Home season, the GBC Student Ministry made some very special videos…especially for kids! Watch engaging and educational Children’s Worship videos around 10-20 minutes long, or the short Kids Connections videos for when you only have 3-5 minutes. Check it all out at https://www.hisgraceforyou.org/kids-connection/.

Every year, we host a week of VBS with the Answers in Genesis VBS Curriculum. During VBS, kids can enjoy fun Bible lessons, crafts, snacks, songs, outdoor games, and a comedy show every evening! Then the entire family is invited to join us at the end of the week for our VBS/Community Family Fun Day! This free event is open to the whole community and all ages. It’s just a fun day with songs, a comedy show, games, a bounce house, dunking booth, crafts, emergency vehicles, balloons, hotdogs, popcorn, sno-cones, candy, and more!


We are very blessed to have a Children’s Choir that sings for special services like Christmas and Easter. There are even opportunities for kids to dance and act in the Children’s Choir for our Christmas Play.
