Every Sunday all children (babies through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We are so passionate about kids learning about Jesus in a way they can understand, and have specifically designed our curriculum in an effort to convey God's love and message to children of all ages.
We would love to see you and your family visit GPKids at a
Gathering Place Church campus this Sunday. Join the fun and
experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!
Look for the area designated for first-time families.
We will meet your family, check your child into our database system, and one of our volunteers will lead your child
to their age-appropriate room.
We will ask for the following personal information:
family members' names, children’s names and birthdates,
address, phone number, and any special instructions
(allergies, special needs) for your child.
You may check in your child at any available station.
After finding your child’s name in the database,
you and your child will be given matching identification tags
that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service,
your child’s last name and identification code will appear on the screen in the auditorium. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
On your way home, be sure to ask your child questions
like, "Did you have fun?" and "What did you learn today?"
It's our goal that every child has a positive
answer to these two questions, every week!
Creative Bible Teaching
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.
We value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their leader and other kids in the group. As families commit to attending the same service each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow.
Our environments and lesson materials are created in a way your child will understand. We are so passionate about kids learning this way that we do not allow them into the service designed for adults and students 6th grade and older.
Every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification number, every volunteer is screened with an interview and federal background check, and every hallway is monitored by security personnel.
Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, singing, and live acting.
