kids Ministry

Our goal is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ; teaching them to know God intimately, love Him passionately and to serve Him faithfully.  We desire to build bridges to families and equip them.  In the process, we are committed to enlist, equip and encourage others to do the same.

Sunday Morning

First Time Guests:

Is it your first time at GCAC?  Our children’s ministry wants to make it as easy as possible for you to check your child into their classroom.  Please stop by the Welcome Center, located in the Lobby, and our friendly greeting staff will help you fill out the necessary registration forms for your child.  After that, they will give you a security tag and will walk you to the classroom and answer any questions that you might have.  You can fill out the registration forms ahead of time, however we still ask first time visitors to stop at the Welcome Center when they arrive.  Below is information on Nursery care, as well as all of the classes offered on Sunday mornings.

Special Connections Buddy Program

The Special Connections buddy program is for children who need a little extra help in the classroom during Sunday morning ministries or in our AWANA program on Wednesdays.  We recruit “buddies” to come alongside of kids with hidden or visible special needs to give them an extra hand in the classroom.  If you have a child with special needs that you feel could benefit from the program or know of a family that might be interested, please let us know.  

                                   Awana

AWANA meets on Wednesdays from late September-early May.  We offer two programs so you may choose a time that’s compatible with your family’s schedule.  Session I meets from 3:45-5:15pm and Session II meets from 6:30-8:00pm.  Bible memorization and lessons, games, crafts and other activities are just part of the fun.  We would love to have you join us!

 

Register at the Family Ministries Office Monday-Thursday during the day, or at AWANA during either of the sessions.

Element 56

Grades 5 & 6 – Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 (During AWANA Session II)

Element 56 is our new “youth group” style program for kids in 5th and 6th grade. Different than our AWANA program, it may be just what your “tween” is looking for. During our weekly meetings we will have games, worship, large group teaching, small group accountability, and of course, a ton of fun. We meet every Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:00pm downstairs in the Student Ministry Facility.


Grove City Alliance Church cares very much about this pre-teen age group. We have a desire to help them develop a deeper walk with Christ and to make positive relationships with friends in a Christian environment. We have developed Element 56 to address the needs of this middle school aged group who often feel too old for traditional kids ministry programs but yet are not old enough for our student ministry. We have a great group of committed Christian leaders specifically trained to work with this age group.

Intentional Parenting Life Groups

Do you need support and friendships with other parents as you pursue raising your child intentionally?  Parenting is hard work and we don’t want you to try and do it alone. Join our Intentional Parenting Life Groups and get plugged in!  They are a place where you can be authentic, share your struggles, and have fun together.

 

Our groups meet weekly from September-May and we offer two time options to meet the needs of busy family schedules.


Thursday Nights

This year, our Thursday night group is planning a marriage emphasis since the marriage is the heart of the family. We will begin focusing on this important relationship with the Love & Respect study. Join us on Thursday evenings, each week from 5:45 - 7:45 pm, with an optional potluck twice a month. Childcare is available for the children while the parents are meeting.


Sunday Nights

Our Sunday night group will focus on a blend of parenting and marriage studies to help strengthen both of these areas. Join us as we begin with the Sacred Marriage study on Sunday evenings, weekly from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. There is an optional, weekly potluck that begins at 5:00 pm. Childcare is available for the children while the parents are meeting.
