Children & Families

GVLC’s Children & Families Ministry is committed to leading families into a growing relationship with Jesus.

Sunday School

Each of our programs is designed with each age group in mind and a commitment to friendship and fun – all in a safe environment with caring, trained staff and volunteers. Kids will learn through drama, music, arts and crafts, reading books and the Bible, games, and discussion.
Sunday School for children age three to grade five meets on Sunday mornings 9:15-10:00 a.m. from September through May .
Our theme for 2024 is “Exploring God’s Truths through Science”.
A typical day includes large group interactive praise and worship, creatively-taught Bible lessons, engaging activities, and prayer.


GVLC is a church that welcomes all families and children to join our worship time. Children are invited and encouraged to attend worship; however, a staffed nursery is available (for infant through pre-school) for those times when children need more activity. The nursery is open during all worship services, Sunday morning education hour, and during adult or parenting classes with caring staff that have completed a background check and interview process and are first-aid, AED, and CPR trained.
