Ministry to children is a vital part of what we do at Gateway Assembly of God.  Your children are very important to us!  It’s a wonderful privilege and blessing to be able to lead children to know Jesus and live for Him!  What a joy it is to see our children know and respond to the love of God as displayed in the lives of those who faithfully minister to them.  We love our kids, and we have something for every child, from birth through seventh grade.

EARLY CHILDHOOD:

Our nursery and toddlers ministry is in an age-specific classroom and designed with the individual child in mind.  This ministry is available for all of our services.  Our desire is to care for each child in a safe and loving environment.  Toddler ministry includes age-level Bible stories as well as supervised play time and interaction with adults and other children.  All of our teachers and workers are screened and trained to provide a safe, godly, and loving place for babies and toddlers.

KID’S ON THE WAY:

“Kids on the Way” is our children’s church program on Sunday mornings.  The ministry is geared toward Pre-K to 6th grade, with our older children having the opportunity to become junior helpers through a leadership program.  In children’s church, the kids experience lively and sincere worship, interactive and illustrated Bible lessons, science lessons that relate to God’s Word, crafts, and other fun activities.  They learn about missions and the principles of giving to bless others and share the Good News of Jesus Christ!  Kids on the Way brings the Bible message in a fun and relevant way that draws kid’s attention and leads them to follow Jesus!

KID’S BIBLE CLUB:

Wednesday night at Gateway is family night!  The children join with the adults for a time of worship and then go to their own kid’s room for Bible Club.  There is never a dull moment in this action-packed hour!  The children learn the Bible in creative and memorable ways, often meeting in small groups where they can interact, put the lessons into practice, and learn ways to apply God’s Word to their lives.

SAFETY:

The safety of our children is of prime importance!  All teachers, leaders, and workers are subject to a mandatory application process.  This includes screening and background checks, references, interviews, and pastoral approval.  Everyone involved in children’s ministry is also given required training and must demonstrate a genuine love for children, as well as a strong dedication to Jesus Christ.  Our kids deserve our best!

We welcome you and your children at Gateway Assembly!  We would love to get to know them and the opportunity to minister to them and teach God’s Word in a loving, caring way in a fun and safe environment!
