At GCC Roanoke, we are committed to nurturing healthy families who grow, worship, and serve together. Our children are equal stakeholders in the Gospel, which motivates us to provide excellent care and instruction.
We have 4 large rooms to accommodate gccKiDS! We use a nationally-recognized curriculum that is regularly updated and has a state-of-the-art, interactive online delivery system and lesson builder. Our lessons are designed to help kids know who Jesus is and recognize the importance of a relationship with Him.
Our rooms and curriculum are separated by age:
Nursery (6 weeks - 23 months)
Toddlers (2 years - 3+ years)
Pre-K - 1st (3+ years - 1st grade)
2nd - 5th grade
Our gccKiDS! team members (wearing red t-shirts) will meet you in the lobby Sunday morning! We will need personal information such as parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child. This information is entered into our database and allows us to provide the best care possible.
Your child’s safety is our first priority. All of our gccKiDs team members are background checked. We use a security tag system for check-in and pick-up, and can readily page parents/guardians during the worship service if necessary.
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT
We want you to know and see what your child is learning each week. Talk to our team members and instructors. Look at the curriculum online. Meet with Erin, our gccKiDS director. Ask your child about what they learned after church and throughout the week. Continue to work on that with them at home and pray as a family throughout each week about your child’s growth and development.
If you have questions about our children’s ministry, please email the Director of gccKiDs, Erin Rajaniemi, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
