Grade School

 (1st-5th Grade)

At GFMC, we believe children are the church of today! We believe children are given same Holy Spirit adults are given! Our ministry to Grade School children include Sunday morning, Wednesday night, seasonal events and more. 

Sunday Morning Schedule: 

9:45 am: Kid's Church in the LOFT for kids in grades 1st-5th. 

11:00 am:  In-Person Service:  Grade School children attend the first part of the worship service with their parents and are dismissed to Growth Classes (similar to Sunday school) prior to the sermon. On the first Sunday of the month, Grade School kids stay in the service to take communion with their family. 

Wednesday Nights (ROOTS): During the school year, ROOTS meets in the LOFT at 6:45-8:00. Kids will social distance and sit in assigned seats.  This is a high energy large group time of praise, worship and teaching with the goal of helping to develop fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ who are deepening their roots in Him.
