Children’s Church is opened to all ages from age 2 through 6th grade during the 2nd service. While children will be dismissed during the service, if your child is in 3rd through 6th grade they can check in right at the start of service in the kid’s wing and volunteer as a “Kid Teacher!” They will be learning God’s Word through hands on service! Preschool Childcare is available during the 1st service for ages 2 through PreK. Nursery continues to be available during both services. Busy Bags are also available for children to use during the service. Please pick them up in the lobby and return them afterwards.

TOGETHER AGAIN! ONE SERVICE!
Starting Sunday, August 15, Gospel Center will reunite in one worship service. We are excited to be back together after a year of Covid precautions. Sunday School will start at 9:00 AM and the worship service will begin at 10:15 AM. We know that this will be a change of schedule, but we trust that the blessing of being together is worth the adjustment.
Please know that while the church is planning to return to one service on August 15, we will continue to provide the livestream of that service. That service is a significant ministry to those who are homebound and to those who are exploring the possibility of attending Gospel Center. What will change is the time of the livestream. It will coincide with the service start time and be at 10:15 AM .
