Relationships are at the center of Children’s Ministry at Gethsemane. We know that children who feel loved and cared for freely share that love and care for others – positive relationships are contagious. Jesus loved and cared for people and took the time to build relationships. Our leaders emulate the love of Jesus and share that with the children in our care.
Children are in a state of discovery. It’s our goal for them to discover who God is, how He sees them, how much He loves them, and the important role they play in God’s overall plan.

Children’s Ministry (Available during 10 AM Service)
3 Years (potty trained) – 5th Grade
In our Children’s Ministry we use a primarily large group/small group format. Here’s what a general Sunday morning looks like:
- First, check children in our school office to the right of the gym. Parents and Children receive matching stickers for security.
- When worship begins, children go into classroom for their lesson and parents go into worship.
- Following worship check out your child/children directly from their classroom(s) by showing your sticker to the teacher.
- Head back to the courtyard for fellowship, coffee and snacks.
