World Changers
Children’s Ministry

GCF’s vision for World Changers Children’s Ministry is that every child will know God intimately and experience His love for them. We want to instill in the hearts and minds of each child that they are a “chosen treasure” to God. Also that God has provided through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus, “chosen treasure” for them. By encouraging each child to experience intimate fellowship with God, we believe they will gain an understanding of who they are in Him so that the culture of this world will not be able to sway them. Our goal is to partner enthusiastically with parents as we, together, guide children to whole-heartedly serve Jesus through obedience, intimate fellowship and godly character.

Children’s Programs at a Glance

Each Sunday, your child can be a part of an exciting and active environment filled with songs, games, video, Biblical teaching, prayer and fellowship.  World Changers offers age appropriate classes for all children 6 weeks through fifth grade.  So while you are experiencing life-changing worship and teaching at Greenville Christian Fellowship, your children are experiencing it as well.  Here at GCF, we desire to grow smaller as we grow larger (reaching our community for Jesus).  We believe that our small group ministry is the key to allowing you to connect and build strong relationships with others and especially for our children in World Changers.  Our hope is for your child to develop a friendship with God and others as they meet in the same small group with a coach (small group adult volunteer) each week.

Nursery
6 weeks to 12 months

World Changers believes in ministering to the needs of every age group, including our smallest members.  Our nursery offers a secure, loving environment where your infants are known, loved and treasured.  Our nursery has age appropriate toys and activities that your child will enjoy.  Our Nursery workers are here to love and give tender care to your babies.  While you as parents are enjoying the adult services, you can rest assured that your babies are receiving personal care in a safe and nurturing environment.

You as the parent will need to bring their diaper bags with the essentials:

  • Diapers and wipes in a labeled diaper bag.  (If you don’t have a label, no worries, we’ll provide one.)
  • Also if you would like for baby to have any formula or food, please bring this.
Nursing Mothers

World Changers knows that this is a special time needing privacy.  Therefore we have a room devoted to your needs.

Dad’s Foyer

Dad helps with his baby, too.  Outside our “Nursery” is an area where Dad can be with baby and watch the service via a monitor.

Pre-School
1-2 Year Olds
12 months (walking) to 30 months – What a wonderful time to begin to fill our precious toddlers’ hearts with the love of Jesus.  Teachers in this class are aware of the rewards and concerns as toddlers separate from their parents.  We work diligently to make this class a fun and enjoyable experience for all by nurturing the child and supporting the parent.  Everything we do within this class is designed to help your child understand that Jesus loves them and wants to be their friend.
3 Year Olds

30 months to 3 year olds – World Changers Preschool knows that preschoolers love to learn.  Therefore we provide interactive learning experiences in a colorful and engaging atmosphere for your child to enjoy.   At this age, children need to have time to be active and interactive.  Therefore, World Changers Preschool provides creative, age-appropriate teaching and activities.  We want your child to experience the love of God flowing through the actions and hearts of our teachers.

4 Years Old – Kindergarten

4 and 5 year olds – So much to do, so little time!  Your child will gain knowledge of who Jesus is through illustrated Bible stories, memory verses, songs, puppets and crafts during their exciting class time.  We will encourage each child to pray in their own words and from their heart to Jesus for needs in their life as well as other needs that are shared in the class.  If they know they can pray and see Jesus meet their needs at this early age, this should give them confidence to pray about everything—big or little.  Thanksgiving in song and prayer will be enjoyed.  From illustrated Bible lessons, stories demonstrating the Bible theme, crafts, songs, prayer and playtime, your child will learn God’s Word in bite-size pieces that are age appropriate.

School-Age
World Changers Children’s Church
First through fifth graders – Every week your child will have the opportunity to participate in World Changers Children’s Church.  This venue combines high-energy activities with Bible based teaching.  A combination of games, interesting puppet characters, big screen clips and songs will capture your child’s attention while showing them that living for God is the best thing out there.  World Changers’ focus is to teach your child how to walk in God’s way of doing things.  As each child learns to walk out God’s Word, they will develop godly character and practices in their lives.  Your child will be presented an opportunity to truly respond to receiving Jesus as their Savior several times through the year.  A part of World Changers is to divide into small groups (Break-Out) based on grades to discuss how to apply today’s principle practically in their own life.  Break-out also provides opportunities to pray for one another and to ask for prayer in a small, caring group.
