starting children off on the way they should go
Our children's ministry, TGC Kids, seeks to guide children in their relationship with Christ by providing a loving atmosphere where they are fully accepted as children created in the image of God.
We support parents as the primary disciple-makers and believe in the power of the discipleship through community, with church as family, helping children shape their character to be more like that of Christ.
what to expect
TGC Kids provides a full children's program every Sunday during the worship service at MS 51 (350 5th Avenue at 4th Street) for Babies—Grade 5. Please check-in at the Welcome Desk in the lobby when you arrive:
- Get a name tag for your child (or register your family if you are new)
- Drop-off your child in their classroom, connect with a teacher, and say a quick, reassuring goodbye to your child.
- Pick-up your child immediately after the service is over.

mighty oaks: our preschool program
We use the Orange First Look curriculum in our preschool classes. Each Sunday, our team invites each child to explore the wonder of God's story and meet them where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially.
Preschoolers are building a spiritual foundation so that by the time they head into elementary school, they know three simple, but powerful, truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Adventurers: our elementary program
We use the Orange 252 Kids curriculum in our elementary classes. Each Sunday, our team invites each child into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus by sharing one clear and simple "bottom line" so kids can walk away and remember what matters most.
Everything we teach is based on the three essential truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
