GPBC welcomes all children from birth through age 4 or before Kindergarten to The Ark on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights for age-appropriate Bible stories and play. Each class is divided according to age and stage of development so that the teachers can best care for each child on their level. Sunday morning activities include a Bible story lesson, activity & songs, snack and free play time during both worship services.
