At GCC, we aim to partner with families to make a generation of disciples who love God, grow in community, and reach out with the love of Christ.

We want to be a church filled with families of all types that are transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Partnering with families to make disciples

The Bridge is our program designed to love and support children, adults, and families affected by disability.


Kid City is our Sunday morning environment for children ages birth to 5th grade and is offered for all ages during all three services. At Kid City, your children will have the opportunity to learn about Jesus in a safe, fun environment while you are worshipping and fellowshipping.

Kid City is located just down the hallway from our sanctuary and main meeting areas. It is less than a one minute walk from the front of the sanctuary to the check-out point of Kid City.

Once securely checked into Kid City, children are divided into the following classrooms:

Nursery: 0-18 months
Toddler Room: 18-36 months
3s Class: 3-4 years old
Pre-K: 4 & 5 year olds (or until your child starts Kindergarten)
Elementary Suite:(they will watch the lesson together in the main room, then divide):
Kindergarten & 1st Grade Class
2nd & 3rd Grade Class
4th & 5th Grade Class
For our nursery and toddler rooms, there is no formalized curriculum. We have found that our youngest children are best served by being prayed over, sung to, and given safe play time during the service.

For our 3-year-old through 5th grade classes, we follow the Gospel Project for Kids curriculum. Each Sunday every child, regardless of age, is learning the same Bible lesson at an age-appropriate level. Your child will watch a video lesson created by the Gospel Project and will be led by our volunteers through a discussion, craft, and/or games related to that lesson.

To help you continue to discussion at home, each child is given an activity sheet to take home with them. These activity sheets have fun games for kids and great discussion starters for parents to use to continue gospel-centered conversations at home.

The safety of all children is of the utmost importance to us; our precautionary policies include:

We have a single access point for all of Kid City, which is monitored at all times. If someone is entering the Kid City area, we know it.

All Kid City volunteers are background checked and required to wear a name tag at all times. If you see a volunteer without a name tag, please alert another volunteer or staff member.

We do not change diapers. You will be paged if your child needs a fresh diaper.

Two volunteers must be with a child at a time. A volunteer will never be alone with your child.

We have a secure check-in and check-out system.
  • When your family checks-in, you will receive a parent/guardian tag and a name tag for each child entering Kid City.
  • Children’s name tags include their age and any medical notes you have provided. They will wear their name tags the entire time they are in Kid City.
  • The parent tag will display a unique code which will be displayed on the screen in the sanctuary if we need to page you during the service.
  • You will need to retain the parent/guardian tag in order to pick up your children at the end of the service. Parent tags are required to pick up children and ensures that children are being picked up by the appropriate party. This is a security measure we take very seriously; thank you for your cooperation!


Gospel Student Ministries includes all of the events we offer for students 6th - 12th grade. Currently, GSM meets on Thursday nights from 7 to 9 p.m. for Engage and on Sunday mornings at our Rivermont campus during the 9:00 a.m. service time as well as during the 11:00 a.m. service at College Hill for a GSM Discipleship Community. GSM also holds retreats, service projects, and Christian concerts at various times throughout the year.

GSM meets two times a week and we'd love to have your student join us!

On Thursday nights  during the school year, students can be dropped off (or walked in, we love meeting parents!) at the rear entrance where a team of volunteers will be available to check them in and walk them upstairs to the suite.

On Sunday mornings for our Discipleship Community, students can meet upstairs in the youth suite at 9:00 a.m. (1301 Rivermont Ave.) or 11:00 a.m. (1101 Floyd St.).

Engage is a casual environment held on Thursday evenings and designed to mimic what our adult attenders experience in a Gospel Community.

For the first hour, students will have snacks, play games, and simply hang out and get to know one another.

During the second hour, the students are led in a time of worship, Bible teaching, and small group discussion. For discussion, students are divided into groups based on gender and age.
On Sunday mornings, our GSM Discipleship Community meets in the youth suite where we do a topical Bible study designed to mimic what our adult attenders experience in one of our Discipleship Communities.

Topics are different than what we study on Thursdays at Engage and are chosen by our GSM leadership based on the needs and issues facing the GCR youth, including things like identity, apologetics, theology, and more.
