the one true God.
in knowledge & faith.
Every Sunday all children experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We are passionate about kids learning about Jesus and growing in their relationship with Him.
We would love to have you and your family as our guests at Gilliam Springs this Sunday. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!
GILLIAM KIDS WILL ALWAYS BE ABOUT...
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! Kids come to love and learn it with stories that come to life through engaging activities and discussion.
As families commit to attending each week, children are placed in groups of familiar faces where relationships grow with God, their leaders, and with other kids.
Jesus on their level
Our environments and lesson materials are taught in a way your child will understand. We want your kids to understand God’s love at every age and stage.
Every volunteer is screened and background -checked, every hallway is monitored by security personnel, and every child has a name tag with parent info, allergies, etc.
Kids love fun! We realize that when your children have fun at church they can’t wait to come back. Your kids will learn about Jesus through games, activities, and energetic songs.
Look for the guest check-in desk right across from the elevator or stairwell. We’ll meet your family, check your child into our database system, and one of our volunteers or staff will lead your child to their age group in worship or small group. Please plan to arrive about 10 minutes early to fill out family info and get to the service without missing anything.
We’ll ask some family info from you upon arrival:
- Parent/Guardian’s names
- Children’s names
- Children’s birthdates
- Your home address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child
You can breathe easy, we’ve got everything covered!
Our amazing volunteers will be waiting at the door for your kids. If we need to contact you during the service, we’ll text you. If we text you a staff member or volunteer will be waiting for you at the desk and will lead you to your child’s room.
