All children must be checked in by an adult*.

NURSERY

Children’s Ministry Director: Jenn Schubert
You can email Jenn at jlschubert42@gmail.com

* When you arrive at our Sunday morning service you will be asked to sign your child in. Your child will have a wristband with his or her name on it and you will be given the corresponding number for pickup after class.

Opportunities to Volunteer
There are various opportunities to serve in KidZone. It’s as much fun for the teachers as it is the kids! Each of our KidZone teachers undergoes a screening process which includes completing a volunteer application and a criminal background check. We also require training for each teacher.

DYNAMIC

STUDENT MINISTRIES

 

HIGH SCHOOL

Tuesday nights from 6:30-8:30 pm our high school students come together at our Student Ministries Director Dan Fink’s home for a casual time to relax, chat, hang out over snacks. Then shifting gears, we spend time in worship followed by a time of Bible teaching.

MIDDLE SCHOOL

Wednesday nights from 6-7:30 pm our middle school students gather for a great time of hanging out with friends over some snacks, energetic group activities, board games or corn hole. Then we get together for a time of worship and teaching.

Keep up to date with all the happenings on our Student Ministry FaceBook page.

DIGGING DEEPER IN

LIFE GROUPS

GGC Life Groups web bannerLife groups truly are the heart and soul of our effort to become disciples of Christ. They are where the rubber meets the road in our spiritual lives and in our day-to-day living.

Contact one of our life group leaders to learn more about their current study and format to see which one fits you and your schedule best.

WORSHIP ARTS

CREATIVELY USING

WORSHIP ARTS

shadow

 

 

 

The Arts, when used in a worship environment, are a powerful tool in communicating our love of Jesus. We use our creative abilities in responding to our heavenly Creator. Whether the media be musical, graphical or technical, we believe God has given us the desire to reflect Him in the arts. We are hungry for the things of the Spirit of God and we want to be engaged in passionate worship rather than to passively observe from the sidelines.

MUSICAL STYLES

Modern rock, Indie pop, Acoustic Americana.

INSTRUMENTATION

Guitar, bass, mandolin, fiddle, drums, cajon, cello, bells, keyboards, backing vocals.

MUSIC SOURCES

Original compositions, plus popular songs from the likes of David Crowder, Brooke Fraser, Hillsong United, Jesus Culture, Chris Tomlin, Bethel Church, Kathyrn Scott, Matt Redman, Gateway Church, Paul Baloche and many others.

GGC is a missions-driven church.  We have for many years been committed to sharing the love of Christ in Managua, Nicaragua. To the point that we have even adopted a small church called Roca Eterna in Managua’s outlying borough, Motastepe.

We are equally committed to a ministry in Managua called Villa Esperanza (Village of Hope) whose goal is to rescue young children from Nicaragua’s sex trade and provide them with a chance for a new beginning and a new life in Jesus. Check out more about what’s happening at the Villa…

Villa Esperanza

Our outreach efforts are made up of an ever-changing group of volunteers brought together to be the hands and feet of Jesus, here in Sarasota and beyond. And every one of us who follows Jesus is a part of His outreach…a part of His mission. Pray about joining us on this mission.
