WORSHIP ARTS

CREATIVELY USING

WORSHIP ARTS

shadow

We love to use our God-given creative abilities to respond in worship to our heavenly Creator. The arts are such a powerful tool in communicating our worship of God.  We are hungry for the things of the Spirit of God. We believe worship is a “contact sport” versus just rooting from the sidelines. We all get involved. In other words, we’d rather be “in there,” engaged in passionate, artistic worship of Jesus than be “out of it,” passive, unengaged.

MUSICAL STYLES

Modern rock, indie pop, acoustic Americana.

INSTRUMENTATION

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

MUSIC SOURCES

Original compositions plus popular songs from the likes of All Sons and Daughters, BridgeCity, United Pursuit, Kim Walker & Jesus Culture, Zach Williams, Elevation Worship, David Crowder, Brooke Fraser, Strahan, Hillsong United, Chris Tomlin, Bethel Church, Kathyrn Scott, Gateway Church, Paul Baloche and many others.

OUR KIDS LOVE

KIDZONE

shadow
SERIOUSLY HAPPY KIDS

We work hard to make their worship experience a fun one. Your child will learn about Jesus’ amazing grace for them through Bible stories, crafts, and games taught by well-vetted, qualified teachers.

KidZone check-in is from 9:00-9:15am
All children must be checked in by an adult. 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.


NURSERY

Newborn to 2 years


TWOS AND THREES

2 – 3 years

 

We have awesome teachers! Each one of our KidZone teachers undergoes a screening process which includes completing an in-depth application and a criminal background check. We also require specific training for each teacher.

Nursery and 2-3s start at 9:15 when service begins. Elementary Levels 1 and 2 attend worship with their parents and are dismissed to class before the message.

If you’ve got a specific question concerning our program, you can always email our
Children’s Ministry Director Jenn Schubert.

TRIBE

Our Student Ministries

TRIBE

TRIBE – HIGH SCHOOL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS

TRIBE is our gathering of both high school and middle school students every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:30 pm on our GGC campus. We grow deeper in our walk with Jesus and with each other. We relax, chat, hang out over snacks and enjoy group activities. Then shifting gears, we spend time in powerful and passionate worship, great teaching followed by a time of small group discussion and prayer.

They truly are the heart and soul of our effort to become disciples of Christ. Life groups 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.

MISSIONS ABROAD


GGC is a missions-driven church.  For many years we have been committed to sharing the love of Christ in Managua, Nicaragua. So much so that we have adopted a small but growing church there 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 of what’s happening at the Villa…

 

Gulf Gate Church is full of ordinary people who come together for extraordinary purposes to be the hands and feet of Jesus here in Sarasota and beyond. We believe that every Jesus follower plays an intricate part in His plan. Pray about joining us on our mission.
