A Place of Continuous Prayer
At GMBC, children are not only welcome in our worship service; they are vital participants. We invite families with children to sit near the front so they can get a good view. When the adults sitting near the children share the bulletin, the hymnbooks, the communion elements, and the collection plate with children, the children learn how to worship and add their gifts to the mix.
Although our children are extremely cute, we want to emphasize that they are full-fledged worship participants, not novelties. We try to laugh with them, not at them, and we recognize that they teach us as we watch their enthusiasm and honest expression of feeling.
