Kids of GatewayNaz is committed to being the church of TODAY. In 1 Timothy 4:12 the Apostle Paul reminds us to not allow others to use our youth as a way to see us as weak, less-than, or lacking contribution. In fact, Paul tell us to set the example for other believers. So, at church, we do exactly that! We Love God through worship, prayer, and Bible study. We Love Others by applying the scriptures to our relationships and treating others the way we wish to be treated. And finally, we Serve the World by completing acts of kindness in our schools and neighborhoods and by sending letters to children in other countries. You can see us growing and working hard in our classrooms, and you'll also find that we're leading worship, taking offering, and praying during our weekend services. We are so excited to get to be part of God's amazing plan for His church!

AGE RANGES

EARLY CHILDHOOD

Welcome to Gateway’s Early Childhood Ministries where we believe that children are never too young to learn about Jesus. From the time they first come to the nursery and all the way to their pre-K days we structure and prepare for each developmental stage in age appropriate ways.

NURSERY – (6 Weeks – 3YO)

Every Sunday during each service our nursery is available for children 0-3 years old. You can expect to find nursery staff and caregivers who love your children and point them to Jesus through song, reading, and play-based learning from these early days and years of their little lives.

PRESCHOOL – (3YO – TK)  

We recognize that children at this age and stage are getting a little more independent and offer activities that are structured and filled with lots of crafts, centers, singing, and Bible stories all the while molding, shaping, and nurturing their understanding of who God is.
(We do ask that children in this class be fully potty-trained)

ELEMENTARY AGE

Kids of GatewayNaz Elementary Ministries believes that parents are the primary spiritual leaders of their children, and we seek to partner together with you and come alongside you as you point your children towards a God who loves them and created them in His image and guide them to respond to His love for them.

Children in kindergarten through 5th grade will experience learning about God and worshiping Him through various opportunities that help them know that God is real and they can trust Him and look to Him.
