Gateway City Church Kids
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
At Gateway we understand the importance of imparting the love of the Word to our children. A tree typically has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground by the trunk. This trunk is for strength and carries materials from one part of the tree to another. Below the ground, the roots spread out widely; they serve to anchor the tree and extract moisture and nutrients from the soil. Above ground, the branches divide into smaller branches and shoots.
As in this picture of a tree, we at GCC function in the same way, we are deeply rooted in Christ as a House, and we depict ourselves as the “trunk” of all the departments. One of them is our children’s church, they are the branches and they feed and draw nutrients from the main supply. The children’s church are fed that what God is speaking to us as a House corporately, and it gets simplified to teach each age group, at their respective level.
We speak as ONE voice and we move together in ONE direction.
GCC KIDS Comprehensive Children’s Church Manuals
At Gateway City Church, it is our passion and desire to see children impacted by God’s Word and His Spirit. We desire that each child love the Lord their God with all their hearts, minds and strength. Because of this, we have written and designed manuals for our children’s ministry and have seen and experienced how the Holy Spirit has imparted truth and impacted their lives through these manuals. They can be used at children’s church, at home or at schools for devotionals and are written in an easy-to-use way. We encourage you as a Spirit-filled presenter to use the manuals to teach and encourage and as you use these in your classes, be blessed and have life!
Manual 1: Developing a Healthy Mind and Solid Foundations
We need to take the time to lay each brick of truth on a proper foundation in the lives of young children and we should never take these simple truths for granted. It’s vital that we train our children to develop correct thinking patterns. Inside this manual, you will find step-by-step instructions, colourful and creative activities and lessons filled with solid truths all written in a way that is easy to teach.
Manual 2: The Gift of the Holy Spirit and Speaking in Tongues
We strive to make sure that children at Gateway City Church are bapitised in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. This manual helps teach them WHY it’s important as believer’s to speak in a Heavenly language and what the effect will be in their own lives when they do. There are colourful activities and interactive lessons that give an easy and step-by-step guide to learning these truths. This manual will not only benefit the children you teach but will impact your life as you present and learn.
