Sunday School

At GPS, Sunday School is held August through May for children from age 3 to 5th grade. Class begins at 8:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings. After a lesson and some fun activities, children join the adults in worship for communion, prayers, the closing song, and blessing, all sitting together with the teachers in the front of the sanctuary.

We believe it's important for kids to be a part of worship - to receive communion and offer their praise and prayers to God.

To register your child for Sunday School, complete this form.

If you have any questions, contact Monica, our Family, Children, & Youth Ministry Director.

2018 First Communion Class

The next First Communion class will be on Sunday, March 4th, 2018 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at GPS. Children who are ready* to begin receiving Communion and at least one parent/guardian should plan to attend this class. Children who complete the class will then take their First Communion at our Maundy Thursday worship service (March 29th, 2018). Please sign your child up for the class on the sign-up sheet after it's placed in the foyer by February 25th.

*If you're not sure about your child's readiness for receiving Communion, please feel free to talk with Pastor Rob or Monica, our minister of congregational life, about it.
