Family Ministries

To fulfill our vision for our new family ministry approach we need YOU to help us. Whether it is through volunteering or spending time in prayer, we hope that you will come along side of us. Stop out at the Family Ministries Table near the cafe area to find a place to plug in, or email brandib@gcumc.org to find your place.

The children and youth of this church have lots of opportunities to plug in.

Jumpstart is our Sunday School programming. During the 9:30 hour, we have an opportunity for our youngest children up through our college students to encounter Christ and jumpstart their week. During the 11:00 hour, we have a time for our children to have a place to jumpstart their week as well. Check your children in at the Family Ministries Table near the cafe area and enjoy your time of worship, either in the Traditional Sanctuary or our Worship Center for our contemporary service.

Ignite runs 6:30-8pm, and takes place Sunday evenings. It is a program for our preteens, middle schoolers and high schoolers. Ignite is a small group format and an opportunity to ignite their flame for the week and connect with others. There is a snack, worship, service and activities.

Merge is our midweek programming that encompasses all ages. We  meet at 5:30pm for a potluck and ministry starts at 6:15pm. There is programming for our smallest children through our high schoolers. During the same time, there are also classes for adults. We are excited to merge all ages for a family night at the church. In the midst of these scheduled programming opportunities, we are planning lots of other ways for all ages to plug in. We cannot wait!

Stay tuned for all the new and exciting things happening at the Purple Door Church.
