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 high school students to encounter Christ and jumpstart their week. During the 11am hour, we have a time for our children to have a place to jumpstart their week as well. Children start off in the Worship Center in the Contemporary Service and then will be led by their teach to the FLC (Family Life Center) for class. This is where pick up takes place.

Ignite runs 6-8pm, 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. Families meet at 5:45pm for a potluck and programming starts at 6:30pm! There is programming for all ages. We have nursery, children and youth classes and a parent class. All of them will learn about the same topic and leave with a take home to continue the study into their week. It is so exciting to have a family night at the church! Take advantage of this opportunity to grow closer to Christ and grow as a family. 

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