Cards, Carols & Cookies!  12/15/18,  10am

Join us as we share the love of Christ with the independent living residents at Brookdale and their caregivers. Families will meet at GEBC to make holiday cards and enjoy cookies together at 10am. Then, we'll package cookies for the nurses, cards for the residents, and head over to Brookdale in Glen Ellyn to sing some Christmas carols with them. We hope this is a great morning for our families to spend time together and demonstrate Christ's love to others.

Families of all ages are welcome and feel free to invite and register your friends! Let us know if you'll be coming HERE!

Child Dedication
November 11 || Class October 14
Child dedication is a public commitment by the parents and the church community. You are committing to be a positive example of what it means to be a follower of Christ while praying that one day, your child will make a personal decision to follow Jesus. The Dedication Class will explore the purpose of child dedication, understanding the partnership between God and parents, and highlights resources for raising a spiritual and faithful child.

Created By God
Parent Preview Night: January 23, 2019
This six-week optional class is a biblically-based program resource designed to communicate to fourth and fifth graders that they were incredibly created by God and for His purposes. Kids will understand what is happening to them physically, emotionally, and sexually as they begin maturing. The topics of human sexuality, values, and relationships are approached in a frank, honest, and Bible-based manner. 

Special Services Children’s Programming
We have programs for children infant through Kindergarten for the special holiday services on Thanksgiving Eve, Christmas Eve, Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter.

Each year, the kids in Children’s Ministries adopt a missionary or missionary family. This year we are supporting Kreg & Jenny Mallow with OMF serving in Cambodia. Throughout the year, kids learn about the country and the missionary’s ministry as well as raise money to send needed gifts to the missionary.
