At Garland, we believe that God has made himself known through His creation, His Word, and His Son. We encourage kids to learn as much as they can about their awesome God by studying the Bible for themselves.
In addition to knowing about God, we want kids to experience a personal relationship with God by trusting in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Our programs highlight the Gospel in a kid-friendly way without watering down its eternal truths. It is never our intention to pressure children into making decisions; however, we often draw attention to key topics such as repentance for sin and faith toward God.
The Children's Department is led by Lina Shankle. Lina has been serving at GBC for the past 30 years. Please contact her if you have any questions regarding upcoming events, volunteering, getting your child involved, etc.
