We are passionate about investing in the lives of children and their families in Milwaukie and beyond through the love of Jesus Christ!
We’re excited to partner with you on your kids’ faith journey of discovering who Jesus is and learning of His unfailing love for us! We are passionately committed to helping your child develop an understanding of how He is in our everyday life and how His Word guides us to live life each day.
We offer classes for all kids (birth-5th grade) during both our 9:30 AM and our 11:00 AM worship services. Kids check-in and kids classrooms are located in the Family Wing (west end of the building).
When you enter the Family Wing lobby, you will be greeted by one of our friendly volunteers who will help you quickly and easily get your kids checked-in and answer any questions you may have. Safety for your kids is always a top priority for us, and our check-in system will create a name tag for your kids and a secure tag for you to pick them up with. It will also help us know how to accommodate any special physical, medical, or dietary needs your child may have.
Early Childhood classes (Birth-5yrs old) are located in the upper level of the Family Wing.
We have wonderful volunteers just waiting to play with and love on your little one. We offer snacks to those old enough to eat puffs. And no worries if you forgot your diaper bag - we’ve got you covered!

In our 4/5 yr. old (Pre-K) class we continue to build the learning blocks and foundations of Jesus through age appropriate bible stories, songs, and crafts. We offer goldfish and animal crackers for snack.

GP KIDS CLASSES @ 9:30 AM
Morning classes are split into two groups (Kindy-2nd grade & 3rd-5th grade). In this hour, kids will learn all about Jesus with fun loving Leader’s and engaging activities. They dig into the bible, play games and make friends.
GP KIDS CHURCH @ 11:00 AM
Kids Church starts with everyone together for an “opening” introduction to the current week’s lesson. Then, we join the rest of the congregation for worship. After returning downstairs, we break the kids off into two groups (Kindy-2nd grade & 3rd- 5th grade) for small group lessons. This is an interactive, fun filled hour. We come back together at the end for “Closing and Prayer”
