About GT Kids

GT Kids is a ministry for children, birth through 3rd grade, providing a fun, engaging, and secure environment for children as they learn what it means to trust God.

At GT we value children – not because they are the future church, but because they are the church right now. Working with you, we have a fantastic opportunity to help them nurture friendships, learn biblical truths, and discover that they are deeply loved and valued by God. As a team, our goal is to help build a spiritual foundation by teaching them with age-appropriate Bible-based curriculum that includes worship, prayer, and serving. We are ready to encourage and inspire your children to experience Jesus.

GT Kids Mask Policy

In an effort to continue providing ministry to children on Sunday mornings without disruption, we are updating our masking protocols for GT Kids and GT Preteens. Beginning Sunday, August 29th, masks will be required for children in grades K-6 while they are in their ministry environments.

We will continue to monitor the COVID counts in Berks, as well as updates to vaccine eligibility, and will update this policy when and if possible. Please note that masking for children in grades K-6 is only required when in their ministry environment. It is optional, not required, in any other area of the building.

GT Kids Early Childhood

Birth thru 5-year-olds

Our GT Kids Early Childhood weekly environment is created especially for your infant (six weeks) through preschool-aged children. We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with preschool children. So, you can plan on a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Be on the lookout for fun crafts and big games.

We want our preschoolers to understand:

God made me, God loves me, & Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

We can’t wait to meet them! We know things are busy at this stage of life and your children are learning and growing in amazing ways. We are ready for them!

Please contact us if you have a question.

Baby Dedication

Baby Dedication is a special event designed to celebrate your commitment as a parent to lead your child into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. GT Baby Dedication is offered multiple times per year at all of our locations for children 2 years or younger.

GT Kids Elementary

Kindergarten thru 3rd Grade

We want to give our elementary kids a firm foundation grounded in three basic truths:

  • Wisdom - I need to make the wise choice.
  • Faith​ - I can trust God no matter what.
  • Friendship​ - I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

During our weekend services, our elementary kids participate in Large Group and Small Group activities. In large group, they will engage in an awesome time of worship, games and age-appropriate Bible stories. We use costumes, props, and characters from the story - anything that makes the Bible come to life. In small groups, kids will see how God’s Word fits into their everyday lives, learn how to talk to Him, and build friendships that will last.
Please contact us if you have a question.
