NazKidz   Ministries

learnandgrowAt Garden City Nazarene-GCN we believe that children are the future of our church. With that thought in mind, we have different programs in place to minister to your child at every age level. From newborn to sixth grade, there are activities that teach the children about the love of Jesus.


At the Church of the Nazarene, we believe that there are influences coming from all directions in a child’s life.  We want to work with parents hand in hand to offer a positive influence that can last for all eternity. We want to help bring a light into their lives, by offering a Biblical, colorful experience when they enter our church doors.
We have opportunities to work with your children each week, but ultimately it is the parents that will and should have the most influence.  We want to be a resource to help you as parents train your children up in the way they should go.  In fact, parents bringing their children to church has the most positive influence on a child’s life.  We invite you as the parent to join us either with your child or with one of our adult connect groups.

We have five major areas that we intend to emphasize with your children: fellowship, ministry, worship, discipleship, and evangelism.  We believe these five areas are the building blocks to have a lifelong relationship with Jesus.


Nursery  — Our nursery ministers to infants up to 3 years old.
3 years to 6th Grade — we have classes and activities through out the week that include Sunday School, Cherub Church, Kidz Church, Bible Quizzing and Kidz Connection.  Our teachers help your child to discover life and the love of Jesus with energy and enthusiasm.  GCN offers a variety of classes and activities for your child to meet and fall in love with Jesus.
