Children’s Church
Garris Chapel is a Church that we truly believe is right in the middle where God is blessing. One of the many ways God blesses us is through our children. We have a very large number of children at GC that love to worship Jesus! Each Sunday children grades Kindergarten through 5th grade have the opportunity to attend Children Church. This takes place weekly during the 2nd half of the 10:45am service. During this time the children participate in arts and crafts, music, bible stories, and other activities that coincide with Pastor Jerry’s message. This ministry is headed up by Jim and Julie Slye. To know how you can assist or become actively involved in this ministry please contact Julie at jcslye@nc.rr.com.

Nursery Care
We have childcare available for children ages birth to 2 years of age in Nursery 1, and Nursery 2 for preschool age children. We are always looking for folks who love to spoil the little ones. Please contact Vicky Lucas at vicky@suddenlink.net to find out how to get involved with this ministry.

Acolytes
Are you looking to get your elementary aged student involved? Our Acolyte Ministry is a great way to get them started. Each week, we begin our services by having our Acolytes come forward to light the candles on the Altar Table. This symbolizes the presence of the Holy Spirit and acknowledging that Jesus is the light of the world. If you would like to learn about how to get your child involved in this ministry, please contact Linda Larimore at gldma@earthlink.net or Sue Miller at suemillerr@aol.com.
