Outpour Kids at GCC
At Grace Community Church, we are passionate about providing opportunities for children (1st-8th grade) to learn how to serve with excellence in the arts for the purpose of drawing others closer to Jesus. This brand new music program is open to ALL children in our community - those who are members of GCC, have a wonderful church home already or may be looking to get plugged in somewhere. We are equipping children to use their gifts in service for The Kingdom!
Helping children discover how to create with passion, excellence, and purpose (P.E.P.) while growing in a knowledge of and love for Jesus.
To have passion about serving with excellence in the arts for the purpose of drawing other closer to Jesus.

Join Jonas Joppa and the rest of the God Squad from Alleluia Aquatic Academy as they venture out in a submarine to learn more about God through His underwater world. Under Professor Gill's direction, the students learn to navigate the sometimes murky waters of life by seeking God's Word daily. Once they ask God to open their eyes, ears and hearts, they begin to realize the depth of God's love for them. So come along and experience Under God's Sea in 3D!
