JCC Kidz is here to broaden every child’s knowledge of Jesus Christ as they grow from newborns all the way through 6th grade. Our leaders are Christian volunteers with background checks who love children. We strive to provide a safe and loving environment where children may see and hear the Word of God and the Spirit of Christ, and thereby grow more in Him- while having FUN

Nursery is available for children from newborn through two years old during every regular service and special services throughout the year. It is staffed by responsible adult volunteers who have undergone a national background check, as well as by responsible teen helpers. Parents may drop off their children 10 minutes before service and should pick them up 10 minutes after service. Every effort is made to provide a safe and clean environment for the infants and toddlers in our nursery.
The goal of our Nursery Ministry is to help our children to:
Our 3's and 4's are a wonderful age! In keeping with our safety policy, they check into the Life Center (like K-6th grade) for a numbered name tag and the adult receives a matching ticket used for pick-up.
In the 11:00 AM service, Preschoolers go upstairs at 11:20 (after using those large muscles to play). Upstairs they will rotate through 4 rooms at 15 minute intervals for age-appropriate activities in Worship, Bible lesson, Crafts and Snack and Play (prayer and interpersonal skills). Children return to the Life Center for play and wait for pick-up about 12:20. We love seeing your children grow – spiritually and physically!
RealKidz is offered on Sunday mornings at the 8:45 and 11:00AM services. There is also Sunday school for all ages from 10:10 – 10:50AM. God’s timeless message is presented in a culturally relevant way through exegetical studies, storytelling, dramas, music, and more. While using creative, exciting methods, we present Biblical truths that are relevant and applicable in a child’s world.
Real56 is an extension of the 11:00AM JCCKidZ for 5thﾠand 6thﾠgraders. These children attend a class upstairs that provides age appropriate lessons with small group discussion where the child can learn with their peers as they grow in Christ.
JCCKidZ Small Groups
These groups are offered Sunday nights at 6:00PM, for children between the ages of 3 and 12 in the Life Center. The purpose of our small group is to allow kids the opportunity to build relationships with their friends, leaders, and most importantly with God. In these meeting kids can come together and interact with the Bible personally, by reading about kids just like them approached with a situations all kids encounter through their young lives. The kids are able to talk about their lives and use the Bible in the situations they encounter.
We welcome volunteers! Opportunities to serve are at all levels – small group leaders, small group helpers, registration, safety monitors, storytellers, games leaders, craft leaders, and sound/video techs, etc.
Our leaders gladly work with all new volunteers and connect them to other volunteers on the team.

My Two Cents
JCCKidZ would like each of us give two cents for every meal we eat (usually 3 per day) to support BGMC to reach thousands of people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We’re asking that you bring your pennies, cash, or check every first of the month - a large Buddy Barrel will be in the lobby area where you can deposit your offerings.
I'll put in my two cents, for what it's worth! How about you?
