GAP Ministries and Kids Camps.

Filling gaps in people’s lives while sharing God’s love

During this time of social distancing we are offering a Virtual GAP Kids Camp!

Twice weekly, we will offer by Internet a Bible story, craft and other activities for area children and their families.  Each on-line session will last 20-45 minutes.  Application, dates and times will be posted on this Website.  This is a way to create memories for a lifetime while sharing God’s love with Faith, Fellowship, Food and FUN! The cost for all GAP Kids Camps are free for participating families.     

During the COVID-19 shelter-in-place, all of our onsite offerings are currently cancelled at least until May 28, 2020.  When our doors are reopened, we will offer the following activities for peoples of all ages. 

GAP Kids Camp is an on-site program at the church during spring, summer and winter breaks for boys and girls going into 1st – 6th grade for the summer session. Camps run Monday – Friday from 9am to 3:15pm daily.  Before and after program begins at 8am and ends at 5:15pm. We offer Faith, Fellowship, Food, and FUN through Bible Study, crafts, games, and field tips connect children with God and their community.  Breakfast, lunch and many snacks are provided. 

Applications for the on-site sessions are available (at bottom of page). Dates and times will be announced here as soon as social distancing allows. The cost for all GAP Kids Camps are free for participating families.  

GAP Family Hangouts are held on site at the church unless we go off site for a community outing/event.  This is an opportunity for fellow GAP Families and GAP Staff to gather, share a meal, do a devotional, and some crafts &/or other activities with each other.
