Welcome! Children are a vital part of our faith community. Our goal is to partner with families to share the love of God with children and nourish life-long relationships with Christ Jesus. Or, as we put it, to help kids grow in faith.
For more information about our Children's Ministries at Gary Church, please contact Carey Williams Bebar, Director of Children's Ministries, at 630-668-3100 x105 or .
Due to health concerns for children and adult volunteers, we will not hold in-person Kids’ Church or Sunday School right now. However, we will have hands-on, in-person, and virtual offerings each month to keep kids and families connected to God and one another.
Gary Kids @ Home Lessons
Each week in the Gary Kids enews, families will receive a lesson from our Grow curriculum that includes scripture, discussion questions, a video, and a fun activity. To be added to the email list, contact the Church Office.
Take-Home Craft Kits
Created for children ages 3–6, these craft kits provide hands-on fun and help faith grow at home! Each kit comes with supplies, instructions, and a lesson and will be delivered to your door at the beginning of the month.
