Children's Ministry at The Glade Church - leading children to treasure Christ and courageously make Him known

We partner with families & volunteer leaders to:

  • Introduce children to Jesus
  • Inspire awe of God in children's hearts & minds
  • Invest in each child

We serve families with children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Our team of staff and volunteers provide a fun, safe environment for your child to make friends and learn about God.


FIRST TIME GUESTS

We are so excited to have you join us, and we want the process to be as easy as possible. When you arrive at our church, park in the guest spaces in the big parking lot and enter under the covered drive-thru with glass doors. There will be greeters there to welcome you in the foyer at the "New Here" desk.  We'll escort you to the kids check-in station.

You can save time by clicking the link below and pre-registering your children.

SUNDAY MORNINGS 

We host Children's Programming at both the 9am and 10:30 services.

In every session, our leaders call names and build relationships with kids.  We open the Bible and read from God's Word because nothing shapes our hearts and minds like the truth of scripture.  Each session includes a time of prayer -- someimtes all together, sometimes kid-led, sometimes modeled by a teacher.  To stay current with what kids are learning week-to-week, subscribe to the Children's Ministry Newsletter.

 


WEDNESDAY NIGHT PROGRAMMING 

January 17 - March 20

We will have normal children's programming and adult groups through March 13th.  Because of the snow/ice cancellation in January, we've extended through March 13th so adult ministry groups have all 8 sessions originally scheduled.

On March 20th, we have a special Christian Worldview Adult Gathering in the Worship Center for all adults, and there will be children's programming on that night as well.

FEBRUARY MISSIONS FOCUS

FOOD PANTRY RESTOCK

In each grade-level classroom, we have a grocery bag with food items listed for the class to collect.  

Leaders and parents can talk with your kids and encourage them to consider bringing something for their class bag.  In class, the kids can pray for the ministry opportunities that come along with meeting physical needs like hunger - we also have opportunities to share the love of Christ.

On February 25th, each grade can place their bags under the grade number in the hallway! (members can still place their food pantry bags in the containers downstairs, but this will be a fun visual reminder for kids!)


 

QUESTIONS FROM KIDS 

We are here to support you when answering your child's questions about Jesus, salvation, baptism, and sin. Here are tools we use in Glade Kids ministry when talking about salvation, picking a Bible, or talking about Baptism.
