Children

Jesus said it best, "Let the little children come to me!". So together with children of all ages, we play, pray, sing, serve, worship, laugh, create, and most important of all, grow together in our understanding of what it means for all of us to be children of God. We seek to help children learn of God’s love for them through worship, Sunday School, and other experiences of faith such as Vacation Bible School. And we love when volunteers join us in this enriching journey. Whether you consider yourself "too young," "too old," or "too busy," we need you!

Worship

Children are wanted and welcomed in worship at Glenn. Children’s bulletins and Worship Activity Bags are available at all three services and a special “Children’s Sermon” is a part of the 11:00 a.m. worship service in the Sanctuary. Children lead worship on occasion by reading one of the Scripture lessons, assisting as ushers and greeters, and singing with our children’s choirs.

We provide safe, fun, and loving childcare for infants, toddlers, and pre-school/Kindergarten children during all regularly scheduled worship services and Sunday School:

  • Nursery - Room 200 (transition after 2nd birthday)

  • Two's & Three's - Room 206

  • Pre-K & Kindergarten - Room 310

  • 1st - 5th Grade -Begin in Room 419 - different Stations each week!

All children must be signed in/out by a parent/guardian and we follow our Child/Youth Protection policy for all children and volunteers.

Sunday School

Each Sunday from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m. in the Church School Building, we offer age level appropriate classes for children - from nurturing care and playtime for our infants, to playtime and short Bible stories and activities for Toddlers through 5th graders.

Our Toddler, Pre-K and Kindergarten children explore Bible stories through play, songs, crafts, and snacks.

Our 1st through 5th graders journey together on "The Power Xpress", following a rotation model of encountering a Scripture lesson through multiple media over successive weeks. The rotation “train stops” meet throughout the Church School Building. Children are signed in by a parent/guardian in Room 419 for the All Aboard! Assembly at 10:00 a.m. and then journey to a scheduled “station” each week: Storyland Stop, Music Junction, Creation Station, Cookville, Science Station, or Games Crossing. Parents/guardians - don’t forget your claim ticket and to sign your child out, as we follow our Child/Youth Protection Policy.
