GLOW KIDS MINISTRY (birth - 5th grade)
Empowering kids to Go Light Our World.
WE DO THIS BY:
PROVIDING environments that allow children to express their worship to God.
Our environments are age-appropriate and compelling. Each age group experiences programs that are both fun and educational.
PARTNERING with parents to instill a global perspective.
From a young age we want children to experience what it means to serve their local and global communities by actively participating in events with their parents.
PREPARING children for life change.
We believe life change can happen at a young age and children can make the decision to follow Christ and experience His life-changing power.
Our Wednesday family night activities include different classes for children every Wednesday during the school year, from 6:30-8:00 PM.
Nursery: Provided for children from birth through age 2.
Preschool: This class, for children ages 3-5, helps to lay the foundation of scripture memorization for your child early on in their life! Through times of teaching, crafts, and games, they will walk away with a better understanding of the Bible and how to apply it to their life.
Konnect Kids: Children in Kindergarten-5th grade come every week to journey to Konnect station, where they learn Bible stories and real life applications from familiar faces. They will then break off into small groups to explore the point and verse even further in an interactive and age appropriate setting.
We love and welcome your whole family in our main Sunday morning service. If you want to give the kids a little wiggle room, we have age appropriate classes that run the entire service(10:15 AM-12:00 PM) for kids of every age.
Nursery: Provided for children from birth through 24 months.
Toddler's: Children ages 2-3 can come to this class to learn new Bible stories and explore how it relates to them. They will learn through compelling storytelling, crafts, games, and, of course, play!
Preschool: Children ages 4-5 will continue to explore stories from the Bible and what those stories teach us. They are given the chance to explore the Bible in a hands-on and exciting learning environment.
Elementary: Children in Kindergarten-5th grade meet every week to dive deeper into what the Bible says and how we can apply it today. We offer kids the opportunity to worship through music, offering, serving, and more!
BGMC, which stands for "Boys & Girls Missionary Challenge", is how we give to missionaries around the world to spread the Good News about what Jesus did for us. On the second Sunday of every month, we learn in the elementary service about a new country that BGMC gives to, and renew excitement in the children for giving to missions. We also have focused giving challenges throughout the year to help us reach our giving goals.
Be sure to join us on the months with 5th Sundays (typically 4 times a year) for a special family service. Nursery is still provided as normal, but the remainder of the church meets together in the sanctuary for a time of worship. We sing songs, take communion, play games, have a special interactive teaching time for all kids on the stage, as well as the normal parts of our weekly service. We believe that this is one way we can partner with parents in modeling worship for our youngest members!
We travel every year around the state to participate in events with other churches, connecting our local kids with each other, their leaders, and thousands of other kids just like them! In March we attend the Kids' Worship XP (Experience), an action-packed, overnight event that exposes our kids to new ways to experience God and His presence. Every summer we attend Kids Camp at Lake Geneva Christian Center, where we have a whole week to play outside, get messy, swim in the lake, make new friends, and above all else, grow deeper in our faith.
