Kids  (Kindergarten-5th Grade)

Sundays | 9:45-10:45am

Gloria Dei Kids is a fun and safe environment for children to learn more about Jesus.

What to Expect

Our Kid's Ministry is for students in elementary school. We believe that parents are the primary faith-formers, and we want to come alongside you as you and your family grow in Christ. We encourage parents to attend the Parent Group at the tables by Dei Break Cafe to build relationships with other parents while growing in God's Word.

When You Arrive

You will enter through the Life Center doors, and go to the Kids Check-In Center located just past our Dei Break Cafe. If it is your first time, please allow about 5 minutes to register your child. Our Kids team will help you register your child and show you the check-in procedure for future visits. Please keep your Parent Pick-up Tag handy with your child's code on it.

Schedule

Kids is open on Sundays from 9:45-10:45am. Check-in opens to receive children 15 minutes before.

Parent Group

We have a Parent Group that meets on Sunday mornings at 9:45am at the tables outside of Dei Break Café. Drop-off your kids, grab a cup of coffee, and come connect with other parents as we grow in God's Word together.

Parent Pickup

Your child will receive a name tag that includes their unique security number. You will also receive a parent tag with the same number. We call this the Parent Pick-up Tag. For safety reasons, no one is allowed to pick up your child without the parent tag you receive, so make sure you hang onto it.

If You are Needed

If we ever need to get a hold of you, we will call you on the phone number on file.

May

With the way the 2020s have gone so far, we’ve all had to learn new ways to find resilience. We’ve discovered what it means to get back up when something gets us down . . . and we’ve had to practice that over and over again! Not only that, kids are finishing up a year of school that had more than its share of challenges and uncertainties. Our “Bounce Back” theme for May is a great opportunity for us to lean into this idea, and ultimately remind kids where true resilience really comes from—from our relationship with God. We know that God is always with us, and that God will be there to help us get back up when life knocks us down.

God is strong and faithful, always working in our lives. We might get knocked down from time to time, but when we put our trust in God, we find the strength we need to get back up again. Jesus  showed us how to face life with resilience. No matter what happened, Jesus relied on God to help Him accomplish the mission set before Him. Because of Jesus, we can trust God no matter what. We can bounce back from whatever knocks us down and complete the mission God has for us.

Baptism

We developed the Baptism Class to help parents, and their children, learn more concerning what we believe about baptism and faith formation in the home.

If you desire for your infant or child to be baptized, you can learn more here.

Phase Podcast

Did you know Gloria Dei has a summer podcast? Each week we will be taking a look at the phases, or grades, of our kids. In each conversation we will highlight the changes in their development emotionally, mentally, physically and socially as well as share some stories from parents who just finished that grade with their child.

We hope that you are encouraged, supported, and informed as you enter the next phase in your child's life. We also hope that through this podcast you see that you aren't alone and maybe pick up some tips and tricks from other parents. This parenting journey is rewarding and sometimes hard, but it is never meant to be done alone.
