Glory Kids Values


Scripture

The Bible is central; it shows us who God is and his great plan for redemption. All of our teaching is Scripture-based, and we want kids to know and love the Word of God. 


Worship

We worship together through song, prayer, and many other acts of worship.


Prayer

We want kids to know how to pray and to become people of prayer.


Outreach and Service

We want our kids to live out their faith as they serve others and share Christ with the world.


Families

We partner with families to encourage, support, and equip them to lead their kids spiritually at home.


Relationships

We want our kids to build relationships with their small group leaders and to develop lasting friendships with their peers.


Safety

Safety is key. This is a place that is physically and emotionally safe for our kids. All volunteers must complete an application process which includes a background check. We have an electronic check-in system, and we require a pick-up tag for all kids during all of our programs.

Check-in and Security System

FIRST TIME HERE

If you are bringing your children here for the first time, we ask that you check in at our Glory Kids welcome station. Parents will be asked to complete an info card, and we will give you a nametag for your child and a security pick-up tag that you must present when you pick up your child

second time here

The second time you come, you will be able to go to our electronic check-in stations (located in the welcome areas) to print your child’s nametag and security tag from one of our check-in kiosks.

security

When you pick up your child, you will be required to show us your security tag, and we will match the code with the code that is printed on your child’s nametag.

safety

Safety is our commitment- without it, ministry cannot happen. All of our staff and volunteer leaders have passed a background check and the application process for serving with kids. Children will not be released to anyone who does not possess the correct pick-up tag.

Parent/Child Dedication

When God blesses us with the precious gift of a child, it is good to respond to God with thankfulness and a fresh commitment. As we reflect on our responsibility as parents, we naturally seek God’s help and His wisdom. We want the best for our children and that can only be found in God’s plan for parenting.


If you would like to present your child in dedication to the Lord, please contact Amy Hernandez.
