KIDMIN

EARLY CHILDHOOD GOES ONLINE!

Assistant Director of Children’s Ministries, Delfa Matic, has put together various resources and at-home activities that can be done with your child and/or together as a family! We encourage you all to utilize these, as it will not only keep a sense of normalcy for Sunday mornings; but it will also be a great way for your child to learn faith cues from you! Click on the EC ONLINE tab above to learn how to access this material.

If you are not currently receiving emails from our Children’s Ministry Department, please email amcmahon@glenkirkchurch.org to be added!

  • Sunday school will not meet in person.
  • AWANA Programs will not meet in person.

NEWBORN – KINDER

At Glenkirk’s KidMin, we see our ministry to children and their families as a partnership between the church and home. When we gather on weekends, our hope is to start conversations with children that will travel home with them and continue throughout the week.


NEWBORN – TODDLERS

For our newborns through toddlers, we demonstrate Christ’s love by providing a safe environment where children can play and be nurtured. We recommend that you bring a diaper bag with the following in it:

  • One or two disposable diapers
  • If your child wears cloth diapers, please include a large ziplock bag for changing. Pocket and all-in-ones only, please.
  • Pacifier if needed
  • Change of clothes in case they are needed
  • A bottle of milk, juice, or water.

TWO YEAR OLDS – KINDERGARTEN

After a time of fun activities in their classrooms, the children move to Large Group time for worship, to learn the monthly Bible verse, and listen to a Bible lesson. After Large Group time, they then move back to their classrooms for fellowship and prayer, group discussion on the story and its life application, and do a craft to take home.     


DEDICATIONS AND BAPTISM

Baby dedications and baptisms take place on various Sundays throughout the year in our worship services. For more information or to schedule a baptism, please email Kinsey.

For the month of July, we will continue with the theme on Believing in Jesus. For this week, our story is about Peter’s denial of Jesus. There is a Parent Lesson Guide to help you review the story with your child and the bible verse with the actions that go with it.

Ocean Commotion Virtual VBS | July 13-17, 2020

Ocean explorers- prepare to embark on an adventure like no other! Glenkirk’s Ocean Commotion Virtual VBS is fast-approaching, so get ready to be completely submerged in God’s love as we dive deep into learning more about Jesus and find truth below the surface! We are super excited to embark on a brand new Virtual VBS journey on July 13-17!
 
Our Children’s Department, staff, and volunteers have been working hard to develop a brand new Virtual VBS experience! Each child who registers will receive a “Virtual VBS” kit delivered to their doorstep the weekend before VBS. This kit will include all of the supplies that they will need in order to participate throughout the week. Everything from craft supplies, to science experiment ingredients, to meaningful family discussion starters that can be used after each day is done – along with a few surprises
 
With this kit, you will receive a schedule of events for each day and instructions on how to follow along. We are excited for you all to join us as we participate in this brand new VBS experience TOGETHER! While we had all hoped that it would work out to be together on campus for this, it has become clear that this unfortunately isn’t part of God’s plan for us this Summer.
 
Glenkirk’s Ocean Commotion is completely FULL! We are so excited to have you all joining us virtually so soon! If you forgot to sign up or missed the cutoff, and you are interested in still having your child participate in our VBS activities, please contact Amber McMahon at amcmahon@glenkirkchurch.org.
