Early Childhood







Our Children’s Ministry Department 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 aflores@glenkirkchurch.org to be added!

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


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.


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.


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.     


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.


Congratulations to you and your family on your NEW BABY! New Baby Ministry at Glenkirk seeks to care for families with new babies by providing support and prayer during this joyous and exciting time.  If you are welcoming a new baby in your home, we would love to help you with your little one. Volunteers are available to visit your family to pray for your child and present you with our New Baby Welcome package. To sign up for New Baby Family Support or a Baby Announcement, please CLICK HERE to contact Kinsey.
