Glendale seeks to provide children a safe + loving environment where they can learn about the teachings of Jesus.
Our kids ministry at Glendale offers the opportunity for children to grow in their faith through studying bible stories that we still remember today. We prepare our young people to grow in service to God, family and self through activities that connect us to one another and to Jesus – not to mention while having some fun!
Small Group for Kids – Sundays @ 9am
Find us in the Glendale Kids classroom on the first floor – all are welcome!
This small group for kids will feature active-learning experiences to catch kids’ interest and teach them lessons they’ll remember, interactive Bible stories to help even the youngest kids grasp the real meaning of Scripture with life applications to encourage children to use what they’ve learned.
Winter 2020 Kids Study: Minor Prophets
Who are these guys anyway? Other than Jonah, the minor prophets of the Old Testament often get overlooked. We’ll spend a few weeks trying to get a little more familiar with them.
Have Questions? Contact our Kids’ Lead Teacher, Caddie Woodroof.
Once a month, Romper + Shadow (our favorite stuffed animal friends), join us in worship to talk about the day’s scripture so all ages can understand some challenging passages we dig into in the Bible. These two bring humor that is great for all ages to enjoy!
Speaking of worship, we believe it is important that young people have the opportunity to play an active part in worship services. Children at Glendale are greeters, acolytes, scripture readers, musicians and serve in other way during our worship services each week @ 10am!
Mission + Service Opportunities for Children
We are intentional in being active outside the doors of our building and welcome kids of all ages to help us make a difference in the lives of others! Many of the missions we are involved in are great opportunities for kids to get involved like Room In The Inn, putting together snack packs for youth in need for Oasis Center, walking with us at Nashville PRIDE, writing letters to our incarcerated siblings and many more ways to serve. Check out GlendaleUMC.org/Serve for more information on some of the ongoing opportunities for all ages to make a difference.
