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 @ 11am

Find us in the Glendale Kids classroom on the first floor after worship – 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.

Have Questions? Contact our Kids’ Lead Teacher, Caddie Woodroof.

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 for more information on some of the ongoing opportunities for all ages to make a difference.
