Our Youngest Gems
Jesus loves the little children, and so do we.
We welcome newborns through 3 year olds in our professionally staffed nursery. The nursery is staffed on Saturday nights from 5:15-6:45 p.m. and Sunday mornings from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
Each child is welcomed into the nursery, and during their time there, each child will hear how much God loves them through a simple Bible story, songs, and fingerplays, and simple prayers.
For parents who want to stay with their children during worship, but need a private space, there is a Cry Room behind the Sanctuary, accessed from the Gathering Place.
What a great joy when we get receive new members of all ages into the body of Christ. For more information about baptism at Gloria Dei, please see our Baptism page.
Our school year preschool for children ages 2-PreK loves to embrace your children with the love of Jesus. For more information.
When you arrive, please ask one of the friendly hospitality members to direct you to one of our to children’s check-in stations. If you have not registered for Check-in, please register now.
At the station, you will be able to register your child. You will then be given a tag for your child and yourself.
We encourage our families to worship together. At approximately 15 minutes into worship, children will be invited to an age-appropriate time of Bible teaching, songs, and games in the east end of the building.
Parents are to pick them up in their classrooms immediately after worship.
Keeping your child safe and secure if our top priority. At check in, every child is given a tag that needs to match the parent’s tag during pick up.
Every volunteer and staff who nurture your child have had federal background checks. We also have video monitors in all the hallways to monitor all the activities.
Since we only begin the faith conversation, we encourage you to daily incorporate the gospel in every aspect of your child’s life. So, on your ay home, ask your children what they learned. After all, you are the most influential and valuable person in their life.
