Children’s Ministries

Join us at King of Glory on a wonderful journey of faith through our Children’s and Family Ministry Programs (Pre-K, Kindergarten, Grades 1-4). We encourage children to become involved at any stage of this incredible journey. All are welcome!

Fall Festival | Sunday, October 31 

After services (from 11-1pm) join us for some family fun! We’ll have lunch, pumpkin games & a pumpkin patch, hayrides, a scavenger hunt and Trunk or Treat (12:30-1pm). Bring the whole family and your friends!

We also need volunteers for Trunk or Treat and for games. If you can help please contact Kaylee at kayleeg@kogaz.org.

Sunday Programming

During the school year we offer Sunday School for those ages 3 to 4th grade, between services (9-9:50am).
We’ll kick off the 2021-22 year on September 12 with a Super Sunday Scavenger Hunt! Register for Sunday School at the link below.

During Sunday services we offer a small activity bag & activity pages for children to enjoy.

During the school year, at the 10:00 service, we have a children’s message before the readings and Children’s Church during the sermon.

We currently have a nursery off of the welcome center that is open to use, but it is not staffed at this time.

Want to get involved? We are always looking for older teens and adults to help with both Sunday School and Children’s Church. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Karissa Finley at the email below.

Kid, Youth and Family Service Event  – Encouraging Cards for Seniors

AZCEND, which runs food bank and Meals-on-Wheels services in Chandler and Gilbert, has requested cards and notes of encouragement for the seniors receiving meals at home. We encourage all families to take some time to make some cards or art! We will collect these cards as a congregation through Palm Sunday.

Why are we doing this? Many seniors are self-quarantining or isolating themselves to be safe during the pandemic, and the delivery drivers are the only people they see on a daily basis.  They would love to have children (and adults) create cards, pictures, and notes of encouragement for our seniors.  Imagine a note or card that a grandparent would like from their grandchildren, or from a friend, and might put up on their fridge. This project can be as simple as providing crayons and a white sheet of paper to a 5 year old and asking them to draw a picture of an animal, or you can make elaborate creations using craft supplies.  The notes/cards/pictures can contain encouraging messages such as “May the sun brighten your day!” or maybe a joke with a picture that goes with it. This is a great project that will bring a smile to the seniors every time they see it on their refrigerator.  They can use any amount of cards, from 2 to 300+.  If the cards are not associated with a holiday, then they can save the extras and use them anytime.

FAITH STEPS 

When a child begins his or her faith journey, there are many steps to take. It is through this journey that each child will come to know and love God. The Children’s Ministry & Crossover Directors have created specific “Faith Steps” – prayers and Bible passages – for children to commit to memory for each of our programs. Children are recognized for their achievements in Worship Services several times yearly.
