Children

Welcome! Children are precious and the faith of children is a gift from God! Shaping that faith is the privilege of parents, family, and the faith community. Gloria Dei seeks to support families and offer faith-shaping experiences for children at every stage of their development. Our programs incorporate Gloria Dei's Guiding Principles: we are rooted in beauty, compassion, love, justice, generosity, and Christ. We are intentional about finding ways for children to know they are valued and an important part of the congregation! Check out our many programs for your family below.

If you have any questions please e-mail, Director of Children's Ministries, Kyrstin Schwartz.
