Children and Youth

Sunday Morning Worship

Children, and the sounds and activities that accompany them, are welcome in all aspects of worship and community life at Glendale! We trust parents to make the decision best for them and their children on any given week. We partner with families by providing opportunities for our younger children during worship as follows:


  • Infant through pre-school children are welcome in the nursery for part or all of the worship experience.  Parents must check their children in and out of the nursery for the safety of our children.
  • Activity Bags are located near the sound booth and are available to help school age children engage in worship.  Please use them and return them after worship.
  • Our Pray Ground is located in the front-right section of the worship center and is designed for children 3 years old through 2nd grade to quietly engage in age-appropriate activities while experiencing worship in the worship center along with their families.  We encourage families to sit near their children in this section and encourage others to sit elsewhere so the space is available for our families.  Parents please note that the items in the Pray Ground are appropriate for children 3 years and older.
