At Living Waters Church, our children’s ministry (birth to 5th grade) is called GLOW KIDS, which stands for “Go Light Our World”.
Matthew 5:16 says “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.” Our ministry goal is to creatively teach kids the Gospel of Jesus Christ while providing a safe and age-appropriate environment for them to have fun and connect with God.

To provide the best experience for each child, we have divided the kids into different learning environments based on their age.


 Infants: Birth – Age 1

Toddlers: Ages 2-3

Preschoolers: Ages 4-5

In a warm and loving environment, we teach our youngest members about God’s love and building friendships. We use curriculum that offers music, creative activities and interactive video presentations to teach kids about God’s word!


Kindergarten – 5th Grade

Through fun games, energetic worship and interactive video presentations, we teach this age group core foundations of the Bible. We strive to help each child develop a deeper faith and learn how to make better choices, while building strong and lasting relationships!


Check-In & Security

Check in starts promptly each Sunday at 8:15am and 10:15am.  To check in your child, you will need to provide some basic information to create an account for your family in our data system. You and your child will be given matching ID tags. Your child will wear the name tag portion and the parent dropping off/picking up will need to wear the matching ID barcode tag. At pick up, show your ID barcode tag to a GLOW staff member. Then your child will be released to you.
