Programs & Ministries
THE GLORY KIDS & YOUTH GROUP
Children's Church & Youth Ministry
At the Glory Center, we offer a Youth Group and The Glory Kids children's ministry. These ministries are run by passionate teachers and youth leaders who care about the spiritual and emotional well-being of your child. Through stories, videos, games and more they facilitate the spiritual growth of our kids. Both the Youth Group and the Glory Kids children's ministry meet on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. following the musical praise time in the main service.
All teachers have been vetted and background checked.
Worship Band Ministry
Worship is at the heart of the Glory Center. With an upbeat contemporary sound, the New Season Band leads us into worship each Sunday. We're honored to have Joe Hogue, an Emmy & Grammy Award winner direct our music program. Musicians and singers are welcome.
The iConnect groups are small groups that meet for 4-6 weeks at a time to explore and discuss relevant Biblical topics. They provide a warm, friendly and casual atmosphere where 7-15 members can grow in relationship with God and in friendship with each other. Our goal is for you to connect on a deeper level with God and to even make a few new friends along the way.
iGNITE (Glory Center's Foundational Courses)
The Ignite Foundational Classes are a 5 level Christian education program which are offered all throughout the year. The goal of Ignite is to provide every member with a basic understanding of who God is, what He offers and what He asks of us. The Ignite Class 101 starts with Discovering Church Membership. If you are ready to take your Christian walk to the next level, sign up for the next available class.
At Glory Center we believe in taking the Gospel to the nations. So we formed Encounter Missions International (EMI) to provide inclusive and LGBT friendly churches in other nations. Since it's inception in 2000, we have planted churches in Asia, Australia and Mexico. For more on the missions work of the Glory Center, check out our missions webpage at EMIglobal.org
GLORY CENTER'S BIBLE SCHOOL
The Glory Center founded the EMI online Bible School to offer advanced Biblical education specifically designed for those who want to train for ministry service. Although the EMI Bible School was originally designed to serve The Glory Center, we are now training students from all over the United States as well as overseas.
Giving Hands was founded by the Glory Center to serve the homeless of our region. Every month a team of volunteers compile and distribute gift bags providing homeless people the little necessities to make life on the street more comfortable. If you would like to volunteer or donate needed items, please contact us.
