XCITE stands for Xtreme Children Impacting the Earth and is a ministry for the little people of Glenridge church. It is a dynamic, fun and inter-active time during our 9am morning meeting. After worshipping with their parents the children move across to their venues to be empowered for Kingdom living. XCITE Children are taught the Word of God and encounter the Holy Spirit with age appropriate lessons, activities and crafts. Our heart is to bring heaven to earth by being a family community revealing the love of Jesus and His grace.


Promised Land is an environment for 18 to 36 month year olds. It is our heart to make the children feel safe, loved and excited about Jesus through movement, songs, arts and crafts and fun activities. This is a powerful stage in their young lives for building toward saving faith. 2 Timothy 3:15 says, “How from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.”


Throne Zone is an environment for 3 to 5 year olds. It is our heart to share the gospel of the Kingdom with big stories of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. It is a lively and exciting time filled with dance movement, worship songs, puppet shows and creative stories. Age appropriate small groups then follow, where lessons precede a craft time. We help the children to really understand that Jesus loves them, created them and is their best friend.


Heir Force is an environment for the Grade R to Grade 4’s – our 6 to 9 year olds. It is our heart for the kids to experience and know Jesus in a real, deep and personal relationship, and for the children to be loved by God and to engage with exercising their faith by loving others. A lot of energy and interaction takes place in these groups with the lessons being shared in age and gender appropriate groups.


Explosion is our group for tweens from Grades 5-7. Our heart is to empower these children through the Word of God, getting them to apply their faith to real life circumstances and issues they are facing and for them to be knitted into community. Strong relationships that reinforce their identity in Christ and help them understand their destiny and spiritual gifting from God are forged. This is done by fun interactive ice-breakers, lots of relevant and out-of-box questions, prayer, worship songs, socializing, making friends and enjoying fun activities.



The next few weeks we will be starting our discipleship series during which we will discover how to grow in our spiritual walk.
Our journey starts with the amazing curriculum: How to Read the Bible by Seth Dahl
“We will learn to walk with Jesus through the pages of the Bible, so we may become more like Him. Not only will we learn the history of the bible, but we will also learn practical keys for unlocking the scriptures.”
