GloryKids provides buddies to children with special needs in kindergarten - 5th grade so they can attend the same Sunday morning programs as other children. 

With advance registration, the child can have a buddy at 9 AM KidsThrive or at 10:45 AM KidsQuest. If you are interested in setting up a time for your child to visit, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch with you.

GloryKids Offerings

Sensory Room

We provide a sensory room for those who need to take a short break from group programming, whether for sensory seeking or sensory soothing needs. Buddies accompany the child to the sensory room.

Self-contained Classroom

We can provide buddies in a self-contained classroom for children that are medically fragile or may not benefit from being in a large classroom setting.


You must register prior to attending so that we can arrange for a buddy. For questions, please contact Janet Kelley.

  • Donate

    The GloryKids ministry is approved by Perimeter Church to raise money for special needs. This applies not only to fundraising from businesses but from individuals, who can designate tax-deductible gifts to the GloryKids Ministry. These funds will be critical as we expand and enhance the ministry to bring more members of the special needs community into a life-changing encounter with the people and the kingdom of God.

  • ENGAGE! Adult Classes

    We offer an Engage! Women’s Class and an Engage! Men’s Class at the 9 AM service for young adults and adults with special needs. These classes feature a short interactive video teaching time followed by a variety of “hands-on” sensory activities that reinforce and illustrate the lesson in fun and engaging ways. To learn more about the classes, please contact Janet Kelley.
