At Green’s Farms Church, we’re passionate about our ministry with children! We welcome every child to feel God’s love by experiencing Christian community. We introduce young disciples to God’s story as told in the Bible. And we encourage each child to develop a personal relationship with the God revealed in Jesus Christ.
Our goal is to help children and families engage in faith as a way of life. Schedules today are often hectic and fragmented, making shared time a precious commodity, so at GFC the whole family begins each Sunday morning together in the worship service.
After the Children’s Message kids head off to their classrooms and the fun begins! Director Lynn Rider leads a team of enthusiastic teachers including interns from Yale Divinity School. Together they turn classrooms into places where young students make God’s story their story. Using hands-on activities (science experiments, games, art projects, cooking – we’ll try almost anything!) children learn what it means to be disciples by praying, laughing, forgiving, and learning the stories of the Bible using a plan of study that follows the lectionary readings for the seasons of the Church year.
