People from many faith backgrounds and none at all come together at Green’s Farms Church to discover the God revealed in Jesus Christ and practice faith as a way of life. As our Covenant says: “Our ideal is a church of the open mind, the warm heart, the aspiring soul, and the social vision which ever seeks to express, in all walks of life, the mind and spirit of Jesus.”
Children and Youth
We help children and their families experience and share the love of God.
We encourage each child to develop a personal relationship with the God revealed in Jesus Christ. We strive to welcome everyone, whoever they are and wherever they are on life's journey, to share the good news, and to join us in serving others and sharing the great love of God.
Infants, Toddlers and Twos
You are always welcome to bring little ones into the Meetinghouse for worship, or if you want to leave the service to take care of your infant, our Parlor is right next to the Meetinghouse. Or you can take advantage of our nursery supervised by Maureen Fay, licensed childcare provider. Maureen looks after infants and toddlers in the Beginnings Daycare space.
Kindergarten to Fifth Grade
On Sunday mornings, children and teens worship with their families for the first 10 minutes of the service, then go to classroom for Sunday School. LaQruishia Gill, Children’s Ministry Director, and teaching interns from Yale Divinity School make learning about the Bible a hands-on experience, with science experiments, games, art projects, cooking – all ways for children to learn what it means to be disciples by praying, laughing, forgiving, and learning Bible stories.
On Sunday mornings during the school year, 6th-8th graders explore the stories and lessons of our faith through activities and discussions with Youth Director Becky Stambaugh and Yale Intern Peter Kralovec-Kirchherr. Once a month, kids engage in a hands-on service activity. On Wednesdays, from 6-7 pm, Middle Schoolers gather for fun, fellowship, and faith.On Tuesdays 6-7:30 pm January through May, confirmation classes meet for 8th graders to grapple with the big questions about a life of knowing and loving God.
High Schoolers meet on Thursdays 7-8:30 pm for conversation, fun activities and fellowship. They also have the chance to experience living their faith during an annual June Mission Trip.
