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. If you want to leave the service to take care of your infant, you can go to the nearby Parlor, where you can hear the service on speakers. 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 led by our Children and Youth team.

LaQruishia Gill, Director of Children’s Ministry, and a team of 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 the stories of the Bible.

Middle School

On Sunday mornings during the school year, 6th-8th graders explore the stories and lessons of our faith through activities and discussions Judi Wallace and Yale Intern Peter Kralovec-Kirchererr. 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, confirmation classes meet for 8th graders who have committed a semester of grappling with the big questions involved with a life of knowing and loving God.

Scripture tells us that we are better together than we are alone.

God wants us to grow in faith together. When we deepen relationships with others, we deepen our relationship with Him.

FAITH FORMATION

On Sunday mornings before worship we meet to read the Bible together, share our faith journeys and learn with Dave Stambaugh, Faith Formation Minister. During the year we offer programs such as BLOOM, a series focused on spiritual and physical wholeness. As a church, we read a book together during Lent.  Some of us also meet regularly in small Covenant Groups to support each other in our journey.

WOMEN’S GROUP

Every week our Parlor is full of prayers, laughter, tears and inspiration as the women of Green’s Farms Church come together to read a book or study the Bible. The group is inter-generational, warm and welcoming. They meet 10 am on Thursdays and child care is available.

SENIORS

GFC seniors build fellowship with an active program. Recent events include evenings of music at the Levitt Pavilion, a sight-seeing cruise around Manhattan, visiting the Yale Center for British Art, and a presentation by Westport’s First Selectman. The group also visits and calls members who cannot attend as regularly as they would like to.

 

 

helping others

Through long-standing relationships with non-profit partners, we support the poor, dispossessed and those in need of Christ’s love in our community and in the wider world.

Every year, we donate 12% of the church’s income to 12 organizations, some of whom we have supported for more than 30 years. Our members – including our children and teens – regularly undertake service projects and mission trips. On Service Day each fall, the whole church goes out to work with our community partners in Norwalk, Westport and Bridgeport.
