At Green Street, children are cherished as vital, fully participating members of the faith community. We know God more fully because of the wonderful kids who join us each week, and we seek to help each child know God more fully as well. Here are some of the playful, prayerful activities our kids enjoy!
Playful Praise – On first and third Sundays, Margaret Wages-Hargrave introduces children in the nursery to toddler-friendly songs and worship activities.
Whirl Sunday School – This lectionary-based curriculum from Sparkhouse helps bring Biblical themes and cycles of the Christian Year to life. Classes for ages 5-7 and 8-10 meet every Sunday from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m.
Kidz Corner – At Green Street, we believe it is important for kids to participate in intergenerational worship, so we make sure that there are regular opportunities for even our youngest to be with us in the sanctuary. We also want kids to explore the elements of worship in a space and at a pace that makes sense for them, so on second and fourth Sundays, we invite 5-7 year-olds to special worship readiness sessions we call Kidz Corner.
Go Deep – On Tuesday evenings, Green Street takes faith and fellowship to deeper levels through a variety of special programs. Honoring the natural spirituality of children,The Way of the Child helps 5-10 year-olds nurture an innate sense of wonder and deepen their capacity for prayer and mindfulness. Join us from 6:00 – 6:45 pm. A nursery is available for children under four.
In addition we have a variety of special events throughout the year like a Pumpkin Patch Hayride at Tanglewood, Play dates in the Park, and Souper Server Saturday, and our Stocking Stuffing Christmas Party for the Shalom Project. In play, in prayer and in worship we are Growing Green together! Contact Kim Strong to be added to the newsletter!
