"We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done."Psalm 78:4
It is a joy and privilege to share the love of Christ with the children at Greenwich. We believe that a child’s spiritual development does not happen primarily at church, but with their families in their home. So or mission is to partner with families and supplement what is done in the home by laying down a spiritual foundation, that with God’s help will lead a child to become a follower of Jesus Christ.
Our nursery ministry provides safe, secure and loving care for children ranging in age from infant through preschool age. We provide an infant room, a toddler room and a preschool age room to accomodate ages and provide areas that are safe, quiet for our littlest ones. Our nursery is staffed each Sunday with a Nursery Supervisor along with loving, caring volunteers from within our church family to care for the children while parents attend worship or Sunday school. We provide pagers for parents while their child is in the nursery so that they can be assured we can contact them anytime duing the service or class.
Sunday school, the centerpiece of children’s ministry, is offered at 9:45am for children ages three years through fifth grade.
We have a Preschool Sunday School class (3's/4's class) that grow together in God's Word through Bible lessons, music, and prayer. Using the D6 curriculum, children get to experience activities and listen to the scriptures while building their relationship with Jesus in a real and relevant way.
Our Kindergarten/1st grade class is a dynamic class using the D6 curriculum as they make their way on their faith journey. The lessons include weekly Home Connection sheets to encourage family devotions, prayer and Bible reading activities.
The children of Faith Village Sunday School (elementary grades 2-5) join together for a dynamic Sunday School using the Workshop Rotation Model. The children learn one Bible story for four weeks, rotating to various workshops and learning more and more about God’s love. Workshops include: Thou Art (arts and crafts), Holywood (drama and video), Moved by the Spirit (games), Once Upon a Time (story), and Our Daily Bread (cooking). Each class is staffed with loving volunteer members of our congregation. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in the Christian education of their children. There are many opportunities within the Children’s Ministry to serve and learn along side your children. You will be amazed at how much you will learn from the children!
Children have the option of attending a worship service of their own, following the children’s sermon/blessing in the church service. The children learn elements of worship, scripture memory and music. The children who opt for Jr. Church as part of the 8:45 service are split into two age groups: 4/5’s and Kindergarteners have Jr. Church in the Children’s Wing, and 1st - 5th graders have Jr. Church in the Fellowship Hall. All children who attend the 11:00 Worship and opt for Jr. Church are together in the Children’s Wing.
This is a service and fellowship group for 4th/5th graders. We meet once a month -- usually the third Sunday of each month (but it may vary depending on events planned).
