Kids Ministry

Plant Seeds of the Gospel. Partner with Family. Play!


Green Kids Ministry (GKM) strives to raise up the next generation for Christ, showing them how to live for God and how to follow Jesus with their whole hearts. We’re excited to offer safe, fun, interactive environments for kids from birth through 5th grade where this hope becomes a reality. 


Beyond Sundays

Community is important at every age! We are proud to host preschool playgroups on Thursday mornings for moms, grandmas, and female caregivers of young children, and we love our Fun Fridays on Friday nights for pre-teen kids in 4th and 5th grade. Reach out to learn more about how we are intentionally building community for preschoolers, pre-teens, and their families!

Faith Milestones

We celebrate with families when we get to be a part of your child’s special moments! From dedicating your young child to God to helping your pre-teen follow Jesus’ instruction to be baptized, we’re here for all the milestones on the path toward following Jesus.

LifeWise Academy

Lifewise Academy is a Released Time Religious Instruction program which exists to reach students in public schools with the gospel. Under "little-known" Released Time laws, students can be released from public school during the school day to attend religious classes, provided the program is off school property, privately funded, and parent permitted. We're excited to begin the process of partnering with Green Local Schools to host LifeWise Academy here in our building!

To learn more about our growing partnership with LifeWise Academy and Green Local Schools, and how you might get involved, check out the Community Partners section of our Local Outreach page!
