Kids & Youth

Boy with Flowers

Jesus told his disciples to become like little children. For us, that means that our children have so much to show us about how God wants us to be. And so we strive to be a church where everyone feels included and welcome, no matter their age.

We offer all sorts of programs for our little ones and youth, including…

Sunday School

We are excited to offer Sunday School to kids PreK through 12th grade! Our PreK through 5th graders all begin worship with their families in the sanctuary at 10am, and then are invited to Sunday School right after the children's sermon (Time with the Young Church), which usually happens around 10:15am. They remain in Sunday School until the end of worship, usually around 11:00am. (However, on the first Sunday of each month, our children remain in the sanctuary the whole hour, sitting together if they wish, to experience the fullness of worship including communion!).

For our older youth, we offer confirmation (see below), and also Youth Sunday School! Youth Sunday School, taught by Elder Jennifer Miller and Pastor Mary Beth , is for middle and high school students, and is held every 2nd and 4th Sunday from 9:00 to 9:40am.

Please email Lisa at lkolterjahn88@gmail.com if you’d like to learn more about our Sunday School program.

Confirmation

Our confirmation class is offered to youth around middle school age during the school year. In this class, we explore our faith through scripture, through church history, and through our gathered community. We also pray regularly with and for each other. Membership in the church is not required after completing the class. If you know someone who is interested in confirmation at Greenwich Church, please contact Mary Beth at pastormarybeth@gmail.com.
