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

Our Sunday School program is aimed at kids in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade. They begin in worship with their families, come forward for Time with the Young Church (the children's lesson), and are then escorted to their classrooms. Youth in 6th grade and above remain in church during worship and are invited to meet at College Hill Presbyterian Church (501 Brodhead St, Easton PA) every first and third Sunday from 6:00 to 7:30 for dinner, fellowship, games, and prayer (see "Fish and Chyps," below). Please email Jen at njjmillers@msn.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.

Sonshine Singers & Intergenerational Chimes

Sonshine Singers is an energetic group of singers and dancers (ages approx. 3 to 9) who rehearse and perform a song or two during worship a few times a year.

Our intergenerational chimes group meets throughout the year, and performs at worship services.

Both are led by the spectacular Tom DiGiovanni.  Contact him at digtom@hotmail.com for more details.
