Children's Ministries

Jesus said "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."      Matthew 19:14

Nursery

We value safe and fun nursery care, and we want to provide a chance for parents of very small children to be able to participate in the services. Children up to 1 year of age are welcome in our supervised nursery during Sunday services year-round.  A Parents Room is also provided for those who need to tend to their young children during the services. (In August the Nursery is open to parents and infants but supervision may not be available.)

CrossWalk Weekend Children's Ministries

(Sundays, Sept. to June)
Songs, games, Bible stories & activities for children ages 1 to Grade 6! Large & small group experiences are designed to help kids Know Christ, Grow in Christ, Serve Christ and Share Christ with those around them. Children are dismissed for CrossWalk partway through the Sunday services throughout the school year, September to June.
- On September Kick-off and Easter Sunday, special sessions of Children's Ministries take place during the entire services.

  • 1/2 and 3/4 Year Olds
    There's nothing more important than getting kids into God's Word. Kids will delight in the games, art, stickers, story-telling, music, and cool puppets as they learn about God's Word and how to apply it to their lives.
  • Grades K-1 and 2-4
    Children work through exciting curriculum and enjoy Large Group and Small Group times. (Large Group times take place in the gym, with children returning to the lower auditorium for sign-out & parent pick-up.)
  • Grades 5-6
    Kids in grades 5-6  cover biblical topics that help them adjust to the coming teen years while building their faith. Each week these kids meet with grades 2-4 before splitting off for their own class time.

Summer CrossWalk

The Wild Kingdom class (ages 1-2) continues throughout summer, and ages 3 to grade 4 gather as a large group for activities.

Children's Christmas Production

Our yearly Christmas presentations involve kids from preschool age to grade 6!. The children made their 2016 presentations on December 18th in the Sunday service (rescheduled from the 11th). More information about the 2017 presentation will be available in Fall!

  • Pioneer Girls is a Christian club program for girls in grades 2-6. This program gives girls opportunities to learn new skills, make friends, have fun and develop Christian values. Grades 2-3 meet in the Greendale MB Church basement, grades 4-5 meet at River of Life Church (42369 South Sumas Rd.) and grade 6 meets at the Youth House next to GMB.

  • Boys Brigades (Christian Service Brigade) is an outreach program for boys grades 3 to 6. Our goal is to show the boys the love of Christ as we play games, go on outings, earn achievements and study Bible lessons, so they will open their hearts to the Lord. All the boys meet in the Greendale MB facility. Click here for the CSB website.
