The Children’s Ministry of Greendale MB Church exists to help children, from nursery to sixth grade, to glorify God and grow to their full potential in Christ by partnering with parents by Knowing, Inspiring, Developing, and Serving. Jesus elevated the status of children in His ministry as no other teacher or spiritual leader had ever done before. He held them, blessed them, commended them and even condemned those who caused them harm. If Jesus had such a high view of children, shouldn’t we?
Little Lambs Nursery - (newborn - ~ 18 months) **For summer services the nursery is available for use but not supervised.** Our AMAZING Nursery staff is committed to providing a safe, loving, and Christ centered atmosphere for your child to enjoy.
The Wild Kingdom - (18 months – 2 years) The Toddler Room is a launching pad for nurturing the faith of the next
generation. The curriculum is an integral beginning – a place of prayer where young children hear foundational Bible stories, learn simple truth statements, and begin to memorize scripture.
Little Wonders - Preschoolers (3 – 4 year olds) Through the curriculum, little children can see and know the greatness of God by blending our own hearts of faith and affection for God with the powerful stories of
our great God of the Old Testament and the testimony of the character and acts of Jesus.
Sprouts - Kindergarten & Grade 1 (5 – 6 year olds) This group goes directly to their classroom and they are picked-up from their classroom. Located in the blue room directly beneath the sanctuary.
R.O.C.K. Kids - Children in Grade 2 & 3 begin their lessons with a worship time in the gym but will be picked-up afterward from their classroom. Located downstairs across from The Wild Kingdom room and next to the Little Wonders Preschool classroom.
Extreme Kids - Children in Grade 4 & 5 begin their lessons with a worship time in the gym but will be picked-up from their classroom. Located between the Sprouts classroom and the downstairs kitchen.
Nursery - the nursery is open 5 minutes before the service until the end - 10:25 - 12. Care-givers are not provided in the Nursery at this time, but parents are welcome to use the Nursery or Parent Room if they need to tend to their infants.
Dismissal, Drop-off and Release - The safety of all children is of utmost importance to us. Therefore, we have guidelines in Children’s Ministry with regards to Drop-off and Pick-up. At this time children will remain with their families during the first part of regular services. Ages 18 months to 2 years, ages 3-6 and grades 2-5 will be dismissed part way through the service through the gym to their different areas. Children will need to be picked up from their classrooms following the service.
Note - If you sign your child into a classroom and then they decide they do not want to go a parent MUST let one of the Teacher’s in the classroom know they will not be participating.
Children attending on a Family Service Sunday will remain in the service with their families.
