I'm New

Our goal is to encourage children to get acquainted with the other children the Lord has entrusted us with here at Green Street! You won’t feel like you’re the new kid on the street for long, here at Green Street. We have many children who attend elementary schools all over the region so your child will be likely to find a friend quickly and our small group leaders will be excited to welcome them.

The Children's Ministry welcomes all children. If your child has special needs or allergies, please communicate with our Children's Director, Kendra Joyner, ahead of time.

 

Finding Us


When you drive on campus there are several entrances. The easiest way to get to the Children’s Area is to enter the Welcome Center, through the courtyard. UpStreet Children's area (1st through 5th grade) is immediately located to the left of the Welcome desk. We look forward to seeing you here! Click here for campus maps and other helps.

 

Connection Class Small Group


Our UpStreet Children's Desk is where you begin by getting a name tag and a parent tag, as you sign in with one of our Desk Volunteers. They will notify you of where to reconnect with your children at the end of the hour. If somehow you miss it, one of our Welcome Team Volunteers will be happy to lead you there. At the UpStreet Desk, one of our volunteers will assign your child to their connection small group and personally introduce you and your children to their new Connection Class. The children’s schedule normally begins with a large group worship time for the first 15 minutes of the connection hour. They will then move into a small group setting where they learn age appropriate biblical truths together with children their age. 
 

Safety & Security

All of our Green Street Children’s Volunteers and Team Members have gone through a background check. Every Connection Group classroom door has a window and children’s connection hour volunteers serve as teams of two or more in each classroom. Also, members of our Church Safety Team walk the halls and visit rooms during the connection group hours. For added security, we have hired members of the High Point Police Department to remain on our campus during a variety of our gatherings.


Annual Events

Family Easter Egg Hunt - In 2018, we joined the City-Wide Easter Egg Hunt, but each year we will prayerfully consider the option to hold an egg hunt on our campus or choose another opportunity.

Summer Camp - This summer, we will be taking children (who have completed 3rd - 5th grades) to Centri-Kid Camp at Eagle Eyrie Conference Center in Lynchburg, VA. Sign-ups are due now with a non-refundable $50.00 per person deposit. The total cost per child is $375.00 per person. Only 3 spots remain.

FamilyFest - On October 31, or sometime near that date, we hold a trunk-r-treat type community event with face painting, a hot dog supper and other fun and yummy treats.
