We are so happy your family has chosen to worship with us.
We want you to feel comfortable knowing your little ones will be well cared for by our skilled volunteers. When you arrive, please check in at the D desk which is easily accessed to the right upon entering at Entrance D.
Sunday Morning Schedule
Life Groups, 9:45am | Extended Teaching, 11:00am
Check in at the D welcome desk located upon entering Entrance D. You will be greeted by our desk volunteers who will ask you to complete a communications card.
The desk volunteer will print a security tag for your child. The tag with your child’s name goes on the child’s back. The remaining tag has a security code that matches your child’s sticker. To ensure your child’s safety, you will need this tag to pick up your child.
Our volunteers will then escort you to your child’s classroom where you will be introduced to their teachers who will love your child and teach him/her about Jesus. If you are needed during the service, we will text you and/or put a parent request message on the worship center screen.
Bring your parent tag to pick up your child in their room. If you need assistance, a volunteer will be available to assist you. For security purposes, a parent tag is required to enter the preschool area.
We have a great group of leaders who are faithful to serve each week and share God’s love with the children. Each volunteer has had age level mentoring/training, as well as a thorough background check. You can be assured your child is being cared for in a safe environment.
9:45am Preschool LifeGroups
Life Groups are where we begin laying a solid foundation for preschoolers to learn the basics of our faith. Parents have the primary responsibility of teaching their children biblical truth, but as a church, we assist them in this task. Babies through Pre-K remain in their class for the extended teaching time. Kindergartners worship with their families and attend Life Group at the same time as their parents.
11:00am Extended Teaching
Babies through Pre-K classes continue teaching time using the same Bible story and Bible verses with different learning experiences. The idea is that if a child only attends this hour, they are still able to receive Bible teaching and instruction.
Childcare through age 4 is generally provided during special church services or during special events, when other programming is not offered.
If there are exceptions (such as Christmas Eve Family services) when childcare or regular programming is not available, you will be notified via churchwidje publications.
Paid childcare workers are carefully screened and supervised to ensure the safety of the preschoolers left in our care.
The Preschool Ministry welcomes all children. If your child has special needs or allergies, please communicate with our Preschool Director, Diane Akins, ahead of time.
Missions Friends meet 6:30 - 7:30 pm year-round for 2 year olds and June through mid-August for 3 year olds through Kindergarten.
2 year old preschoolers learn about people and countries around the world and about the work of Southern Baptist missionaries in these places. They also learn about groups within the United States whom missionaries serve among, such as, the homeless, migrant workers, refugees, ethnic groups, and international students.
During the summer months, 2 year olds through kindergarten participate in Mission Fun Around the World, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm. Each week we focus on a particular country. Children travel to rotational sites where they experience a variety of activities that are similar to the children of the country studied. They also taste food from the country, learn music and hear a mission story.
Beginning at 3 years of age, preschoolers may attend Awana from mid-August through mid-May, 6:15 pm to 7:30 pm.
Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him.
How does Awana fulfill this mission? Through God’s guidance and power, Awana strives to: reach kids, equip leaders and change the world.
Awana offers a fun, proven approach for early evangelism and discipleship. Scripture-based programs and exciting games attract families, promote Bible literacy and help kids develop lifelong faith in Christ.
Grow like Jesus
It is our goal to help your child grow just like Jesus,“in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.” (Luke 2:52)
The Preschool Ministry at Green Street is a cooperative effort between the church and the home as parents and staff team up to teach preschoolers about Jesus. It is our desire to partner with parents to love and disciple the children God has entrusted to us.
We are designed to meet the needs of preschoolers from birth through kindergarten. From our bright, secure facilities to our team of skilled volunteers, we provide the right environment for our youngest members to learn their first lessons about God and His love for them.
Every time your preschooler visits our Preschool Ministry, they will experience Bible truths and stories in a relevant and meaningful way. Our curriculum is age appropriate and Biblically sound.
Learn by Experience
At Green Street, we are committed to helping your preschooler:
Know that Jesus loves him/her.
Begin to associate God with feelings of wonder, love, and happiness.
Desire to talk to God in his/her own way.
Learn that the Bible is a special book and become familiar with and enjoy Bible stories, Bible thoughts, and scriptures that are developmentally appropriate for him/her.
Feel comfortable and happy, loved and wanted, secure and unhurried.
Feel more secure with adults, other children, and in new situations.
Think of church as a place where he or she can have happy experiences and make special friends.
