Welcoming children into the church community

Jesus welcomed children into the midst of his community, and so do we.

Children become part of the Greystone Baptist community by:

  • Worshiping with families in an intergenerational family of faith
  • Playing with other children and enjoying fellowship together
  • Joining together for camps, retreats, Vacation Bible School, field trips and special events
  • Developing relationships with adult leaders
  • Eating meals together with the church family
  • Participating in intergenerational church wide activities 

Nurturing understanding and developing faith

Helping our children know the stories of our Bible and faith and discovering how to apply these lessons to their own lives is important to us. It is through these learning opportunities that children begin to build a personal knowledge of and relationship with Christ. Regular learning opportunities include:

  • Journeys Bible Study (Sunday Mornings at 11:00 am)
  • Missions Education about global and local missions Children’s Choir
  • Special messages for children during worship
  • Unique, interactive worship opportunities and prayer experiences
  • Special classes and retreats
  • Topical and relevant classes for parents to encourage and support them as the primary guide in a child’s faith development

Living out their faith

We give children opportunities to put their faith into action in their daily lives. Often, these opportunities involve service to others. Some of these opportunities are church-wide intergenerational while others are designed specifically for children:

  • Packaging meals for STOP Hunger now
  • Supporting CBF field personnel through special collections
  • Contributing local hunger relief ministries through food collections
  • Working in Greystone’s Community Garden
  • Remembering the needs of the congregation by making cards and other crafts for older members and those on our prayer list
