We believe God has called parents to be the lead and primary disciple-makers in their homes (cf. Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Ephesians 6:4, Psalm 78:4). From the time children are born until they leave home, we want to walk shoulder-to-shoulder as partners with our parents and families.
Our approach to our Kids Ministry is simple: we want to glorify God by equipping and encouraging children and families to live for Christ.
Green Level Baptist Church Children’s Ministry exists to partner with parents to see children transformed by the life-changing message of the Gospel. Through small group Bible study, service opportunities, and ministry teams children will be discipled and given opportunities to share their faith. Our ultimate goal is to equip children to leave our children’s ministry with a passion for God and for others.
We have a dedicated team that strives to reach kids where they are and help them to come to a better understanding of who God is. All volunteers and paid employees are professionally background checked.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by our page! This is really just the front door to our Kids Ministry, and the best way to experience what’s inside is to step through the door and come visit! My wife, Rachel, and I have a strong desire to see kids and teenagers make the right decisions in life, obey and honor their parents, and serve God with their lives. If there is a way I can pray for you or your family, please contact me and let me know! – Pastor Marshall
Our Sunday morning Bible study time for kids!
During our Sunday morning worship service, we offer KidLevel for children through 2nd Grade. Babies through 2nd graders remain in their Sunday School classrooms during the worship hour transitioning from Sunday School to a format resembling our worship service. The children sing, pray, take up an offering, and hear a Bible message.
Kidlevel is a fun place for kids to make friends and learn about God. It is an age-appropriate environment for kids, Kindergarten – 2nd graders, that takes place during the scheduled service. Our goal is to teach every kid to trust God no matter what, to make wise choices, and to treat others as they want to be treated.
In KidLevel, our kids experience:
High-energy and creative presentation of God’s word
Small groups where relationships are encouraged by leaders, helpers, and other friends
Relevant Bible principles that can be reinforced by parents
* The only exception is the first Sunday of each month. On these Sundays, all elementary-aged children worship with their families in the sanctuary (no K-2nd grade KidLevel).
The 3rd through 5th grade students attend worship with their families. Pastor Marshall has children's bulletins available for kids to follow along and remain engaged during the sermon. Additionally, we include our children in the worship service by training them to serve as ushers and greeters, passing out bulletins, welcoming guests, collecting the offering, reading scripture and praying during our call to worship.
We do not view our children as the "church of the future" but rather as a vital and energetic part of the church family today. Giving children opportunities to serve and worship alongside our church family fosters a sense of history, a love of corporate worship and lays the foundation of discipleship.
Awana begins on Wednesday, October 9th. On Wednesday evenings during the school year, we use Awana to help our kids age-2 through 5th Grade know, love and serve Jesus. For more information about Awana and/or to register your child, please please click here.
In addition to our weekly schedule, we host special events throughout the year. To view those, please click here.
