Greenville Oaks Children’s Ministry partners with families in showing the love of Jesus to and through our children. Some of the ministries which help us to further this purpose include:

6th Grade

Our 6th Grade ministry serves as a bridge between Children's Ministry and Student Ministry. We provide a safe environment that will grow and nurture 6th grader's faith in this unique, yet significant time of their development. We also focus on connecting families with 6th graders. We meet for Sunday morning Bible class and once a month for an event focused on building friendships, having fun, and serving the community.
