St. Andrew UMC - Plano

This year, Greenhouse will be a hands-on learning experience that will offer concrete lessons and the opportunity to network with Children's Ministers from around the area who have completed three years of training in A Time for Children with Leanne Hadley. Children's Ministry leaders will offer ways to engage children in an experience with God throughout the liturgical year. You'll leave with ideas you can put into action immediately in your own ministry setting. Bring your pastor! Bring your team! This is not your same old training day! We hope to renew, inspire and challenge you to bloom in new ways in your ministry!
