Our Ministries

Child Care - We provide a safe and loving environment for our smallest of worshipers. Our nursery volunteers are dedicated to caring, nurturing and loving children and showing them the love of God.

Sunday School Bible Study - We offer classes ranging from Pre-K to Senior Adult. Each class is structured in smaller, intimate settings where God's Word is studied and the bonds of friendship can occur.

Our GYM (God, You & Me) - Our GYM time takes place on the fourth Sunday of each month. It is a special hour held for K-5th graders in our gymnasium during the worship service.  During the rest of the month families are encouraged to worhip together.

Kids in Action- On Wednesday evenings our young children gather together to learn the basic Bible Truths through Bible lessons, song, games and play. This is a special time for our kids to come together to learn about Jesus and to bond in friendships.

Children's Choir - Our Children's Choir is for children in the 4th to 5th grade. Once a week the children meet to practice singing and once a month our Children's Choir sings during the Morning Worship Service.

Women's Missionary Union - The WMU provide us with many opportunities to support different service projects and missions around the world including: Operation Christmas Child, Lottie Moon, Annie Armstrong, Baptist Children's Homes, as well as local and regional ministries.

Stay Young and Happy Club (S.Y.A.H.) - Our senior adults meet once a month to fellowship, have devotions and a covered dish luncheon. Special guests are invited each month to come and share in song or worship.

Baby Layette Ministry - We work with LOVE, Inc. to supply mothers in need with baskets that are filled with the basic baby supplies: diapers, blankets, bottles, sheets, clothes, etc. We also supply extras like cribs, swings, bathtubs, playpens and other items when they are made available to us.

Hospice Meal - Throughout the year on specified Sundays we provide a homecooked meal to the family waiting room of the Hospice Unit at Presbyterian Hospital.

Room-In-The-Inn - Several times during the Winter months we provide and serve dinner and breakfast to the homeless who stay overnight at Kilgo United Methodist Church. Several of our members also stay overnight.

Our History

Green Memorial began as a mission, organized by fifty-two members of the Ninth Avenue Baptist Church of Charlotte, and chartered with two hundred and eight members on May 7,1939.

Marion Jackson Green, for whom the church was named, was its first treasurer, and was the central figure in the envisionment and formation of the new church.  In its early months, the church met in school buildings in the Midwood area; but by late in the first year of its life, property was purchased on The Plaza, and a new building planned.  The first building was on the sight of the present educational building, and was completed in 1942.  The present sanctuary was completed in 1952, and its impressive architecture is a landmark on The Plaza.

Looking ahead to where Green Memorial Baptists are going, and to what they shall do by the grace of God, gives us a sense of excitement about our purpose.  There are local mission needs; and, there is the ever growing world need of Christ, to which we, as a Southern Baptist church, have always committed ourselves.  How God will use us near and far we cannot yet say; but here we invest our lives for His kingdom and His glory!

Our Current Members

While we try to stay away from labels, there are some characteristics that describe us.  We average around seventy people at our Sunday morning services.  The friendliness of our members, however, fills whatever space is available. We welcome anyone to come join us in celebrating God. We sing hymns and contemporary worship songs.  Our style would be considered traditional.  We have a healthy blend of ages at Green Memorial.  We have young families with children as well as an active senior adult population.

Our Beliefs

Our expressed beliefs are conservative in nature.  We believe in one God who exists in a relationship of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  We hold the Bible to be divinely inspired and perfect in the original manuscripts.  We believe that Jesus Christ was totally Divine and totally human.  His death on the cross and bodily resurrection make it possible for us to be free from the constraints of bad choices, rebellious lives, and destructive actions.  We believe that people can change though God's graces.  We believe that life is sacred and the human spirit is eternal.  We believe that man can have a personal relationship with God through Jesus.  While this is not an exhaustive list of what we believe, we feel it gives you a basic understanding of the worldview by which we try to live.
