Children


The Children and Family Ministry of Second Presbyterian Church seeks through worship, study, fellowship and service to support families as they grow in faith. Here our children are claimed in baptism, wrapped in love, grounded in the stories of our faith and called by Jesus to lives of faithful discipleship.

    Ann VanMeter
    Interim Facilitator of Children and Family Ministries
    (317) 253-6461

    Interim Facilitator of Children and Family Ministries

    (317) 253-6461  | AVanMeter@SecondChurch.org

    As Interim Facilitator for Children and Family Ministry, Ann brings together a love for children and a love for Second Church. She began serving in this position in July 2019 after 25 years of volunteering throughout the ministry. She has served multiple terms as Chairperson of Vacation Bible School and the Children and Family Ministry Team as well as an Elder and a Deacon. She is the proud recipient of a Presbyterian Women Life Membership Award in 2008.

    Ann is a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA. She is always quick to point out that there really are other majors at Georgia Tech besides engineering, as she earned her degree in management. She and her husband Scott were married in the sanctuary in 1997. They are the proud parents of Abbie and Sam. They have lived in Noblesville for 21 years and agree it is a long drive to Second! They once considered finding a church closer to home but realized that Second was their family.

    All those miles later, Scott and Ann have deep appreciation that Second has helped to raise their children. Ann is passionate about Bible Study and has lead them for Presbyterian Women for 15 years. She loves family vacations, especially if there is a beach involved. You can often find her cheering on Sam’s soccer games and Abbie’s speech tournaments. She loves yoga and a good walk.

    Books recommendations: Sensible Shoes (Sharon Garlough Brown), Anxious for Nothing (Max Lucado), The Gift of Imperfection (Brene Brown) and Jesus Calling (Sarah Young)

    Kathryn "Kat" Green-Ross
    Coordinator of Children and Family Ministries
    (317) 253-6461

    Coordinator of Children's Ministries

    (317) 253-6461  | KGreen@SecondChurch.org

    Kathryn “Kat” Green-Ross is the coordinator of Children’s Ministries for the church. Her call is to make space for all of the voices of God’s people…especially the children. Kat’s understanding of “church” is a holy collaboration for Christ that is playful, prayerful, and programmatically well integrated into the life of the church. Through Kat’s leadership, “Child Forward” programs remember that a little child will lead them. The children find a “child-sized bite” of mission, discipleship, fellowship, and study waiting for them. Whether it is a putt-putt Bible Study, or an Escape Room study of Paul’s travels, Kat will find a way to engage children in the tangible good news of a life in Christ.

    Kat is a graduate of the University of the South, Sewanee (B.A. in French), Eden Theological Seminary (M.A.P.S), and the University of Missouri (M.L.I.S). Prior to her return to Indiana, Kat was the Assistant Director and Head of Public Services for Westminster College’s Reeves Library. She previously served churches in Texas, Kentucky, and Missouri. She began ministry at Second Presbyterian Church in June of 2016. Kat is an ordained ruling elder in the PC(USA) and a Certified Christian Educator since 2003.

    She and her husband, Ken, live with their son Jack and Kat’s mother, Alice. They each have a grown son and daughter. Kat loves gardening, baking, painting, kayaking, soccer, hockey, and the beach! She has a passion for social justice and the radical transformative love of Christ.
