Children@Second

The Children & Families Ministry at Second Presbyterian Church supports families with young children as they live and grow in faith. Children form an integral part of our congregation. They are not just the future of this place; they are the present. We seek to treat them the way Jesus treated children, welcoming them as children, not only as adults in training. We honor their questions and encourage them to wonder. We create spaces where they can experience God, not just learn about God. We teach them about Christ’s endless love. And we marvel as they teach us. If you’d like to know more about baptism or anything related to children’s ministry at Second, please be in touch!

    Coordinator of Children's Ministries

    317-726-5407  | AVanMeter@SecondChurch.org

    As Coordinator for Children's Ministries, 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.
