We believe families and the home shape who we are and who we will become from our faith to our character. Whether you are single, married, a single parent, a blended family, divorced, or a grandparent, you can be intentional at home.
Our Family Ministry is designed to help you take simple steps toward creating a God-honoring home. We have tools and resources to equip you in the relationships within your family unit and win where it matters most. One step at a time, you can build a strong family.
THE FAMILY MINISTRY SEEKS TO CREATE A CULTURE OF INTENTIONAL FAMILIES USING 3 SIMPLE OBJECTIVES.
MAKE IT EASY
We hope to make it easy for you to become intentional at home by providing bite-sized, life-season specific ideas and resources.
MAKE IT LIKELY
We hope to make it more likely that you will become intentional by nudging you to incorporate holy habits into your existing family-life routines. We will remind you several times a year with church-wide initiatives and resources to incorporate into your home.
GIVE IT A CLEAR PATH
We coach parents to nurture the faith of their children one step at a time using birthday specific kits aligned with developmental milestones and rites of passage.
IT STARTS AT HOME
While we believe the home to be the primary place of spiritual formation, the church is an important partner in that journey. That is why the church offers a variety of classes, ministry programs and resources designed to come alongside your family’s faith journey.
The FAMILY MINISTRY exists to increase the likelihood that you will...
Build a life-long, thriving marriage
Introduce your children to Christ
Launch your teens as committed believers
Every marriage is intended to be a masterpiece reflecting THE marriage between God and His people. (Genesis 1:27, Genesis 15, Jeremiah 3, Ephesians 5:22-33, Revelations 21:9)
Those with children and grandchildren are called to disciple the next generation as life’s greatest honor and highest priority. (Exodus 20, Deuteronomy 6, Psalm 78:1-8, Ephesians 6:1-4)
A strong Christian family attracts the next generation and next door neighbor to Christ as we reflect the character of God in our relationships and saturate those around us with the love of Jesus. We conform our lives to the image and example of Christ. (Ephesians 5:1; Philippians 2:1-11; 1 Timothy 3,1 John 4:11-12)
THE ASSESSMENT & PLAN
We want to help each individual be more intentional in the different relationships in their life! The first step of this is knowing where you are, then, making a plan to be more intentional. Start by taking the Assessment and after you see where you are at, whether you are a parent, spouse, grandparent, or single adult, take some time to make a plan on what you will do over the coming months to be more intentional.
