STUDENTS & FAMILIES

growing in faith


Our Family Ministry exists to be a loving, inviting, and enthusiastic community where we walk with and encourage family leaders, students, and children alike to explore their God given gifts to live a life that shares God’s Kingdom with those they encounter.

Our Values

PARTNERSHIP

As the family leader, you have the greatest influence on your child’s life. We want to help celebrate your successes and be a resource when you are uncertain about what to do. Families are always stronger with more support!

COMMUNITY

You belong, are valued, and safe in our space. We hope we can feel like home to you as well as challenge you in your faith walk.

IDENTITY

All our children and students are accepted, loved, and have God given worth and purpose. We want to help them seek out these truths.

SERVICE

Whether you serve in worship services, at our food pantry, out of state, or abroad, one of the best ways to put our God given gifts to use is by sharing them those around us through service.
