Family Ministry

Family Ministry

Our Family Ministry welcomes all families to join us in a variety of ways! We develop, energize, and maintain vibrant programming to support our children, youth and families in their faith journeys from infancy to adulthood. We partner with families to help you grow TOGETHER in your relationship with God by combining the influence of church and home to fuel the faith in the next generation.
