Over the last few months, we have been working on a new philosophy of family ministry at Faith Church. We see the need (because the Bible teaches it) for parents and church to work together for the spiritual growth of children. We summarize it in this way:
The Family Ministry Team at Faith Church exists to partner with parents in helping children become mature followers of Jesus Christ.
We envision a partnership that supports what parents do at home with their kids while providing additional avenues for growth and development at church. Implicit in all of this is the role of the spiritual family, the body of Christ, in caring for and bringing up children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Eph. 6:4)
You can see the full philosophy of ministry HERE.
One of the goals that we want to pursue is putting helpful resources and ideas into parents’ hands. This website will be a significant channel for this. On Fridays in particular, we will be sharing ideas for fun and learning that families can enjoy together.
Check back each week and see what we come up with.
If you have any ideas for family traditions, fun, learning, and spiritual growth, leave them as a comment on this post.
