Family Church Children’s Ministry exists to glorify God through: Evangelizing Children, Encouraging Parents, and Edifying Servants so that the gospel may be spread among our children, families may be supported, and the church may be strengthened.
To accomplish this task we use "The Gospel Story Curriculum" which is a unique, three-year program that helps the families ground children in the gospel story from Genesis to Revelation. Children who begin The Gospel Story Curriculum at age two will learn and absorb the gospel story from Genesis to Revelation three complete times prior to graduating our ministry!
In addition to all of this we also provide a monthly scripture memory verse that is age appropriate for each child that can be picked up at our Parent Resource Desk.
While we invest heavily in the classroom instruction on Sunday mornings, we recognize that the primary responsibility is with the parents to diligently instruct their children to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength (Deut. 6:5-7). To help partner with you as the parent in this most important work, The Gospel Story Curriculum has two family-friendly-complementary devotionals, titled: "Long Story Short:Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God (OT) and Old Story New: Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God (NT). These devotionals provide parents with the tools to lead their families in 5 short devotions throughout the week from the section of Scripture that were taught in their children’s classroom the previous Sunday. (These devotionals are available for purchase locally at Family Church or the links above.)
Below you will find what week Family Devotional we are on so you and your family can follow along each and every week.
