The Ministry meets at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. This team focuses on families with young children, particularly families with infants through elementary-aged kids. Ministries with young families are designed to nurture the faith of the whole family, and include fellowship, outreach, and study opportunities. If you are interested in serving on this ministry, please indicate your interest under “Families with Young Children Ministry” on your Time and Talent Covenant.
