Young families bring vibrant life to our congregations. As churches, we want to bless both these parents and children.
This 23-page resource will help you understand how to meet some of the needs of young families. One assumption we made in assembling these articles is that children's ministry should not be a substitute for a parent's spiritual influence; rather, a ministry empowers parents and then comes alongside to play a supporting role in their children's formation. These materials will help your church become stronger partners with the parents in its congregation.
NOTE: You have permission to make up to 1,000 copies of this resource to be distributed in a church or educational setting.
