Helping Families Become Centers of Faith Formation
$2.95

“The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs” (The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church, 2008, ¶120.

Family Ministries

The family is the primary center of faith formation, especially for children. Our affirmation for families asserts that families of all sizes and configurations are communities of commitment whose goal is human growth and faith development. Look for this and more:

  • A biblical/theological basis for family ministry
  • Guidance for understanding the families you seek to serve
  • Advocating for families
  • Leading and evaluating family ministry
  • Models for family ministry
  • Suggested calendar for family ministries

The twenty-six Guidelines cover church leadership areas including Church Council and Small Membership Church; the administrative areas of Finance and Trustees; and ministry areas focused on nurture, outreach, and witness including Worship, Evangelism, Stewardship, and Christian Education, age-level ministries, Communications, and more.
