What is Family Life Ministry

Christ Church defines family life ministry as any activity which supports, strengthens and trains the family unit. It includes activities which develop new family relationships in the Christ Church community and the greater community of faith as well as activities which increase our capacity to model Jesus in every relationship. Our vision is to excel in helping people “Know Christ, Grow in Christ and Proclaim Jesus Christ” to the next generation.

The Christ Church family includes people of every age and from varying family situations. We have senior adults, empty nesters, single adults, two-parent and single-parent families, blended families, and youth and children from newborn to college-age. Our goal is to minister to every individual with the highest quality of teaching in biblical truth, responsive pastoral care and focused discipleship for all ages.

What does Family Life Ministry look like? It is weekday Bible studies for women, evening home groups and the Alpha course. It is Tuesday morning prayer at a member’s home and Kairos gatherings for teenagers. It is informal dinners for college students and 20-somethings to hang out and discuss God’s word. It is dynamic Adult Sunday School classes, quarterly socials, quarterly service projects and spontaneous gatherings after church services. It is relaxed get-togethers for 30-somethings and young marrieds. It is our “Meals on Wheels” ministry to those just coming home from the hospital, those with new babies and those experiencing loss.

Family Life Ministry is church-wide social events as well as volunteering at the local food bank, participating in a Habitat for Humanity build, and packing shoeboxes together for Operation Christmas Child. We provide opportunities for adults and youth and children to get involved in community service projects for the entire family, family-oriented missions trips and discipleship trips.

Family Life includes our growing ministry of Pastoral Care. We provide premarital counseling, divorce care, grief care and financial counseling. We also help those who are seeking mentors and one-on-one discipleship to be paired up with a carefully selected member of the church who is perhaps further along in their journey with Jesus Christ and is eager to help others come along. Additionally, our Pastoral Care team provides confidential intercessory prayer support as well as pastoral counseling.

Our Sunday morning classes for children and adults also come under Family Life Ministry. We are privileged to be in ministry with Dr. Ken Boa who teaches one of our Sunday morning Adult classes and who also has a number of weekly classes that can be explored through his Reflections Ministries.

Life within the family is where we give witness to the working of God in our lives. As we love one another, we show the world what God is like. We are excited about our future as a missional church committed to reaching the community and beyond; loving our neighbor as ourselves; making a difference in lives beyond Sunday morning.

But the truth of Luther’s affirmation is eternal. It is eternal because God’s Word is eternal. The grass withers, the flower fades. But the word of our God stands forever. (Isaiah 40:8)
