We have set out to extend greater care to our families in the church — those with kids and those without. Our premarital class relaunched in February with 19 couples. And our Sunday kids ministry, The Village, welcomed 46 new families, hosts an average of 85 kids per Sunday, and coordinates about 100 active volunteers. The kids have been pacing alongside the adults in the Year of Biblical Literacy and have been learning about God's character, spending time with Him, and building loving relationships with peers and volunteers alike.
One of the key initiatives this year for the ministry was to launch a High School ministry, and we are happy to report that our first HS ministry gathering will be on September 18th! Throughout the rest of this year, we aim to train new volunteers and also to provide more opportunities for families within our church to connect with one another.
