Family Ministry: Important Announcement

Family Ministry: Important Announcement

We are excited to announce a new approach to the discipling of the Children of First UMC Winter park, called Family Ministry.  Family Ministry is a church-wide strategic plan to help families launch their children into a lifetime of Christian Discipleship.  This plan includes the spiritual, educational, physical, and emotional growth and engagement of children, youth, and their parents. We will provide this support through the following areas:

  • Provide support to children, youth and their families as they transition through both development and spiritual milestones of preschool, elementary, middle and high school students.
  • Develop strategies for each ministry to welcome and support new families to the Family Ministry by partnering with our weekday preschool, new membership, and new parents through activities and communication.
  • Connect families to the greater church body through intergenerational worship, youth, and young adult ministries.
  • Create opportunities for the enrichment of parents as the spiritual leaders of their homes through serving events, parenting classes and seminars, and connections at spiritual milestones.

To accomplish these tasks, we are launching a search for the Director of Family Ministry.  Please be praying that we find the right person to lead us in this new exciting direction.   Click here for more information about this position.

We thank you for your prayers and support.
