We welcome you to our family based ministry webpage. It is such a thrill that you want to learn more about how God can bless your family through knowing Him better. You may be asking yourself, what is different about a family based ministry? I am glad you asked.
We, at St. Michael’s, believe that the best teachers for our children are the faith-driven parents. In this family led ministry, parents find that they have the greatest amount of time and the unique ability to really impact their child’s faith. Our goal, as a department, is to provide opportunities and materials to help enhance these learning moments that families share together. The Children’s Ministry is dedicated to honoring and encouraging families in their walk with Christ.
