Your family, your story

Families Ministry

No matter what your story is, we believe that with God as the foundation, every family can write a story of hope and success. Meet other parents and get plugged in!

Connect me

Every family has a story. We want to know yours.

Our families ministry is a welcoming and diverse group of parents with children of all ages. We are committed to helping each other fulfill God’s destiny for our families so that our homes become “…healthy and growing and full of love” (Ephesians 4:16 NLT).

The families ministry is comprised of small neighborhood groups, children’s ministry classes, special needs support and a dynamic middle school and teen ministry.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you offer for my kids?

Every Sunday we offer children’s ministry classes from age 6 months through middle school. While you enjoy church service, your kids can learn about God in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.

What about for my teen or middle school student?

Our Y ministry is a place where teenagers can build relationships with each other and with mentors who help them answer the “why” questions of life. We call our youth ministry the “Y” ministry because we focus on teaching teenagers the reason why we do everything we do. We do not want to pass on only behavioral rules and neglect the greater reasoning behind all that God has taught us. The Y ministry holds weekly events for middle schoolers and for teens at at various locations throughout the Bay Area.

I have a child with special needs…

Our renowned Spiritual Resource Ministry (SRM) is available every Sunday at all of our service locations. Within SRM, different means normal. All children are welcomed regardless of their skills or abilities. Every Sunday, SRM gives parents of special needs children an opportunity to attend church services. Children can learn in an inclusive and sensory-friendly class environment with a teacher student ration of 1:1. Often, SRM volunteers have degrees and training in physical, speech and occupational therapy, special education and social work or they are parents of children with special needs.
