And a great road will go through that once deserted land. It will be called the Highway of Holiness...Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return...Crowned with everlasting joy. Isaiah 35:8a, 10b
Family Ministries is based on Isaiah 35, where God led His people out of captivity and into freedom. God not only leads His people out of captivity, but He designs the exact path on which they should travel into freedom. In Isaiah 35 this path is called the Highway of Holiness, where the righteous travel, and no harm will come to them if they remain on this road.
Our prayer is for this vision to empower and encourage families as they embark on this journey of discipleship and a relationship with Jesus. It’s our goal to help create a clear pathway for kids and their families.
Family Ministries is designed to partner with the parents' influence and spiritual development of their kids and students. Our age-specific ministries are identified by four areas to complement and support kids and students as they grow in their faith. These four areas of the journey are:
- Introducing the Faith (6 wks-5yrs)
- Learning the Faith (k-5th grade)
- Embracing the Faith (6-8th grade)
- Living the Faith (9-12th grade)
We have also identified the following important "mile markers" along this journey, that give kids the opportunity to grow in their relationship with Jesus:
- Infant/Kids Baptism
- First Communion
- Transition to Kindergarten | Lakeville information | Shakopee information
We are honored to partner with families as we travel on this journey with you.
