VISION

Our goal is to see your family succeed in all capacities. We want families, churches, and communities to thrive! We believe non-Christians can live good lives and experience joy. However, we also believe that the fullness of joy God intended for us can only be experienced through love, faith, and obedience in Christ. No matter what your family might look like. No matter your spiritual beliefs. We envision our church working together with your family to help promote healthy relationships, children, and homes. 

  • principles

    Children’s and Family Ministries are driven by the following principles:

    • All people have infinite value (Genesis 1:26-27).

    • Marriage is the foundation of the family (Matthew 19:5).

    • Children are a gift from God (Psalm 127:3).

    • Parents should aspire to model for their children how to follow the teachings and spirit of Jesus at home and in the community, with love, humility and grace (Deuteronomy 6:6-7).


  • Our mission

    The mission of Children's and Family Ministries is to work with couples, parents, and children so they develop a growing relationship with Christ. The overflow of coming to know and experience Christ are relationships that thrive, children who flourish, and homes filled with joy. 

What CFM offers

Life can be messy. No one is perfect. We all struggle with our marriage, relationships, and parenting. We all need help! Everything we do here at CFM is geared towards helping families succeed. Success in relationships or marriage. Success in parenting. Success in family discipleship. Children’s and Family Ministries at CPC wants to help your family overcome all the challenges and complexities life may present.

  • Spark, ignite, and propel Sunday Experiences

    The children of our church are our most precious resource! We want our kids to develop an authentic, lasting faith that sticks with them throughout their entire life. We want our kids to be excited about coming to church and excited to learn about God. Children from Pre-K to 6th grade have a fun and safe place to connect and engage here on Sundays. Our children’s Sunday programs are designed to foster meaningful relationships that help kids come to see and know God while building and strengthening faith that lasts. For more information call or email the Director (contact info below) or upon visiting, ask an usher or Welcome Center volunteer and they will be happy to help.
