About Children's Ministry

The Children’s Ministries Department supports and promotes everything that local churches provide for the spiritual nurture of children, ages birth through eighth grade.

About Family Ministries

Family Ministries is not only a program of events but a plan for the whole church program with sensitivity to the variety of family configurations that make up a local congregation. “One well-ordered, well-disciplined family tells more in behalf of Christianity than all the sermons that can be preached.” (The Adventist Home, p 32).
