Children, Youth & Family Ministry Goals


Family of Christ seeks to be a grace filled family of God, living the gospel through faith, love and compassion. One of our core values is youth; we create an environment where the young and young at heart can learn and be supported on their faith journeys (Matthew 13:31-32).


As children and teens participate at church from birth through high school graduation, our hoped for outcomes—that align with our church values—for what they know, experience, and live out include:

  • Faith | Youth will learn faith foundations through integration of scripture stories, Christian Lutheran tradition, and experience with the communities they are part of.
  • Acceptance | Each youth knows they and all people are created in God’s image and that is good, and they begin to live into who they are created to be.
  • Meaningful Relationships | Each youth experiences being part of a family of God and a family of the world in which all people matter.
  • Impact | Youth will grow in their faith by having opportunities to share and integrate their faith through action understanding they are someone who can make a difference in this world.
  • Love | Each youth understands they and all people are loved and beloved children of God, and there is nothing they or anyone can do to lose the love of God. They believe “Jesus loves me” and “God loves you”.
  • Youth | Children and teens will experience an environment where they can honestly bring their true selves and be loved as the children of God they are.
