Family ministry at Western Oaks exists to bring the church and family together in order to make disciples of kids and youth! So our goal is discipleship (helping kids and youth begin to own their faith, and then join God on mission).
Before we explain any more about what our ministry is all about, we want to make sure one thing is super clear. (We even drew a little picture to help you remember it!) We believe that, in the life of any kid or youth, and especially when their discipleship is concerned, what happens at home is more important than what happens at church!
We believe that parents and the church need each other. We need to team up with parents in our efforts to disciple their children, and parents need to team up with the local church because their kids need to see faith in Jesus and missional living modeled from a whole community of believers!
