Our Families and Children's Ministries e-newsletter is sent once every two months. Each issue highlights carefully curated resources, events, and various ministries of the church that may be helpful to your local work in ministry. We also occasionally send "Special Editions" in response to urgent current events.


We encourage EVERYONE to subscribe, no matter your role or place in the church or outside of it. Our goal is to pack each issue with relevent information making the time you spend viewing well worth it.


It only takes a quick moment to subscribe through MailChimp. Your information will be used for no other purpose than this newsletter, and you may update or cancel your subscription at any time.
