At Central, we deeply desire to raise the next generation to be high-impact disciples of Jesus. And we believe that in our rapidly changing culture, this requires that we rethink how we disciple our children within our families and in our church family. We want to equip families with children age 0-18yrs to not only better minister to our children, but to minister alongside our children in order to make fully devoted followers of Jesus.
Here are some of the ways that we try to meet these goals:
Life transition events: Baby Dedication, Preparing for Adolescence, Preparing for Baptism, Preparing for College
Fostering intergenerational relationships between all generations of our church.
Ministry opportunities to serve alongside your children: Local ministry opportunities among the poor and homeless, Foreign mission trips with your family
Family ministry programming and events: Premarital counseling, Marriage retreats, Family Retreats
Intergenerational relationships are very important to us here at Central. We believe all ages can learn valuable lessons from one another, and we know that these relationships are an important part of passing on our faith to younger generations.
The way we are trying to foster these connections at Central is by pairing people of different life stages--children with empty nesters, older members with young adults. It is intended for all ages and benefits all ages.
