What is Faithful Families?
Here at FPC we believe intergenerational ministry to be one of the ways we empower people for lifelong discipleship. The Bible is filled with examples of faithful communities of all ages who journeyed together through the ups, downs, twists and turns of life. These communities all shared some common practices.
- They met together regularly.
- They broke bread together.
- They opened up the scriptures and learned together.
That’s what Faithful Families is about. All are welcome, so invite a friend to join us.
