Families with Young Children

The mission for Families with Young Children Ministry is to nurture the faith of the whole family through fellowship, outreach, and study opportunities. Our ministry focuses on families with young children, particularly families with infants through elementary aged kids.

While we are able to grow spiritually through worship and Christian Education classes at Second Presbyterian, this ministry gives families a chance to get to know other families in the same stage of life and walk in faith together, as well as get to know one another on a social level. They say “it takes a village” to raise a child, so let’s work on building that village here together.

Connections Adult Sunday School Class

Connections is designed for adults ages 20 to 40ish to discuss life, family, current events, and everything in the middle. We discuss, learn, and grow together as we seek to live more faithfully… none of us are “experts” but we all have stories to share as we discuss our lives in the larger narrative of God’s story. Topics will vary throughout the year. Held Sundays at 9:50 a.m. Join us!

As a general rule, if the kids do not have Sunday School or there is an All-Church event going on that Sunday, we will not meet.

Family Fellowship

We hold numerous fellowship opportunities throughout the year for families to meet and mingle. From hikes & picnics, pizza parties, pool parties, game nights, family meetups and other fun seasonal events, you’re always sure to have something on the calendar to look forward to.

Girls/Guys Nights

Part of being a good parent is self-care, so we plan opportunities for Moms and Dads to get out on their own once in a while. Girls nights, guys nights, and date nights!

Outreach

Teaching our children to care for the needs of people in the community and world is an important part of our faith, and we plan mission activities to engage families in opportunities to serve others.

Family Retreat

Held annually in April at Ferncliff Camp & Conference Center, this is a perfect way for our families to bond, grow in fellowship and faith. Over the weekend, families are invited to follow the schedule as it works for them, and should feel free to go take a nap or a hike when needed! This is a no-cooking, no-cleaning, no-stress family weekend!
