The purpose of the Family Ministry at CUMC is to nurture and support families in their faith journey by providing opportunities to learn and grow in faith and service together, building relationships with other families that will strengthen their commitment to the church, and nurturing spiritual growth as the family develops their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ. The Family Ministry strives to equip parents to live in accordance with Deuteronomy 6, which instructs us to teach our children to love the Lord God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, to live what we believe and then to love our neighbor as God has loved us.
We are called to teach our children to know God’s love for them and grow in faith through understanding Jesus Christ in a safe, loving and joyful environment. Please let us know if we can assist you in becoming familiar with the variety of ministry opportunities provided here at Chester UMC. We sincerely hope we will have the pleasure of being a part of your family’s spiritual journey.
