Family Ministries Programming Ideas

Because your church is a diverse family, it is important to try to include each group in family ministries. Plan activities and programs that entire households can enjoy together, and include some events the entire church family can enjoy together rather than divided according to age groups. It is also important to look for ways to involve people from all different types of families.

Below is a list of programming suggestions for your church. Use this list as a starting point for creating a menu of activities that will benefit the people in your church and community.
