Family Ministry is our commitment to see persons rooted in their faith from birth-young adults. This is an intentional partnership between Uniontown Kids and Youth Ministries and your home with the purpose of teaching kids, developing leaders, and equipping parents who all become disciple-making disciples. It looks like gospel-centered content communicated in an age-appropriate way for kids and students; it is the church resourcing, encouraging, and supporting parents at every stage of their parenting journey; it is us working together to become more like Christ and leading others to do the same
Family Road Map
Birth - 5th Grade
1 - Infants & Toddlers
Even our littlest ones can begin to learn about God's great love for them. This love is demonstrated as we play with and pray for children in our care, read stories about God and His people, and listen to songs about God.
2 - Preschool
A discipleship-focused curriculum is introduced as children transition to preschool. Through songs, Bible stories, and play children learn that God loves them, they are created for a purpose, and the Bible is all about Jesus - our Rescuer.
3 - Early & Late Elementary
We begin to focus on the Bible as God's big story of redemption through Jesus. The Bible gives clear instructions for life and marvelously reveals God's abundant grace and love toward His children. At this stage, we desire for kids to gain a better understanding of Jesus as the foundation of their faith and the importance of sharing that faith with others.
Middle School and High School
4 - Middle School
These students should use their parents as a resource for processing an increasingly complicated world of sin and darkness. They need to participate in youth group and small groups and lean in and trust that what they have learned about Jesus and the Bible is true and that they’re not alone in their faith as they continue to explore the depths of their sin and how far Jesus was willing to go to save them.
5 - High School
These students should begin understanding the importance of being rooted in Christian community by continuing their involvement in the youth ministry while seeking opportunities to be a part of the church body at large (serve in other ministries and discover spiritual gifting). They need to live into the reality that God created them on purpose and for a purpose. Lastly, we want them to pursue answers to their questions of faith and theology with a growing understanding and maturity that they may not know everything there is to know about life.
