FAMILY DISCIPLESHIP

Cobblestone is committed to discipling families. In recognition of the Biblical command for parents to disciple their children, we offer childcare and Family Ministry for children and their parents based on the ages of the children and needs of the family. We are here to assist parents in their God-given role by providing resources, examples, and support for discipling their own children.

Family Ministry Sunday

    First service is a simplified community service.  We do not offer any special programming for families during first service. Children are welcome in the sanctuary with their parents.

    Second service offers the following specialized programs for families:


    Parents can check children in prior to service in the West Wing for either of these programs.


    Family Ministry - A discipleship initiative for children ages 4 through 12 and their parents. Family Ministry is designed to support and undergird the discipleship that naturally happens at home in families with younger children. Children may attend Family Ministry during second service on 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month, while parents serve on a rotating basis once a month. The first Sunday of each month is a dedicated Family Worship service where families worship together in the sanctuary for the duration of service.


    Childcare - We know that raising littles can be an all-consuming job.  To be of service to families with our youngest members, we offer childcare for children ages 0-3 during second service every Sunday. 

Family Ministry FAQs

  • God designed children to learn about Him and grow in Him in families comprised of all ages.
