About FAMILies at The Orchard...

Our Mission Statement:  Jesus gives a clear explanation of what He desires from us, found in the Great Commission...."Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."
 Matthew 28:19-20, NIV
Our Purpose:  Our Family Ministry will supplement the family in reaching children (evangelism) and helping them become fully devoted followers of Christ (discipleship).

We will strive to accomplish this through Core Values:
  • We are a family-centered ministry
  • Lessons will be relevant to today's kids/students
  • We will teach the Bible creatively
  • We will intentionally shepherd students of all ages through small groups
  • We will keep our students spiritually, emotionally, and physically safe
  • Our Ministry will be FUN!
