Midtown’s ministry to kids and families includes much more than a Sunday morning experience. New families are invited into a biblically based comprehensive plan for their child’s spiritual development that will provide teaching, support, and encouragement as they disciple their children from birth to adulthood. We call this our Family Milestones Plan:
DIAPERS TO OPINIONS
For parents with kids 3-years to pre-kindergarten, we will discuss family discipleship including proactive and reactive conversations, living on mission with kids, and age-appropriate responsibilities. Families will write their Family Agreement and plan regular family worship.
For parents with kids starting kindergarten, we will discuss Gospel fluency for kids, kids and technology, and age-appropriate responsibilities. Families will rewrite their Family Agreement and plan regular family worship and anual peer-group fundays.
PREPARING FOR ADOLESCENCE
For parents with kids entering into the 5th grade, we will discuss changing relational dynamics, increasing age-appropriate responsibilities, puberty/sexuality, teenagers and technology. Families will rewrite their Family Agreement and plan a parent/kid outing to discuss puberty and sex.
RIGHT OF PASSAGE
For parents with kids in 8th / 9th grade, we will discuss independence and autonomy, dating and relationships, Christian identity, church responsibility, and masculinity and femininity. Families will rewrite their Family Agreement and plan regular family worship and a Right of Passage Experience.
