Family Ministry

The crux of Family Ministry is relationships. Relationships between parents and children, between spouses, and between all the members of our beloved crew called the church family. As you navigate life’s phases, we want to equip you to flourish in relationship with those around you and to disciple you to that you may disciple others.

Family Ministry at Signal Pres is an umbrella to shelter Preschool Ministry (birth-4/5’s), Children’s Ministry (Kindergarten-Grade 5), and Student Ministry (Grades 6-12), as well as Embrace Ministry, which serves individuals and families with exceptional needs of all ages. We follow intentional curriculum maps, celebrate important mile markers, connect children and students to one another and a wide circle of adult leaders in the church, and seek to support families with the skills, resources, and relational connections essential for faithful living.

 

Safety & Security

We are continually working to make sure that we earn and keep families’ trust by creating a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for all people – but particularly our children and students. Our regular leaders with access to children or their contact information have all undergone a background check and careful training. We make use of check-in tools—and appreciate your patience with them—to know who is onsite at all times and how to contact parents in case of emergency. If you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Andy or another staff member.

 

What to Expect

Before your visit, get a taste for what to expect on a Sunday or Wednesday for each age group pertaining to your family, and be sure to check out the upcoming events on each page!

What’s My Next Step?

Take a look below at some of the seasonal programs available to you through Family Ministry and please reach out directly to Andy to get involved or learn more. If you’re coming to one of our special events or weekday programs, we’d love to set you up with a host to help you navigate campus and get introduced to other families. To get set up with a host, contact Andy below. 

If your child or student has special needs or would benefit from additional support at Signal Pres, please contact Cara Rock or Celestial Allen, Co-Directors of Embrace Ministry.

 We look forward to welcoming you to the church family!

FAMILY CAMP

We carve out one weekend in September to spend together as a church family and it.is.EPIC! A few hundred of us take over Alpine Camp for a time of rest, worship, fellowship, and serious fun. Whether you’re coming by yourself, with a team of little ones, or as a seasoned couple, we can’t wait to have you with us.

MARRIAGE MINISTRY

We’re working to create a culture where every marriage matters and we circle around to support each other. Whether that looks like care and counsel or coaching and celebrating, we want to see hearts turned toward each other in grace and truth.

There are so many things I could thank you for (the Lord works in you!) . . . mostly loving families so well and fighting for the best biblical education our kids can have from birth on. We praise the Lord for you!

 

– Alex W.

As we have been settling in to all things new, we thank you so much for the warm welcome we have experienced from all of you. Kate feels a responsibility to tell anyone who missed family camp that you are really missing out and definitely come next year! It was the best!

 

– Michael & Kate S.

We’ve been coming to Signal Pres for over a year now and feel like it’s the perfect fit for our family. Thank you for welcoming us and making us feel at home!
