Family Ministry when Families don’t attend WorshipOne of the present challenges of the church is that families are not attending church as much as they did in the past, and if they do, regular attendance is one in four Sundays. How do we offer ministry with families in this context? Join us for a conversation, learning from ideas and practices that have worked, some that haven’t. We will share our common wisdom for next steps as we discern how to be church in this time and look toward reaching out to the unchurched in our church neighborhood.
