Family Ministry at New World UMC

Focus and Purpose

Understanding, Experiencing and Sharing God’s Grace & Love.

The NW Family Ministries team is committed to creating an environment where children feel safe to explore their understanding of God and scripture. We aim to partner with parents in the spiritual and emotional development of their children. We believe in God’s grace and look to teach the future generations what it means to extend that grace to those around them.
