This Family Ministry Toolbox is chock full of all sorts of resources you’ll need to serve families to the best of your abilities!
What’s Inside? A better question might be “What’s not inside!?” but here’s a quick look at what’s in this toolbox.
1. FAMILY SURVEY:
One of the best ways to grow a flourishing family ministry is to connect with families in your church – to understand their needs and get to know them. Inside this toolbox, we’ve included a PDF of a Family Survey, a Google Forms template you can use, and an After the Survey list of ideas for you to compile the information and use it effectively!
2. FAMILY FACT SHEETS:
Having a Family Fact Sheet on file for each family in your church is a surefire way to get to know them! Having easy access to families’ important information (like birthdays, favorite foods & contact info!) helps you seem like a superhero as you get to know families. Inside, we’ve included a PDF copy of our Family File Sheet, an All About You sheet that kids can fill out themselves, and a Canva Template for you to edit/create your own!
3. ADOPT A FAMILY INITIATIVE:
Navigating a pandemic has brought to light that so many families are struggling with loneliness and isolation. One of the most powerful things YOU can do as a church is to create an Adopt a Family Initiative. This initiative pairs families with older couples, singles or families in the church to create a prayer partnership & support system. (You can download this resource on its own here, but there’s no need to buy it separately!)
4. FAMILY WORSHIP IDEAS
Beyond the administrative stuff, we wanted to include some tangible ways you can include families in worship! This toolbox includes some great resources to help you think creatively about Family Worship including a full, 1-hour family worship service plan, a guide to online church for families, a guide to drive-in church, and a parents’ guide to kidmin online!
5. FAMILY FUN SOCIAL MEDIA CHALLENGES
We know that summer (and especially summer in a worldwide pandemic!) can be a tough time to try to connect with families, so this folder includes eight simple and fun ideas you can post to your church’s social media page to get connected to families. Each of these challenges is included as a square and story style image, and is simple enough to be completed by anyone, anywhere, at any time! You can use any of these eight simple challenges to connect with families over the summer months! (You can download this resource by itself here, but no need to purchase it separately!)
Separately, all of these resources are a $52 value, now available for only $39 in this Family Ministry Toolbox download!
