MINISTRIES:

Children’s Ministries

Children are a vital part of Family In Faith. We strive to provide children and teen ministries that are fun, educational, and most importantly provide ways for our children to know and love Jesus as their Savior. Our Sunday morning programming for children is offered
during the School year.

Our Sunday School (preschool–5th grade) meets at 9:15am on Sunday
mornings. Each week, the children enjoy hands-on learning in a
combined-age classroom setting.

Nursery care is provided during the 10:30am worship service for babies
and preschoolers.

ABBA

The ABBA ministry here at Family in Faith serves the child-care needs of more than 30 families in our community, allowing single parents as well as traditional nuclear families the opportunity to better themselves, as well as offering a Christian upbringing for their children.  The children sing songs, play games, and learn in a loving atmosphere, with a staff of trained care-givers.  They have Jesus time everyday as well as special events throughout the year.  Learn more by visiting ABBA’s web page.

Music Team

Every week, a good ten people put their talents and time to great use in shaping our Sunday morning worship experience. But the goal isn’t to put on a show—not at all. Every week, musicians, vocalists, and other artists come together to create a place where God can receive praise from His people and where these same people can receive His truth, His love and His grace in return. That is why they gather; that is worship.

If you are a musician, a vocalist, an actor, or an artist of any stripe or skill, you are welcome to see if Worship is God’s place for you.

Missions

Family In Faith is committed to continually reaching out to others, both in our community and around the globe. We support a changing group of ministries by giving away 10% of all the offerings received. Adults are regularly given the opportunity to go on service teams. If you are interested in going on a missions trip, please let the office know.

Youth

Our mission is to help young people maintain and grow in their relationship with God. When kids reach a certain age, it sometimes seems as if they speak a different language and it can be difficult for adults to reach them emotionally. Adolescence can be a difficult time as kids try to find themselves and their place in the world. Our children face a lot of peer pressure and negative outside influences and need all the love and support which only family and a solid belief in God can give. This is when a strong faith in Jesus has an impact. Family In Faith wants to offer a safe hangout for young people to take a break and have real, open discussions and loads of fun! There are also annual mission trips every summer.

Food Pantry

Since 2005, Family In Faith has given away 100,000 pounds of food per year to more than 2,000 different families. We are committed to serving those in need in our community, and are in the process of planning for a permanent Food Distribution Building so we can expand this outreach.

We can always use volunteers for the Pantry: to distribute food, to help register guests, to pray, to serve coffee, to translate, to work behind the scenes. Contact the church office (630-653-5030) or email Don Summers if you would like to help in some way.

Prayer

A team of six individuals prays for ALL prayer requests received every week. We believe that there is great power in prayer, and we’re committed to continually praying for the needs of those who we are in touch with.

We have a prayer team available during the Lord’s Supper at the 10:30am worship, ready to pray for anyone who desires direct and immediate prayer.

Men

The men hold a breakfast the first Saturday every month, to encourage each other spiritually, share concerns, stresses, and burdens, and to pray with and for each other.

Women

Women have started getting together to seek to help each other come closer to Jesus and to dig deeper into God’s will for their lives.
