Families are the center of faith formation.
Parents are the most important influence shaping the religious and spiritual lives of children and youth. Indian Hill Church Family Ministry strives to develop the family as a community of faith by equipping parents and grandparents to transmit the Christian faith at home.
YOUNG FAMILY SERVICE
Each month, we offer a Young Family Service followed by an outreach project or a fellowship event. The shortened service is perfect for families with young children to experience spirituality in a relaxed, interactive setting. The music and prayers are designed for young families. Each service includes a dramatic re-telling of the Bible story and an adult reflection.
For the summer season, we do not have any Young Family Services. We will resume them in the fall!
Messy Church meets monthly on Monday from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM. Messy church provides worship, fellowship and fun for preschool children and their family! There are several stations with unique crafts, activities, and learning opportunities. We’ll begin with snack, enjoy fun and educational activities, and conclude with worship in the Sanctuary and a simple pizza lunch. If you want to confirm your attendance to help us with our pizza count, contact our Children and Family Ministry Director, Jennifer.

Rally Day | Sunday, September 10th | 10:00 AM
Kick off our new program year each fall with Rally Day! We begin with a worship service, then we gather for lunch and entertainment on the lawn. Rally Day offers the chance to sign up for a number of activities and groups that begin in September as well as reconnect with the community that we haven’t seen during the summer.
Fall Festival | Sunday, October 15th | 10:00 AM
Join us for a family friendly worship service followed by the Fall Festival! Children are invited to wear church friendly costumes (nothing too scary or gruesome). Lunch and festivities will begin on the lawn (or in the Guild Hall if it rains) immediately following the worship service. We will serve lunch, have lots of games and crafts, offer prizes, and more! Invite your friends to the fun filled Fall Fellowship
