Family Ministry Resources

Incarnation is honored to walk with you as you parent your precious children. We believe wholeheartedly that faith formation starts in the home. We have a strong belief that we as the church are here to surround you and support you as you meet the challenges and experience the joys of that task! Deuteronomy 6 teaches us:

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.
