The First Initiative for Children and Families
THE GOAL OF THE FIRST INITIATIVE IS TO MOBILIZE EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD OF THIS CHURCH FOR THE MISSION OF REACHING EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD OF THIS
COMMUNITY. MOBILIZATION INCLUDES THREE AREAS OF EMPHASIS:
SERVING, SHARING AND GIVING.
This is an exciting season for our church family. By God’s grace and for His glory, we are renewing our commitment to His mission in this community and to the nations. We are calling this The First Initiative and it’s nothing new, but a command Jesus gives to His followers as found in Matthew 28:16-20.
We want to see people live out this mission where they live, work, learn and play so that every man, woman, and child will have repeated opportunities to hear and respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This will be accomplished when God fills His people with courage to demonstrate and proclaim the Gospel as they serve, share, and give.
God has designed the family to be a witness for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This page is a resource to help families see the opportunities God places before them to demonstrate and proclaim the Gospel because God has uniquely gifted and strategically placed your family for this purpose. You can click on the links below to access the Family Devotion Guide, information on the children's offering, and how to have your child submit their drawing of what the new children's building should look like.
We want to reach the entire population of Merritt Island. As a part of this mission you can reach the people in your neighborhood, reach the other parents where you work, reach the families where your kids attend school, and reach the families where you kids play.
Please join us in this mission as we seek to follow God in His great work of reaching the world with the Gospel.
Here's information on the Children's Offering which will go toward the cost of a new Indoor Playground!
