Gardens Presbyterian Church Family Ministries exists to provide a spiritual home for families in the Northern Palm Beaches by surrounding parents and children with love and support, growing authentic friendships within our community, modeling for our children the love and ways of Jesus, and equipping parents to spiritually nurture their children at home. Gardens Family Ministry is a cooperative partnership between the Church and family.
We strive to provide an extremely fun, safe classroom environment for all children. Families worship together until the children’s dismissal to Sunday School, following the Children’s Sermon during the service. Children will be met in the back of the sanctuary by Ms. April, the Christian Education Director. They will be escorted to their respective areas to enjoy 40 minutes of fun and exciting God honoring programming. Children may be picked up in their classroom by their parents at the end of the service.
Family Playgroup is an opportunity for the families of Gardens Presbyterian Church to get together and simply play! We meet on the patio of our church and both the playground and nursery playroom are opened for our children. Refreshments and snacks are provided. Playgroup is a great opportunity for our children to socialize and develop friendships with each other and for parents to develop authentic community and support.
Parents’ Cooperative Conversations
The Parents’ Cooperative series are opportunities for instruction, conversation, and discussion regarding important aspects and topics of parenting our children. Each conversation will begin with a presentation from an area practitioner including children and family therapists, pastors, teachers, instructors, coaches and any other service providers who are engaged in helping to develop healthy children and families in the Palm Beaches. Following each presentation there will be an opportunity for discussion with the presenting practitioner and time for conversation amongst parents to encourage, learn from, and equip each other in our call to parent our children. We believe we become better parents when we learn from each other and when we’re surrounded by a supporting community dedicated to care, friendship, and parenting!
