Family Ministry

Empowering parents and strengthening families

At Timberline our church desires to grow spiritually healthy families by educating, equipping and empowering parents in their role as their primary influencers of their kids faith.

We recognize that God's design for passing on faith is through the family our philosophy is based on 3 principles:

  1. Parents are the primary nurturers of faith
  2. The church plays a supportive role
  3. The Holy Spirit causes change and transformation

God has something big in mind for this generation and you get to lead the charge in your home.
You can do it...we can help!

We look forward to joining you in raising a generation that changes the world for God.
