Welcome to the Family Ministry

Dolores Rader, Minister to Families

The Family Ministry at South Main celebrates the big and small of childhood from the birth of a child to their send-off from high school into a world of their own. The goal of our ministry is to provide programming, people, and resources in each child’s life, so that ultimately they hold dearly to an authentic and lasting faith in Christ.

Dolores Rader, Minister to Families, and the Family Ministry Team value excellence, creativity, intentionality, and safety in all that we do. And we strive to combine the influence of a multigenerational church—with a history of servant leadership, educationally rich discipleship, and glorious worship—with the influence of the home, where parents and caregivers have the greatest effect and understanding of their children.

Celebrating and navigating Mondays through Sundays from week one to week 936 toward authentic and lasting faith in Christ.

Journey to the Baby

The anticipation and excitement in our children's eyes will proclaim the joy of Christmas as they immerse themselves in the Christmas story. At 12:00 PM on December 10, families gather in the Sanctuary to hear the magnificent story of a little mouse and his special journey with Clip-Clop the donkey and prepare us for our journey.
