Family Ministry

Family MinistryOne of the most important things we will ever do is tend to our family. Our families are far more important than our occupation, service and personal ambition. As much as parents are tempted to think otherwise, no one has more influence on the life or a child than a parent. As husband, wife, father or mother, God is calling us to raise our children to become mature  and healthy adults committed to following Jesus Christ. At Hixson UMC, we are committed to supporting families in everything we do! When families work in tandem with the faith community to raise their children, they increase their parenting capacity exponentially.
