FAMILY MINISTRIES


Family Ministry at Christ Lincoln exists to glorify God by raising up authentic Christ centered families who pass on vibrant faith in Jesus Christ to the next generation (Psalm 78:4-7). This is a strategic partnership between the church and home with the purpose of connecting parents and children with the truth of God’s Word, equipping parents to engage actively in the discipleship and spiritual formation of their children, and empowering people at every stage of life to make a positive difference in the world for Christ.

FRIENDSHIP FAMILIES

We have amazing English-speaking families from around the world right here in Lincoln NE.  Students & their families come here for graduate studies at UNL.  70% of these open & curious students NEVER see the inside of an American home nor get the chance to develop a relationship with an American family.  Your whole family can reach out as a Friendship Family to a small family, usually a couple with one child. No need to clean the house or get formal - they would love to simply connect monthly and do what you do, learn about your family life.  Mark Meyer at University Lutheran Chapel will tell us all about how this works.  We’ll make it easy for you.  You can share your culture, your faith and your family & learn a lot about another culture in the process. 


Central Campus Info Meeting:  Sunday Sept 8, 9:30 – 10:20, MS1

South Campus Info Meeting:  Sunday Sept 8 after worship (11:20) 


MEALS ON WHEELS

Pick a weekend lunchtime that fits in your schedule, and your family of ALL ages can deliver meals to shut-ins together!  We have adopted Saturday and Sunday lunch routes - no every-week commitment, just do it when it works for you!  Jena will lead an informational meeting Saturday, September 7th @ 10:30 a.m. at Tabitha, then all families will get to go out on a route to try it on for size. 

ADOPT AN ELDER

Did you know 60% of those currently in retirement facilities have 0 visitors in a whole year?  We will match your family up with a senior who would love to have an adopted ‘family’ to see once a month at least.  We’ll gift you with some games & activities to try, under the leadership of gerontology expert Renea Gernant.  If you want to find out when she’ll be leading the short workshop, sign up on form below.  No obligation, just come find out more.  We’ll find a suitable time for all. 

FRONT DOOR FAMILIES

Ready to greet?  We’re ready for your happy faces!  Sign up below for the campus you wish to volunteer at!
