God created the family to be the foundational element of society. Scripture clearly presents the relationships and roles God desires in our families, and our sincere desire at Lewisville is that each family will know and practice all that God has shared with us. God has delegated the responsibility for raising children to fathers and mothers (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Ephesians 6:4; 2 Timothy 1:3-5). While our church family can and should have a major influence for good, God will ultimately hold our parents accountable (Malachi 2:15).
Our family and youth ministry supports parents and engages families. Serving others, growing spiritually and connecting socially are our primary focus. We have deacons leading and members actively involved in specific ministries including the following:
• Opportunities for our parents and young families to grow spiritually and socially through service
• Teen ministry focusing on our middle and high school students, led by our full-time Youth Minister (also referred to as “LYM” – Lewisville Youth Ministry)
• Leadership development fostering practical leadership skills for Kingdom service in our young people using the Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes program
• Family Vacation Bible School annual event involving hundreds of our members and including our local community
