Holy Communion is a Divine mystery and gift given to us by our Lord and Savior. The Bible teaches that Christ’s body and blood are truly and actually present in the bread and wine for the forgiveness of sin, the strengthening of faith, and the unity of this congregation and the whole Church. We participate in this Holy meal with the understanding we share the same beliefs and doctrine. All visitors to Family of Christ should speak first with the Pastor before coming to the altar for communion.
As our name implies, we most fervently welcome families with children to be a part of the worship service, and to listen to a children’s message from the Pastor. Jesus teaches His disciplines: “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14). We welcome families with children of any age to participate in our Sunday morning worship. We strongly recommend parents to bring their children to worship. We understand children can be noisy and seemingly not to pay attention, but studies indicate that children learn while in service and their faith develops.
“But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 19:14, ESV
“To proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Ahwatukee community.”
So, what does this mean? We want to introduce people to the work of Jesus Christ and teach the Christian faith to our members and visitors through worship and bible studies and to children and families through our Early Education Center.
We realize the Ahwatukee community is filled with residents who are far from their native homes. So we strive to be a family to those who live far away from their families or who have no family.
