At Chicago Fil-Am Church we are partnering with parents and their families to help kids develop a faith that sticks.
Firefly, Chicago Fil-Am’s ministry for infants through age 8, is held during all Sabbath services and extends into each child’s week through a partnership with parents, the spiritual leaders of each child’s home. Firefly partners with parents to help kids develop a faith in Jesus Christ that lasts a lifetime.
Firefly’s commitment to families
In Firefly, we commit ourselves to families in two ways:
First, we commit to guiding and equipping parents with tools and resources to help them be the primary spiritual influencers in their homes. Second, we commit to teaching God’s truths to kids each weekend, through relevant Bible teaching, music, group discussion, and age-appropriate activities.
A safe environment
Firefly is a safe and secure environment for each child. All volunteers and leaders are carefully screened and supervised, and a stringent security process for all kids provides parents the assurance that their child is being well-cared for during the weekend service.
For kids needing assistance because of a developmental or physical challenge, we work with parents to understand each child’s needs and provide a one-to-one volunteer for their child. Our goal is to help every child fully participate in Firefly.
A promising future
As kids learn biblical truths and experience God’s love both at home and at church, the message of His love for them is reinforced, giving each child an opportunity to move into the future with a solid faith foundation. Thank you for the privilege of partnering with you to help your child develop a faith that sticks!
