We began the Military Family Ministry (MFM) in 2003 by providing small prayer quilts to service members who were serving away from home. We also prayed for them and their families during this time. This ministry was expanded in the summer of 2006.
Military Family Ministry Provides Support and Resources
The purpose of the Military Family Ministry at Rancho Bernardo Community Presbyterian Church is to provide resources and support spiritually, emotionally, and practically for all active and retired military and their families.
How We Serve Military Families
Along with our programs that help us identify service members in our community, we work with several local organizations that provide services to military families. This offers the community a locale to convene when necessary and a way to further assist military families through prayer, fellowship, meals, daycare, or other support.
Our services are not limited to this area. Through our ministry, we want to show support for all active duty and retired military and their families who are members or regular attenders at RBCPC and those who have have siblings or friends deployed or stationed away from home.
The Military Family Ministry allows us one more way to carry out our church’s mission to be a blessing to the community and the world. We believe Jesus transforms us so that we can help change the world! We hope to reflect that by serving, showing gratitude and assisting those who serve our country.
