“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and all your strength. These commandments that I give you  today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children.”  Deuteronomy 6: 4-7

Dt.6 Family Ministry is a ministry at Lake Travis United Methodist Church that helps every family take one step closer to Jesus by:

  • Equipping parents to fill their children with Christ’s love and lessons,
  • Creating an environment where kids are excited to be at church and want to learn about God, and
  • Bringing family members together… in a culture where family members are often in separate activities.
