family ministry

Holmeswood's Family Ministry includes kids & youth ages 0-18 and their families. 

Holmeswood partners with parents & guardians as they take on the awe-some responsibility of guiding and raising God's children. And we have your back! Life is challenging, so let's do this together, encouraging children and students to learn, grow and ask lots of questions along the way.

ALL churchgoers are encouraged to join in the fun!

young adults

The Young Adults at Holmeswood Baptist gather together to help connect one’s personal story of Christ with their own community. We are open to all people ranging in age from college through 35 years old, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, neighborhood, or financial status.

We desire to live life as a community that struggles together through the questions and doubts of faith, practically serves in various social issues in the area at least once a month, and enjoys hanging out in a warm community.
