Family Ministries is about people.
The over-arching objective of Family Ministries is to strengthen the family as a discipling center. The family was established by divine creation as the fundamental human institution. It is the primary setting in which values are learned and the capacity for close relationships with God and with other human beings is developed.
Family Ministries is a ministry of grace which acknowledges as normative the biblical teachings relating to the family and holds high God's ideals for family living. At the same time, it brings an understanding of the brokenness experienced by individuals and families in a fallen world. Thus, Family Ministries seeks to enable families to stretch toward divine ideals, while at the same time ever extending the good news of God's saving grace and the promise of growth possible through the indwelling Spirit.
Family Ministries focuses on people in relationship. It is a ministry that provides tools for couples, parents and children, single adults, and all members of the wider family circle as they pass through life's predictable stages and confront unexpected changes in their lives.
Health Ministries mission is to encourage and enable our members not only to experience a healthful abundant life but also to share the divine principles for whole person health with individuals in their communities and a world in need.
It is God’s desire that each of us may have an abundant life (John 10:10), and that means abundance of physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing. These areas of our lives are all interconnected and cannot be neglected if we want to experience whole person health. Our God has lovingly given us divine principles to follow in order to achieve optimal health, and we are called to receive the many benefits of living by these principles. We believe our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and we must care for it intelligently so we can fully experience God’s presence and discern His will in our lives.
By adopting the most healthful lifestyle with adequate exercise, rest, and a healthy diet, by abstaining from things that harm our mind and body, by nurturing healthy interpersonal relationships, by maintaining a positive outlook and hopeful attitude, and by seeking to know God deeply and trusting in His leading of our lives, we can begin to experience an abundant life today while also making a positive impact in the lives of those around us.

Adventist Youth Ministry
The salvation of youth through Jesus Christ. We understand youth ministry to be that work of the church that is conducted for, with, and by young people.
The Advent message to all the world in my generation.
The love of Christ constrains me.
Loving the Lord Jesus, I promise to take an active part in the youth ministry of the church, doing what I can to help others and to finish the work of the Gospel in all the world.
Children's Church is held every sabbath starting at 11:30am.
Our message to these kids is this: You matter to God. He loves you so deeply that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die for your sin so that you can live forever with Him. Poughkeepsie SDA is your church; it is your little world where you can learn that every action, every choice you make, and every word you speak, makes a difference in this life. Then, you can go out into this big world, and unleash all your goodness and GODliness, and through Christ…you can change it.
Teachers and activity leaders present spiritual food to the hungry hearts who are eager to learn more about God, His love for them, and His purpose and plan for their lives.
