Partnering with Parents

We believe a parent is the primary spiritual influence in a child's life - what you model for them and teach them at home will have a far greater impact on their faith journey than the time we get to spend with them on a Sunday.

The pressure of parenting is real and we often add to that pressure by expecting every at-home conversation to be profoundly spiritual. Faith development at home does not always require in-depth Bible studies; Deuteronomy 6 and 11 show us that the in-between moments of travel, sharing meals, and bedtime and morning routines can all provide time for conversations about God.

For your child to thrive, you need to thrive and so we want to help put tools in your hands so that you can thrive as a parent and not just survive.

Your family MATTERS to God, and so, your family MATTERS to us!

We want our families to know that no matter where you have come from, we are traveling this road together ... we want to build faith-filled families.

There is no "quick fix" or "easy" button here, there are also no experts either... we are just a church that wants to partner with parents as they make faith a priority in their home.

We desire to encourage you and provide you with practical tools and helpful resources - these are here to support you, not put expectations on you!
