Parent Resources

Welcome Parents!

We strongly believe that it is most important to partner with YOU as the parent. We as a Church only have about 40 hours of potential influence with your children each year, but the average parent or guardian has 3,000 hours of potential influence. We know that two combined influences make a greater impact than two individual influences. So join us as we combine the Light of the Church + the Love of the Home to = a Greater Impact on our children’s faith.

Everyone knows “it takes a village” when it comes to raising kids, and our newest group “The Village” is here to help you do just that. Each month The Village will feature a program that will highlight a particular challenge as it relates to parenting, mentoring, leading, and/or teaching children, and help you find ways to respond to those challenges in a practical and loving way.  

The Village is intended for all types of caregivers as we all play a role in raising the children in our community! The goal is for everyone to have the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and resources, while also making connections with other parents, grandparents, youth leaders, and teachers who are likely experiencing many of the same challenges when it comes to raising our children. We want to create a space where everyone can learn, share, laugh, cry, support and connect…after all, isn’t that what a village is for?

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
