resources

The Parent Library offers many resources that will help you more than you can imagine. Going through a tough phase in your child's life? Let us help!

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”

– Proverbs 22:6

 

Through support and encouragement, we equip parents of kids of all ages and stages to be God’s Plan A for their child’s spiritual development.  We walk parents through real-life topics with a Biblical perspective and provide pastoral care and practical tools for the parenting journey.

Philippians Family Style

June 1- 29th | 6:15-7:30 PM | Room 214

Every family (nuclear or church) covers multiple generations, perspectives, and experiences. This summer every generation of our church family is invited to take on a study of Paul's letter to the Philippians. For four weeks we will tackle scripture together in our own spaces (adults, students, children, and even our preschoolers!) to turn our minds to Jesus' joy in all circumstances. 

 

Each week will provide discussion and practical tools to promote Biblical conversations over dinner tables, poolside, or on the road for friends and family.

 

Students (6th-12th grade) will meet at The House (Underground); Childcare (and their own light version of the study) will be available for infants and children of adult participants. Pizza for families at 5:15.
