Discover or brush up on your own love language and learn how to love your child(ren) in a way they will understand. We will also explore how to use this knowledge in correcting and discipling more effectively.

Racism is a very real issue which every child will encounter from their perspective at some point in their life. The authors Jarvis J. Williams and Curtis A. Woods have designed two companion books (one each for parents and children) to equip parents to have helpful, honest conversations with a biblical perspective on race and racism and how the good news of Jesus Christ brings about reconciliation.  We will discuss these and other resources in order to help make this topic approachable, engaging and gospel-centered both in and outside of your home.

All parents are invited to join us during the Student Life small group time for this video and book study by Dr. Kara Powell and Dr. Chap Clark which has sparked a movement to empower parents and adults to develop robust and long-term faith in kids of all ages.  Using research, Bible-based strategies and practical ideas, we will discuss and encourage parents on how to encourage spiritual growth in their children and other young people God has put in their lives. Practical tools and resources will be shared on topics ranging from teaching our identity in Christ, sharing our spiritual journey and building intentional God-centered relationships into our lives.
