Parent Support

YOU are the most important spiritual leader your child will ever have!  We see our role in the church as that of SUPPLEMENTING what you provide to your child spiritually, never replacing that.  We love to come alongside parents and support them in whatever way we can.  Here are some of the ways we love to help:

Parent Crisis counseling

  • When you hit a tough moment in parenting, and need some quick advice, our Children’s Ministry Director stands ready to assist you. When you run into a family crisis, and need some help for explaining it to your child, feel free to call.

Workshops and Seminars

  • Throughout the year, we provide workshops to train our teachers in the spiritual development of children.  Parents are welcome to join us for these workshops. 

Parenting Books and Resources

  • Throughout the year, we’ll be showing and sharing a variety of resources to give you ideas and tools for not only parenting, but also for leading your child in spiritual experiences. If you would like to borrow a book from our library, or need some recommendations, feel free to ask.

Answers to hard Bible questions:

  • If your child ever asks those really hard questions about Christianity, about God, or about the Bible, there’s someone you can ask.  Our Children’s Ministry Director is happy to help you formulate answers that are appropriate for your child’s age level.

Parent Tips in weekly or monthly handouts

  • Often in the handouts we send home, we include a family or parent-child activity that can open up spiritual conversations between you and your child.  

Parent-Child Events

Periodically throughout the year, we’ll offer special events for parents and children to enjoy together.   This is to give you the opportunity to have fun and yet invest in your child’s spiritual growth at the same time

Input Welcome

  • If there is ever an issue that you would love to have us teach about in Sunday School or any one of our other children’s programs, feel free to ask.  We can’t always deliver, but we would welcome your thoughts about what topics, spiritual growth ideas, or behaviors that you would love to see your child develop.
