... a churchwide commitment to encourage spiritual growth at home.

Here’s our TOP Five list of how to start making disciples of your child:

  1. Use dinner time to pray and to talk about spiritual things.
  2. Encourage them to read their Bible (or read to them) each day and plan a weekly time to discuss what your family is learning.
  3. Ask how you can pray for them and then do!
  4. Encourage them to talk about their faith as part of their everyday experiences.
  5. Fall in love with Jesus yourself and share that experience with your son or daughter.

Imago Dei Resources

Imago Dei – or “Image of God” refers to the creation of each human being in the likeness or “image” of God (Gen. 1:27). An understanding of Imago Dei allows us to love others and see them as God sees them. Loving our neighbor regardless of their race, nationality, language, income, political views, or any other thing that divides us is essential to living out the Christian walk in our current culture.

He [Jesus] answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
Luke 10:27

We believe an accurate Biblical Worldview involves teaching our kids to love others well regardless of the differences between us.

Below you will find resources for teaching your kids to love well.

More resources coming soon!
