Grow AT Home

Parent Resources

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

As parents, the combination of discipleship at church AND in the home, is essential to us raising kids ready to launch into the adult world. And that’s our goal – to help you prepare your child to LAUNCH well!

The Home

PARENTS AS PRIMARY DISCIPLERS

Parents loving, communicating, and teaching their kids to follow Jesus as they follow Jesus.

The Church

REINFORCING SPIRITUAL TRUTH

Age-graded ministries loving, communicating, and teaching kids to follow Jesus in a way that reflects discipleship at home.


We want to assist parents in the process of disciple-making.So, we have designed Celebrations, Experiences and Tools to help parents disciple at each stage of the journey.

One-day or weekend events designed for parents to teach a value (service, purity, responsibility, etc.) in a way that is interactive and fun.

  • 3rd Grade and Above: Family Israel Trip — Spring Break 2021

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.
