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! This involves learning to be healthy spiritually, relationally and physically.


So, we have developed Grow AT Home Celebrations, the Parent Path and Experiences to assist you as you parent like a pro! Celebrations are those milestone events that define childhood. The Parent Path is a series of books, classes, seminars, conferences and other resources to equip you as a parent. And purposeful Experiences are relational events for you and your child.

Grow AT Home Experiences

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
  • 8th Grade: Outback Texas — Spring 2020

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.
