First Friends Resources & Ideas

We know it’s not easy to parent children today, but we also know that God has hard-wired kids to be in uenced by their parents. We hope that you are taking advantage of this in uence by being a disciple-maker of your son or daughter in his or her walk with God. Here’s our TOP FIVE list of how to start making a disciple of your child:

  1. Use dinner time to pray and talk about spiritual things.
  2. Read the Bible to or with your child each day and ask basic comprehension questions.
  3. Ask your child how you can pray for him or her and then do it!
  4. Talk to your child about what he or she learned in Bible study or at church.
  5. Fall in love with Jesus yourself, and share that experience with your son or daughter.

Grow@Home

Grow@Home is a church-wide commitment to encourage spiritual growth at home. Spiritual training at home and regular attendance at Life Bible Study and Milestones at Houston’s First lay the foundation for a deep and lasting faith. The goal of NextGen Ministry is to aid families in becoming the primary disciplemakers of their children. Visit our Grow@Home page for more information
