Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have some special protocols in place to make our environment as safe and healthy as possible for our children and volunteers. Those procedures include wearing masks inside the building, encouraging thorough handwashing, and sanitizing spaces, toys, and surfaces between all services. We are following the local school districts for guidance on age levels and mask wearing.

PARENT RESOURCES

We desire to be a church that not only teaches the gospel to our kids and students, but also equips parents to do the same at home. We recommend the books below as resources that will help you shape your child's understanding of God and proactively address the tough questions about faith that will inevitably come. 

Parenting Beyond Your Capacity


In Parenting Beyond Your Capacity, Reggie Joiner and Carey Nieuwhof help parents discover a bigger story in which to involve their family, one in which multiple influential voices combine in order to tell kids the same thing: that a relationship with God really matters. Parenting Beyond Your Capacity can help parents establish a lifestyle in which they:


  • Invite others to invest in their children to help shape and determine the direction of their lives.
  • Create a culture of unconditional love to fuel the emotional and moral health of their children.
  • Tap into the power of quality moments together, building a sense of purpose through everyday experiences.

The Beginner's Gospel Story Bible

 

How do you explain the gospel to toddlers and preschoolers? In The Beginner’s Gospel Story Bible, author Jared Kennedy traces God’s perfect promises through fifty-two Old and New Testament stories, retold in simple and compelling ways with toddlers and preschoolers in mind. Each gospel-centered story highlights God’s tale of redemption through Jesus and the unexpected and surprising ways that God’s grace and mercy are revealed throughout the Bible.

 

Children will hear the good news of God’s love for them clearly expressed in ways that will speak to their young hearts. Brightly colored illustrations highlight the stories and add fun teaching elements of counting, opposites, patterns, and object recognition to keep even the youngest child’s attention. Every story also ends with a question that parents and caregivers can use to further reinforce the message.


Show Them Jesus


Millions of church kids are growing up and deciding to leave the church. They listened attentively in church, made friends, and seemed committed. But one day, they quit. What happened? The Bible says we love God because he first loved us. So if we are not primarily teaching our kids about God's love for us in Christ, we may miss our opportunity to capture their hearts. But what does it look like to teach our kids the gospel? With a simple framework and lots of real-life examples, Show Them Jesus helps parents and sunday school teachers to identify and communicate the heart of the gospel to children in ways they will understand and remember.
