“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children…” (Deuteronomy 6:5-9).
As a church, we want to affirm parents in their role as the primary spiritual influencers of their children. Our goal is not to take on the responsibility of the parents or to provide a substitution for their role. Our goal is to be a support to parents, to help give them the tools that they need to fulfill their God-given responsibility.
One way that we do this is by providing weekly at-home resources based on what we are learning at church. These resources give parents real, tangible ideas for activities and talks that they can have with their children during the week. Our hope is that this will be a real blessing to parents and that families can talk about these things and grow together in their relationship with and understanding of God.
