As a parent or caregiver, one of the most significant elements of your story is being a guide to your children. A parent is the most important influence in a child’s life. That’s why we want to partner with you to help you navigate the ups and downs of raising kids and guiding them toward living their own significant stories through apprenticeship to Jesus.
Below you will find links to many of the resources we have collected, and we encourage you to stop by our Family Resource area set up across from the student auditorium.
IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN!
Time for backpacks, #2 pencils, and notebooks.
The transition from summertime to back-to-school can happen so quickly that we’re already in our new routine before we even realize it. Whether you have kids in public school, private school, or homeschool, back-to-school means a new rhythm for your entire family. In all the chaos and adjustment, it can be difficult to create intentional moments for you and your family to connect in meaningful ways.
Here are some great resources that you can use to set your family up for success this school year! There are also print outs of all of these at the Family Resource area for your convienence.
Creating a healthy rhythm for your family takes discipline, planning, and often creativity. And just when you think you’ve got your family’s schedule all mapped out…life happens. Don’t worry – nobody has it all figured out!
