FAMILY WORKSHOPS & MILESTONES:
Promoting discipleship at home
WHY: God designed the perfect plan for faith formation, an inseparable partnership between families and the church. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 "These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."
WHAT: The number of hours we spend at home far outweighs the number of hours we are at church. Therefore, our Family Workshops & Milestones are designed to help you intentionally nurture faith in Christ in your household. Singles can become intentional about their future. Couples can work on a strong marriage. Parents can help form the faith of their children. Grandparents can use their influence to point the next generation toward God.
WHEN: You can start today regardless of your child’s age or stage of development. Don’t worry if you miss a step or if you start the process with an older child or as an adult. You can always go back and emphasize earlier steps. Anything we want to improve requires practice!
HOW: The Family Workshops & Milestones are designed as age appropriate steps, tools in your toolbox, to build lifelong disciples of Christ. Each workshop & milestone is multifaceted, choose what works for your family.
My child, listen and be wise. Keep your heart on the right path. Proverbs 23:19
Singles can become intentional about their future. Couples can work on a strong marriage. Parents can help form the faith of their children. Grandparents can use their influence to point the next generation toward God.
Milestones are special moments celebrated corporately with your child, your family, and the church. Like a rite of passage, this is a time to celebrate and anticipate God’s plan for them in the next season.
