We care about the challenges your family is facing and we're praying for you. Keep us posted on how your family is navigating this season. As you see God at work, consider sharing your story.
As disruptions to work, church, relationships and life continue, one thing is certain—staying connected to Jesus and others is a key to thriving throughout the adjustments. We believe God has creative purposes in mind as we all anticipate the upcoming months a bit differently than originally planned. Most importantly, know that we're available if you have questions, specific needs or would like to pray with someone on staff. You can also share prayer requests and pray for others on the prayer wall.
Use these resources as you find them helpful for your family.
Particularly in this season of social distancing, social media can offer a great alternative for staying connected. We've created the Parent Community Facebook Group as a safe environment for conversations, resources and interaction as you navigate today's challenging parenting dynamics.
The Children & Family team is creating weekly Bible lessons and activities for your family to watch together any time.
Available the first week of the summer months, these intergenerational materials are designed to help your family interact in Bible lessons, service projects and meaningful conversations. Pick up a kit at the reception desk Monday–Friday, 8am–4pm, or on Sunday mornings.
