He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young.
— Isaiah 40:11

Embracing Intentional Parenting

If God has blessed you with children, no one has to tell you it can be challenging, confusing and exhausting. It is also a high and holy calling.

We all need help in this God-given endeavor, but to whom will we turn for that help? You know your mom’s advice. You know the parenting trends your friends are following—but do you know what the Bible teaches about parenting your children? Do you have a plan?

For the 2019-2020 season (late September through April), the focus and theme of our Embrace ministry will be: Embracing Intentional Parenting.

To guide us on this journey, we welcome seasoned mom and author Betsy Corning, who will share from her biblical study in parenting and family life, Entrusted with a Child’s Heart.

Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.
— Psalm 127:1

Children’s Disciple-making Ministry

For (potty -trained) children ages 3 and 4, AWANA Cubbies meets weekly during the same time slot. Babies and children of other ages will be lovingly cared for and provided with age-appropriate stories, games and songs with a spiritual emphasis.
