Partnering with parents to make disciples

Regardless of the situation we find ourselves in, it remains one of a parent’s primary responsibilities before God to disciple their children in the likeness of Christ.

What an incredible opportunity parents now have to do this with perhaps more personal interactions with their kids than ever! Parents – let’s not look at our children as obstacles to working from home, but rather look at this time as a God-given opportunity to intentionally disciple them towards Jesus.

On Sundays, we have curriculum available for all children from 3 years through grade 9. This curriculum will also include conversation starters and tips for parents to engage with their kids on the different topics throughout the week. We are excited to hear stories of God using these moments between parents and their children. 

Parents of children up to grade 5 will be acting as their child’s “Sunday School” teacher. We would encourage you to take 20 minutes to watch the video and read the parent guide, so that you can engage deeply with your children in this.

Grade 6 – 12 will have their own Sunday morning video meet ups.

Please see the relevant resources below relevant for this Sunday:
