Spiritual Leadership for Parents: August 2017

For three weeks in August, we will be doing a study designed for parents of children and youth who wish to be more supportive of their children's spiritual growth.  While the church is obviously a great place for children and youth to grow and develop spiritually, just like with their education, there are a few things parents can and should keep in mind to help ensure they are supportive of their children at home.  

This study will take place on Wednesday evenings after the fellowship meal at 6:45PM on August 9, 16, and 23.  Pastor Eric will be teaching, and the class will take place in the Lee Munsey classroom (it's on the main floor; just ask and we will show you!).  Each session will be one hour.

Resources for this study include Love-Powered Parenting by Tom & Chaundel Holladay and After You Drop Them Off: A Parent's Guide to Student Ministry by Jeramy Clark.  These resources are being provided to you at no cost and will be valuable for years to come!  We will obviously not have time to cover all of the material in three class sessions, but continuing to read these materials over the next few weeks afterwards will bring a new dimension and level of intentionality to our task of raising Christian children.

This study will be valuable for parents of children and youth of all ages, and will help us navigate difficult situations in raising Christian children.  The style of this class will be partially lecture, and partially group discussion and presentation.  The class will be held in English, as these materials are not available in Spanish at this time.

If you have questions pertaining to this study, please feel free to contact Pastor Eric directly at  

Holladay & Holladay's book is a six-week devotional with practical and God-centered advice for spiritual leadership for parents
Clark's book will help us discover how we can be supportive of our youth who are going through difficult adolescent years in their youth group
