Resources for Parents
We believe that parents are the primary models of faith and most important agents of faith formation for their children. But we know that parents don’t always feel adequate in answering our children’s questions, and need resources that they can rely on. The church is here to help you answer those questions and to point toward the most helpful resources.
As a congregation, we embrace the Faith 5– a devotional practice that helps families connect together and to God. Every night, families are encouraged to Share their highs and lows, Read scripture together, Talk about how the reading relates to their highs and lows, Pray together, and Bless each other.
Here are some more faith formation resources for families with children:
This website offers weekly devotions that can be used during the Faith 5, including readings that are broken down for younger children and including question prompts.
