November 15 & 16, 2019



God’s plan has always been the family. In the days we live in, we need God’s direction on raising up Kingdom-minded kids more than ever! Come out for a weekend of practical, timely wisdom on raising kids and youth for God’s purposes.

Friday, November 15 from 7:00 - 9:30 p.m.

Saturday, November 16, from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

The purpose of Parenting Weekend is to provide tools to parents in all seasons to raise up Kingdom-minded kids. The topics during the weekend will hit various parenting areas and age groups. We believe the Church needs to be the forerunners in equipping parents and families to raise up kids who are in the world - all for the glory of God.

Childcare will be available during the weekend for kids ages 6 months to 11 years old.

Parenting Weekend is FREE and a free-will offering will be received.
