“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. (See also Ephesians 6:4)
The Bible teaches that God entrusts the spiritual training of children to their parents. The local church plays an essential supporting role in this vital task. We provide parents with training, encouragement, and resources to equip them to “shepherd” children in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). We partner together to teach the children the panorama of biblical content and doctrine. We include families in fellowship opportunities that include all age groups in the church “family.” We also encourage and enable families to experience to corporate worship together.
