marriage + parenting

We understand that marriage and parenting isn’t always easy. You want to get it right and we want to help. Using the Bible as a guide, you will gain the understanding needed to be the best spouse and parent you can be.

Get Connected

Marriage and parenting are two of the most rewarding endeavors a person can undertake. They are also two of the most challenging. They say “it takes a village” to raise a child and it’s true! So, let’s be a community and walk through it together.

Connecting Events

Throughout the year, we offer large-group events for fun, fellowship and encouragement. These times offer a place to meet other couples who are experiencing the same joys and struggles as you are in your family relationships.

Be sure to watch for events and conferences designed to strengthen marriages and families!

Child Dedication

Child dedication is a special time for parents to affirm their intention to raise their child in an environment where the child’s faith will flourish. We dedicate our babies and children to God as a testimony of our dependence on God and belief that our children ultimately belong to God.

Child Dedication services take place each Fall and Spring as part of the weekend worship services.
Completion of the Parenting Foundations class is required to participate.
