Welcome - we are so glad you are here

We believe in families of all shapes, sizes and stages and we know that families need help to navigate the challenges of life. We are committed to helping every family experience what can happen when the light of the church collides with the heart of the family.

How to use the parent toolbox

The Parent Toolbox is a resource to help you maneuver tough conversations with your child. We give you conversation starters for topics like bullying, technology, and crisis. We help you know what to say and what not to say. Each conversation guide features a concise one-page view of key things you will want to know about tough subjects. You can read these online or download a convenient printable pdf. Conversation guides are designed specifically for your child's life phase: preschool, elementary, middle school or high school.
