PARENTING THROUGH THE PHASES
Begins January 14
Sunday Mornings at 11:30am in Building 2, Room 202
You have approximately 936 weeks from the time your child is born until he or she moves on to what’s next. It goes by fast, and kids change and grow quickly.
This 6 week study will help you discover what’s changing about your kid, the six things your kid needs most, and four conversations to have with your kid while they are in each phase.
GRACE BASED PARENTING
Begins January 17
Sunday Mornings at 9:45AM in Building 2
Grace Based Parenting is not another manual full of impossible standards; rather, it is a new map for learning to see ourselves and our children through God’s limitless tenderness—to raise our kids the way God raises us. Dr. Tim Kimmel offers a revolutionary concept that focuses on the model and guidance provided by God the Father—the ultimate child and family expert. This thoughtful, profound, and compassionate 8-week class presents a truly liberating way to nurture a healthy family. As we embrace the grace God offers, we begin to give it, creating a sound foundation for raising morally strong and spiritually motivated children.
