Parenting is a gift of God’s grace – a tremendous privilege and a fruitful way to invest our lives. The rich blessing of parenting is also balanced by the sense of responsibility and obligation that we have to train our children in the admonition of the Lord. Therefore, we need all the help we can get. God has given us an abundance of biblical instruction and guidance on how to be fruitful, godly parents. Our desire is to parent toward the salvation of our children and prepare them for a life of full service to God. By God’s grace, the goal of the class is to encourage and equip parents to parent toward that goal.
In the class, we will learn:
- What the Bible says about parenting and the responsibility that parents have
- The importance of depending on God, His Word, and the church body in parenting
- How to respond when it doesn’t seem that our efforts are making a difference
- Practical, biblical instruction on how to train our children on a consistent basis (developing and maintaining family worship)
