Parenting is one of the hardest things that we are tasked with. In this culture, there are so many voices wanting to speak to our children. We want to meet parents (and grandparents!) in the middle of that mess by equipping them with biblical truth as they navigate some pretty tough topics.
Attendees will start with a general session and then pick two of our breakout sessions to attend. Topics will include navigating a sexually confused society, raising financially literate kids, raising self-aware kids, grandparenting with intentionality, mental health, apologetics, and even a session to help answer questions for those parents considering private schooling options.
Our hope is that you leave feeling equipped and connected with resources and people to help you navigate your current season of parenthood (or grandparenthood). Registration is $10 per person, and free childcare is available.

Raising Kids in a Sexually Confused Culture

Mental Health and Building Resilience in Your Kids
Karen Coffey, M.Ed., LPCC-S
Children who learn to process the rollercoaster of life develop confidence and the skills to overcome life’s challenges. Most want their kids to be resilient, but how do we foster that in our children? Karen Coffey will talk about practical ways to teach children to process emotions, setbacks, and challenges, which will decrease their chances of suffering from anxiety or other stress-related disorders as they grow.

Raising Gospel-Sighted Kids
Emmanuel and Mary Agbovi
How do we teach our kids to see and love people the way Jesus does? God created people radically different from each other. How do we teach our kids to respond in grace and compassion to people created differently from them, whether it be race, disabilities, or culture? How do we teach our kids to answer the call to action when they see someone respond unjustly? Join Mary and Emmanuel as they share their heart for raising big-picture kids who live with gospel-sighted vision.
