Marriage Skills: The Basics

Facilitated by Jeff & Robin Reinke and the Marriage & Family team. $35/couple.
Raising Teens in A Contrary Culture
Understanding the influences a teen must deal with today calls for a new way of parental engagement and a shift in parenting styles. This short study by Mark Gregston (founder of Heartlight Ministries) will enlighten you with creative and successful ways to deal with today’s issues and develop a deeper relationship with your teen. $10/family.

Bringing Heaven Home
Fathers, mothers, coaches, mentors – we all play a key role in the development of our children and youth today. Sadly, too many kids lack the support they need. What if the way to solve the world’s problems was to start by facing this one? What if we could be used to redeem the effect of absent role models? Come and learn practical ways and tools to Bring Heaven Home – for the benefit of your own kids, and every child in your world. $20 per person or couple.

Childcare for babies-pre Kindergarten is available when parents are taking a class or volunteering. ($30/ child for the six-week session).
Game Life is an innovative approach to teaching Bible principles using sports and games.

BreakPoint: Jr High

Small groups are one of the best ways for kids to plug in, meet leaders and other kids, and grow in their faith.
