Parents

At New Life Family Ministries, we believe that parents are the primary nurturers of your child’s faith and the church plays a supportive role in this endeavor. Our Parenting Ministry is designed to give you the tools and support needed to disciple your child without adding more to your already busy schedule. Our programs and resources will help you put God on display in your home and allow you to create space for God-encounters in everyday life. Parenting can be tough, and we want to help you not just survive, but thrive in your God-given role.

From Functional to Flourishing

From Functional to Flourishing are trainings for any parent, caregiver, or teacher who would like to find community, support, and training.  Join us each month as we walk the trail of life together and delve into various topics pertinent to families.

When: Tuesdays 6:30-8:30 pm; August 13, September 10, October 8, November 5, December 10
Where: New Life North, Student Chapel

Foundations of Faith for Parents

Our prayer as a Parent Ministry at New Life Church is that our parents will be equipped to be the primary nurturers of their children’s faith in the home. Foundations of Faith for Parents is a discipleship course for parents to help them grow in their walk with Jesus. This class will provide training and resources for your spiritual formation and answer any questions you may have to help you grow deeper in your faith. Kids Ministry is provided for these classes from birth to 5th grade.

Please visit the registration link for the exact dates of the different classes being offered. These are stand-alone classes, meaning the discussion from one will not inhibit you from understanding another. Feel free to sign up for as many as you’d like.

Dates: June 9, July 28, August 11, October 13, November 17, and December 15
Time: 11:00 am -12:15 pm
Where: Room 246, New Life North

Desperation Conference

Desperation Conference–“Despo”–calls students to treasure, glorify, and follow Jesus above all else and is coming your way July 9-11. This year’s theme centers on God as Abba, our heavenly Father who longs to engage with us, protect and provide for us, and work in and through us as we join him in his redemptive work.

Registration is only $89 per person, and you will be able to participate in every session of the conference. Can’t join us for the whole conference? Worry not! Day Passes and Session Passes are also available.

Child Dedications

We believe child dedications are the declaration of you, as parents, to raise your child to know and understand God and a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Child dedications can occur at any time in a child’s life (not just as infants) because it is your vow to God, as opposed to the decision of your child. In our one-hour Child Dedication class, we walk through the Bible verses and passages that will train our parents to understand their God-given roles, teach them how to bless their children, and prepare them for the day of dedication itself.

If you are interested in the child dedication class and dedicating your child, register below!
