Parenting Conference

Parenting Conference

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to last spring’s Marriage Seminar, we invite you to join us again for another seminar by Dr. Paul Tripp on Parenting.  Whether you are single, newlyweds, full or empty nesters, or a grandparent, this seminar is packed with clear, biblical instruction for us to equip, guide and preserve the soul’s of our youth in today’s godless culture.  The dates chosen to host this event are:
Friday, October 26, 7-10pm
Saturday, October 27, 9-11:30am
Similar to last year’s format, we plan to meet in the chapel and watch a four-part video series by Dr. Tripp.  Nursery will be provided, and a collection will be taken to cover content licensing and babysitting expenses.  We plan to have light refreshments, giving us the opportunity to fellowship with one another.  There will also be a short time of question and answer with one of our pastors.
We pray God will richly bless this seminar and that His name will be glorified through our viewing, and by his grace, applying what we learn on this important subject.
Please RSVP to:

4 Brand-New Lessons From Dr. Paul David Tripp
Parenting is hard work, but what could be more important in your life than pointing your children to God and warning them of the dangers of sin? In this brand-new resource from pastor and best-selling author Dr. Paul David Tripp, you’ll learn four life-changing lessons that can radically change the way you raise your kids.
Session 1 – Behind your relationship with Jesus, nothing is more important in your life than being a parent. Dr. Tripp will warn you of the most common distractions that take your focus away from your primary calling.
Session 2 – As a parent, if you aren’t resting in [or finding] your identity in Christ, you will naturally look for identity in your children. Dr. Tripp will reveal 5 signs that you are asking your kids to supply you with meaning and purpose.
Session 3 – Every child needs authority in their life, and God’s call is for a parent to represent His authority in a beautiful way. Dr. Tripp will show you how to express grace-based authority in the home.
Session 4 – For lasting change to take place in the life of a child, they must understand the desires of their heart. Dr. Tripp will teach you how to communicate this theology and prepare them for the war against sin.
