Discipling your children is the best Kingdom contribution you can make…
Our Parent Cafes are special nights set aside for parents of kids and youth to come together for an update on what is happening in those ministries as well as to learn some practical tools as you disciple your children. Our next Cafe is on January 5 at 7:00 pm at our Cambridge site and will also be live-streamed.
Join us as we hear from Steve Borque from Family Rhythm about rethinking discipline from the perspective of discipleship. Register for the event here.
Celebrating your child’s dedication
Partnership in the Journey
“And Jesus took the children in His arms, placed His hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10:16
It’s a great moment when parents sense that their child is a gift from God. Our child dedication celebration provides an opportunity for parents to publicly express their decision to raise their child in a way that honours God. It is also a time for our church community to say, “we will partner with you in this journey”.
Dedication celebrations are held twice a year (spring/fall) during the morning services and include a pre-requisite class for parents. Our next Child Dedication services will be held on Sunday May 8, 2022. The Child Dedication Prep class will be held a couple of weeks prior. Please check back early 2022 for the date, more information and to sign up.
