What is Family Ministry?
The Parkland Family Ministry seeks to engage and equip parents in the spiritual discipleship of their own children through Bible study, inter-generational events, and a focus on the families of Parkland Baptist Church. Parents have a tremendous responsibility to disciple their children, and the Family Ministry of Parkland Baptist Church seeks to partner with them as they pursue this goal.
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)
Have you ever wondered how to handle the different stages in the life of your child? Curious about what scripture teaches that can help you in your task to raise your children in the “fear of the Lord”? Feel like you are guessing when it comes to teaching spiritual matters to your children? Then parent seminars are for you. In our effort to equip parents we will begin offering Parent Seminars that speak to specific stages in the life of every child and learn practical ways to disciple our own children on a daily basis.
Upcoming Seminar: Baby Dedication
Each year Parkland participates in a tradition to dedicate newborn children to the Lord by committing to raise their child to love God by loving God personally, attending church regularly, and serving the Lord together as a family. Along with the parents dedication, the church dedicates herself to come alongside parents to encourage, support, and strengthen the family and the parents as primary disciplemakers of their children. If you have a newborn child that you would like to dedicate, mandatory classes will be offered May 24 and June 11 at 6pm.
UPCOMING EVENTS: Summer 2017
June 25-29: Galactic Starveyors VBS
At Galactic Starveyors, kids will search the skies and God’s Word through crafts, games, music, and missions to uncover God’s truth etched in His handiwork. They will discover that the God who created everything there is wants a relationship with them! From the very beginning, to the furthest reaches of space (and beyond), nothing is outside God’s control or beyond His grasp. God loves us and will never leave us. Vacation Bible School will be from 6-9 pm each night. Parents can preregister their children now!
