Thanksgiving Dinner Ideas

Hosting, making, and going to Thanksgiving dinner can be very stressful. 

When everyone sits down, take the time to go around the table and have each person say 1 person and 1 thing that they are thankful for.  With all the different age groups at the table, it allows kids to see how thankfulness is for everyone and that each stage of life has different things to be thankful for.

If Not us, Then Who? Academy class for Parents

There are currently 7 different generations living in the world.  Each carries its own stereotype and judges other generations' values and priorities.  However, every generation has one thing in common... each one needs Jesus. Join us each week, as we focus on how the church can best respond and relate to generational differences and to be certain there will not be a Lost Generation.

Can I have a cell phone or a tablet?  Parents hear this question a lot.  Be prepared to help your child when they take this next step.  When you give your child any type of technology - set up a contract with them.  Define the expectations & help them keep a balance with them
