We believe that it is the parents who have the most influential voice in discipling and teaching their children about Jesus. Since that is no easy job, we want to come alongside you and help as an echo, speaking into your student’s life. Trust is a tricky thing… It takes a long time to earn, and it can all be lost in a moment. We want to earn your trust by communicating exceptionally well. Please take advantage of all of the ways we communicate and invite a partnership. To stay in the loop about what we’re teaching as well as upcoming events, sign up for our parent email.
