Every child is asking two questions: Am I loved? Can I do whatever I want?

We answer those question every day with our words and actions. My hope is to help create a day where you can learn how to answer those questions the same way our Father answers us, "Yes you are loved. No, you may not do whatever you want."

We have 3 amazing communicators coming in to discuss parenting that has children ranging from baby to adult. Tim and Kelly Gray, City on a Hill, will do a combined teaching to help us think about how our children's activities impact their developing brains. Michael Collins, Mercy's Door, will be teaching on the roles parents play and how to share the parenting role equally. Corey Johnston, Heights Church, will be creating space for parents to consider what their environment was like growing up, and how that environment may or may not be being effecting the family right now.

The event is going to be an intensive one-day event. Hopefully, this will allow you to step out of your normal rhythms and create some space to think and be encouraged as parents.

A light breakfast will be provided and lunch will be provide by Chick-fil-A. Please notify us for any special dietary needs. Childcare will not be provided.


Is minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Absolutely! We hope that you are able to attend; however, we also know that parents may find themselves in a bind and will not be able to come.
