What is FamilyD?
Our new and improved family dedication is for families wishing to commit to raising their child(ren) in a Christ-centered home. We want to inspire parents to invest in the things that will matter most to their child’s faith and surround themselves and their children with people who will support their faith journey. Parents participating in our family dedication (FamilyD) will attend a class and invite family and friends to join them for the FamilyD celebration event. Our FamilyD will focus on two main areas:
- Imagine the End. The most important decision your child will ever make is to put their faith and trust in their heavenly Father. The best person to influence your child’s faith is you. As parents, you will play a significant role in the faith journey of your child through the way you love God, love your family and love others.
- Widen the Circle. Your child needs people in their lives who embody the characteristics you’d like your child to one day portray and people who will support your child’s faith journey. This circle of influence includes family, friends and us. We are honored to partner with you from the very beginning of your journey as parents. We want to be a consistent source of encouragement, strength, and resources as you raise your child to have a personal relationship with Jesus.
