Do you parent little ones in your home? Are you dealing with tons of homework and extra-curricular activities for your teenagers? Have you recently ‘launched’ the last of your children and realized that parenting them hasn’t ended? Or are those whose diapers you used to change now married and changing the diapers of your grandchildren?
Parenting is many things – rewarding, discouraging, delightful, frightful, energizing and exhausting. But have you ever considered that the point of parenting is to do more than simply enjoy as much as you can and survive the rest? Have you considered, long and hard, perhaps the most important aspects of parenting is that it’s an incredibly high calling from God and a privilege to have the opportunity to guide young souls toward their Lord and Savior?
A number of ongoing opportunities are available through Cornerstone Church to help encourage and equip parents to shepherd their kids in a Godly way. Between 40 - 50 sets of parents are currently involved at some level in one or more of those activities. If you have yet to engage with any of these opportunities but would like to, please contact me, Pastor Randy Jones, at the church.
Beyond these ongoing opportunities, we also have special events to help encourage and equip parents. One of these events is coming up on Wednesday, February 21, and you do not want to miss this. Biblical Parenting for Real Life will feature a panel of four of your Cornerstone pastors sharing their own stories of raising children to love and serve the Lord. Joining me on this panel will be Debbi Andrews, Duane DenBoer and Ryan McElrath. We are very excited to share with you what we’ve learned and continue to learn, both through successes and through failures, in trying to parent our children for God’s glory.
To have an idea of how many will attend, we request that you rsvp to email@example.com, or by calling the church office at 562.296.6490. When doing so please let us know if you and your children already attend Legacy activities on Wednesday nights. If you are not normally involved in our Wednesday night programing and would like to bring your children to this event please note the age/grade of your children in your rsvp.
Finally, please feel free to invite any families from outside of Cornerstone! Simply pass along the same rsvp request information mentioned above.
We look forward to seeing you parents on February 21!
