Description: This Sunday School class is specifically intended for parents that have a young child or children from newborn through grade school years. The age of the parents is irrelevant. The key criterion is that they have a child or children in the defined age group.
Focus: Being a parent of young children is a challenging task in many different ways. This class would provide value to attendees by helping them successfully address these challenges by focusing on three key areas:
Schedule: We will start promptly at 9:30 each Sunday morning in Fellowship Hall Room 311. Below is an outline of a typical class schedule:
Care Group: Care groups have been formed to address the ministry needs and provide personal attention to each individual in the class. Each class attendee will be assigned to a Care Group, which will consist of about 16 individuals. Care Groups will meet on the first Sunday of each month, coinciding with a breakfast fellowship during the class. About once per quarter, the care group roster will be rotated to allow people to assimilate and establish relationship with as many people in the class as possible.
Curriculum: We will offer a balanced curriculum, rotating between a thorough study of God's word through the FaithWeaver program, and studies more focused on marriage, family, and parenting issues utilizing other materials. The following course schedule will be implemented each quarter: spring – parenting; summer – Old Testament; fall – marriage and family; and winter – New Testament. FaithWeaver is a bible study program that offers curriculum for all ages, from pre-school to adults. The program is being utilized by First Baptist Church’s Children and Preschool Ministry. Therefore, our Bible studies will parallel to what our children are studying on the same Sunday. This will allow us as parents to have knowledge of what our children are learning in their class, and discuss these lessons in more detail at home.
