The Family Ministry Team’s (1st Families) mission is shepherding families into a lifelong journey of discipleship. As such, we are excited to kick off the Parent Ministry, (1st Parents) whose mission is supporting and equipping parents for the journey.
Our keynote speaker, Chris Sasser, is the Pastor of Family Ministries at Port City Church in Wilmington, NC and Associate with Ministry Architects, a kingdom building ministry advising group. Chris has a passion for helping people discover God’s love for them and for building leaders in the church.
As Chris will discuss with us, when we talk with young adults we can often hear their pain. Even though our children and youth have lived a relatively short life, a lot has happened to them. Through their childhood and teenage years experiences and relationships have shaped what they think and who they are. Because of their experiences, bags have been packed and we have all struggled to know how to help them navigate life in a healthier and more Christ-like way. What if, as a parent, we knew what the most common bags were? What if our children and youth could get to their young adult years and NOT have so much of the baggage that weighs us down so heavily? Join us on Saturday, September 30th at 6:30 pm , here in the church, in Room 200 as we launch “1st Parents” and start a new conversation on what we need to do to help our kids “drop those bags.”
Please register HERE by September 27th. A light dinner for adults will be provided at the kick off, but please feed your children at home, as there will only be snacks available for the kids. Looking forward to seeing you there!
