God’s Wisdom for an Impossible Task
Join Pastor Kurt Gebhards and his wife Julie for a special parents night out!
Enjoy a wonderful meal, learn about parenting from God’s word, and have good fellowship with other parents.
The cost for couples is a total of $25 for each event you’d like to attend. For single parents the cost is $15.
If you’re coming as a couple, be sure to register both spouses as “couple”. The cost will come up as $12.50 for each individual.
This covers the meal, childcare, and any materials for the teaching.
This is a four part series on the early years of parenting, with teaching especially geared towards those with children from newborn to 5th grade. Each of the four nights will contain different content, which builds on the previous nights, but they can also be done as stand alone events, so come to all, or just come to one!
Childcare is included in the cost of the evening, so bring the kids along! A snack will be provided for them while they’re here (so please make sure they eat dinner beforehand), and check-in will begin at 6:15pm, 15 minutes prior to start of each event.
If you have any questions feel free to call or email: 847-398-7005 ext. 1122 or [email protected]
September 29th, 2017: What on Earth are we supposed to be doing??
Often in the busyness of life we lose site of the purpose of family and parenting. Without a clear focus on our purpose it can be even harder to know what to do and how to respond when things get tough.
On September 29th, we’ll be learning about the ultimate purpose of parenting and how that clarity can bring more joy and fulfillment in our role as fathers and mothers.
October 27th, 2017: Dealing with Discipline.
As time has gone by this area has become increasingly difficult to navigate. When things are hard or confusing, it is sometimes easier to overlook or ignore, but doing so in the matter of discipline is a tragedy. God has rich truths associated with this topic that show us a deeper aspect of His character and give us wisdom on how to mirror His ways in our lives as parents.
On October 27th this will be the focus of our time as we search out God’s mind on the role of discipline in our families.
January 19th, 2018: What to watch out for…
Parents are people too, and so, they make mistakes. But there is one mistake that can lead to devastating results, and all parents must be on the lookout for it!
On January 19th, we’ll be engaging with this truth and discovering what to watch out for, and how to avoid it.
February 23rd, 2018: When Doctrine Meets Parenting!
We don’t always think of doctrine when we think of parenting, but if we are not encompassed on every side by God’s words and ways, then our efforts to parent our children will be missing its very foundation.
So on February 23rd, we’ll be learning how doctrine undergirds every area of parenting.
