Family Ministries

For Parents

No one has a stronger influence on children's faith than their parents. We bring parents together to learn from one another and support one another.

Parents Community Group

This community group welcomes parents of all ages and stages who want to explore together how to raise faithful, Christian families in New York City. We meet once a month, on Sundays, at 9:30 am in the LaDane Williamson Christian Education Center. This fall we diving into the book The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch. Drawing on in-depth research from the Barna Group, Crouch takes readers beyond the questions of what, where and when, challenging them instead to answer provocative questions like Who do we want to be as a family? and Does our use of technology move us closer or further from that goal? We will meet on Sept. 17, Oct. 15, Nov. 19 and Dec. 10. No need to sign up, just show up!

Parents Community Night

Twice this fall, we invite parents to drop the kids in the LaDane Williamson Christian Education Center and come upstairs for an evening of hearty appetizers, drinks and fellowship. Our gathering on Sept. 29 will include a conversation on stewardship led by Jaime Staehle, director of Christian education. On Nov. 17, Christian educator Jenna Campbell helps us to understand parenting as a spiritual practice. Details and registration are in the right-hand column of this page.
