 Hi Friends,

Our Family Ministry team wants to equip you to help every child in your family to be growing in a faith of their own. While we try to do that in a multitude of different ways, we do think gathering together as a tribe of parents is helpful and beneficial every once in a while. Considering how much of our time and energy goes into parenting, it’s actually surprising how little we spend time intentionally considering where we’ve been and where we are going as parents and as a family.

However, we have a chance for you to do that coming up, and I wanted to extend a personal invitation to you to join us. The Parent Summit will be Saturday, February 23 from 9:00am-3:00pm at Calvary, and I am legitimately elated that we get to enjoy this event together!

Hello All!

First of all, I hope you are planning to join us for The Parent Summit this next Saturday, March 17 from 9:00a-1:00p! Our focus this year is “Parenting On Purpose,” and we will be striving to provide practical and encouraging opportunities for parents of kids across the phases – from diapers to diplomas, as I like to say. We’ll have a wide array of speakers and topics. For more information, see the poster included at the bottom of the email. Please note that 1) lunch is provided with you $5 fee, you can sign up online, and we cannot provide childcare at this time (but we think this one is worth a sitter!). To register, go to; click: resources, news.

Secondly, I want to introduce you to an opportunity that could help grow your parenting skills and help your family fall more in love with Jesus. We call it Dynamic Partnerships. 

A Dynamic Partnership (or DP) is a formal partnership that families can choose to enter into that includes a series of strategic conversations, self-analysis, goal-setting, and reflection for parents. The process is mostly asynchronous with the opting-in family controlling most of the schedule. The process includes three assessments (online), a conversation with a DP leader, a conversation with a “Next Phase Family” (parents who have recently passed through the parenting phase you are currently in), and a few more pieces.

Would you be interested in learning more about Dynamic Partnerships?
