Tuesdays: January 13 – 7:30 pm
Refresh: for mothers of infant and preschool age children. Give Them Grace by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson.
All of us want to raise good kids. And we want to be good parents. But what exactly do we mean by “good?” And is “being good” really the point?
Mother-daughter team Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson contend that every way we try to make our kids “good” is simply an extension of Old Testament Law―a set of standards that is not only unable to save our children, but also powerless to change them.
No, rules are not the answer. What they need is grace.
We must tell our kids of the grace-giving God who freely adopts rebels and transforms them into loving sons and daughters. If this is not the message your children hear, if you are just telling them to “be good,” then the gospel needs to transform your parenting too.
Give Them Grace is a revolutionary perspective on parenting that shows us how to receive the gospel afresh and give grace in abundance, helping our children know the dazzling love of Jesus and respond with heartfelt obedience.
Facilitated by Tami Harrison, this group will be meeting at the church in the Student Ministry Center. There will not be childcare. Please contact Tami for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost for book $10.00.
