What is Family Ministries?
At Dayspring we proactively advocate for strong families with parents empowered and equipped to take primary leadership in their children’s spiritual journeys. We seek to intentionally integrate all generations of the church to strengthen connection and purpose for all ages, and help students transition to adulthood within the church body.
You are probably just as overwhelmed as we are. Sheltering-in-Place has certainly made life complicated, hasn’t it?
If you are parents of school-aged children, congratulations. Now you are a homeschool parent with all that it entails. A little bit teacher, principal, counselor, recess buddy…oh, and still a parent.
We’re hearing that there are two extremes of employed people these days…underemployed and overemployed….working too little or too much. There doesn’t seem to be much in-between.
And, don’t get us started on the cumulative effects of isolation. Some of us weren’t wired that way (although you introverts are probably having a great time…unless you don’t have any alone time because you are constantly surrounded by your family).
The Family Ministries team is right there with you. We began preparing for Reading the Bible for Life several months before the Coronavirus struck. At that time, it was a face-to-face weekly meeting.
Transitioning to an online format, while managing our personal craziness, has proved a little more challenging than we thought.
So, with a little egg on our face (this is not like us normally…really), we have made the decision to postpone Reading the Bible for Life until we can make an online version with the quality needed to satisfy everyone…or, until we can meet face-to-face again, whichever comes first. We anticipate a June start date.
Thank you for your patience. We’ll keep you posted as we have updates.
Family Matters Class
As a parent, it's hard to know how to relate to our children and be the leader that God has called us to be in their lives. Family Matters is here to help us learn how to step up and be the leader our kids need in the ever-changing world we live in. Each session is designed to help equip you in connecting and conversing more deeply with your kids.
