Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. - Deuteronomy 6:4-9
God has called parents to be the primary faith caregiver for their children. We at First Baptist Church recognize this to be a huge and sometimes challenging responsibility. It is our desire to partner with parents as they live their responsibility to spiritually influence their children towards the ways of God and ultimately have a meaningful, fruit-bearing relationship with Jesus.
We have provided some family experience ideas for you as a family to carry out with your children. Each experience is age specific; from birth through their senior year in high school. The experiences prove intentional opportunities for parents to invest in the lives of your children with the truths of God's word.
