Family Resources


It can be hard to raise kids. No one around here is pretending it isn't.

But it can also be thrilling, and your best life experience ever. Right now, you have the chance to deeply impact your kids, and we have the chance to partner with you and help out. We care about your kids, and we care just as much about you.

Above all, we strive to create a place for your kids to have fun and grow spiritually with Jesus. So we use some jaw-dropping and eye-popping experiences to show kids God loves them. And we make sure they feel safe and secure at the same time. Age appropriate games, activities, skits, songs and videos are all part of a typical hour during the weekend experience.

Parents are the single most influential people in teens’ lives. Period. So our biggest desire is to partner with you, whatever way we can, to point them towards God. So you may ask how to go about doing that? Bring them to the weekend experience. You can drop them off, or stay and talk to us about what you’re thinking.

If you are an adoptive/foster parent, or want to be one, we have a community for you. CLICK HERE for more information.
