Parenting Conference

parenting conference

Join us for this weekend conference as Julie Lowe, counselor and faculty member from CCEF, talks about freedom: Freedom from the "ideal" family, parenting formulas, guilt, fear; and freedom to implement all that you know of a personal relationship with Christ and his family into your own family.

What will parents do?

Parents will attend Sessions 1 and 2 in the morning in the Worship Center with worship led by ISM students, then break for lunch. We will provide a boxed Chick-Fil-A lunch for $7 (available at registration) or you can bring your own or go off campus. Session 3 will be at 1pm in the afternoon and parents will be joined by the ISM teens for a joint parent/teen session. Following Session 3, the parents will have an opportunity for Q&A with Julie. Parents can then return on Sunday morning at 9am for a final session with Julie in the Gym. The conference will be recorded but not live streamed. Recordings will be made available to those registered in the weeks after the conference.

Note: Our childcare for children ages birth through Kindergarten (five years old) is full.

What will children birth-6th grade do?

It’s time for the winter version of VBS – WBS (Winter Bible School)! Children birth through Kindergarten will be taken care of in our nursery rooms with activities, snacks, and lots of care. 1st-6th grade will participate in their own WBS from 9am-12pm that looks a little like summer VBS. There will be games, singing, crafts, snacks, and Bible lessons, all led by the ISM students and their small group leaders. Children will be picked up at 11:45am, and we encourage you to take advantage of the Chick-Fil-A lunch option or even pack your own to spend time with others during lunch. Parents are welcome back for the third session at 1pm on Saturday afternoon, but no childcare will be provided. Childcare and space in the WBS is limited and available on a first come/first served basis.

What will teens do?

Serve the church, spend time with friends, and hear from the speaker! Teens can sign up to help serve at the morning WBS acting as teen leaders, running games, crafts, and more. Lunch will be provided for the teens who serve and after lunch, teens join their parents for Session 3 of the conference. Following the session, teens will head to the gym for game time. Did we mention all of this is free to any teen who serves for the morning?
