Families

Unruly. Out of control. Disrespectful. Sweet as honey. Quietly manipulative. Regular kid. Destructive. Quite good, actually. Loud, very loud. Deceptive. Rambunctious. Cutest thing in the world.

Children’s behavior varies widely, sometimes within minutes. How do we train them in the way they should go? What can parents do now that will help their kids be godly later? How does discipline change as young children grow into teenagers?

Join us for our next Parent Workshop on September 29 as we focus on the principles and practices of godly discipline. Learn from a community of fellow parents trying to crack the discipline code. Be encouraged that you are not alone, and see a way forward through the principles of discipline found in God’s Word. Register below.

Childcare provided through 5th grade

Families Ministry

Families are the building blocks of church and society. At Mountain Creek, we desire to honor families and come alongside them to follow Jesus together. We aim to provide helpful resources to build up our families in Christ, such as:

Parent Workshops: Throughout the year we offer six 90-minute workshops that address key topics that parents face in raising their children. Recent topics include technology and the family and stress, anxiety, and depression in kids and teens.

Marriage Conference: We hosted our first marriage, Different By Design, in May 2019. Southeastern Seminary’s Dr. Larry Lyon and his wife Stephanie led the weekend. Audio and video of the conference sessions are be available: SESSION 1, SESSION 2, Q&A. Click here for a list of suggested marriage resources.

Parent Commissioning and Child Dedication: Each Mother’s Day we commission parents to raise their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord, and parents dedicate children to the Lord. Prior to this ceremony, participating parents attend at Parent Foundations class.

Resources: We love to point people to helpful family resources, such as books, articles, videos, and podcasts. And, when we are able, we try to give away good books for free. If you are looking for a helpful resource on a certain topic, feel free to ask one of our pastors, and they will either give you something or point you in the right direction.
