Family Faith Pathway


Family Ministries Webinar

Fostering Spiritual Practices in Children and Students

Sunday, January 24, at 1 p.m.

This webinar is not just for parents; if you know a child, you are influencing a child! Register to receive a series of videos from the NCC Family Ministries team, providing practical tips and resources for incorporating spiritual practices into the rhythms of your daily life. This will look different depending on the age of the child, but we’ll have options for all ages. You are a child’s spiritual champion, and we want to partner with you and help equip you for the role. Our Family Faith Pathway is designed for that purpose, and the webinar focuses on step two of the pathway. Register here to receive a link to the webinar.

Booklets for each step:

As a parent, you are the primary influencer in your child's faith. But we, as a church, are committed to partnering with you along the journey of raising your kids to own their faith. One way we can support you is by providing a framework to guide you through each stage of your child's spiritual development. This framework is the Family Faith Pathway.
