What’s Your Summer Plan?

Be intentional this summer about your Kids Ministry…

What’s your plan this summer?

1. Faith at Home. Look for family devotional ideas from House of James, or video teaching from RightNowMedia using your free Ross Road account. Find helpful ideas here at www.RossRoadKids.com on how you can be intentional parents in your discipleship.

2. Every Sunday we gather together as one big family at 10am. Our Fall Kick Off Sunday will be September 11th.

Summer Preschool begins July 3rd! (Operating by police checked volunteer parents and regular teachers on rotation.)

Kids Worshiping in the Pew! Parents, help yourself to the Celebrating Sunday Note Sheet in the foyer to help disciple your children in listening to the Word preached. Every summer we look forward to the growth experienced as one big family as we worship with Grade 1 and up in the main gathering! Embrace this opportunity with your kids. Two keys to remember about your young children in church…

  • They understand more than you think they do.
  • They retain more than you think they do.

Enjoy His presence this summer as you grow as a family!

Parenting in the Digital Age



I just enjoyed reading this blog post book review and am going to have to read this book! I’ve had more and more people say to me that they’ve lost friendships over this… It’s also affecting our parenting…

–Pete Scazzero

A great book is so powerful that you stop reading, lower the book, and simply linger in the words for a moment. You ask God, “What might you be saying to me through this?” Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age by Sherry Turkle, was one such book for me…

What do you tell your kids about worship?

what-does-worship-look-likeOur morning had held way too many “hurry up”s and “he did it”s, but silence reigned in our van on the way to school. I’d already delivered my morning speech about how we could have left the house more quickly, and I suspected that I sounded like the “wah, wah, wah” teacher from a Charlie Brown cartoon.

Bring out the Best in your Kids


Bring the best out of those you love the most by creating an atmosphere of grace.

Too much of today’s Christian parenting is based on fear: fear of the world . . . fear of America’s liberal culture . . . fear of other parents’ and the church’s opinions. Best-selling author Dr. Tim Kimmel says fear, “is an excellent way to wreck your kids.”

Grace based parenting, on the other hand, relies on God’s love, replicates His forgiveness and commitment to His children, and displaces fear as a motivator for every behaviour…

God’s Not Dead 2


I took my youngest (Gr 5) to this movie a few weeks ago as I was given special VIP Preview tickets. He loved it!! He’s always been one wrestling with evidence and has read all of Lee Strobel’s books for kids. If your Grade 5 (and older) child is a deep thinker with tons of questions, they will love it! It is predictable but yet powerful.
