Partnering with Parents

 

The raising children is mingled with joy and sorrow, ease and effort, visible and unseen rewards, and with keeping the right perspective that it is unto the Lord. Mount Vernon seeks to be a faithful partner with all those who are responsible for raising children.

 

The church being "God's household" is a fitting image (1 Timothy 3:15). As rebellious sinners we were all once orphaned from God the Father. But by His grace shown to us through Jesus Christ, we are adopted as His sons and daughters. As God's family, we are given spiritual fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, and sisters in the local church. This spiritual family exists, in part, to equip earthly fathers and mothers (married, divorced, single, or just guardians) to raise their children to fear, love, and obey "the LORD with all (their) heart and soul" (Deut. 10:12).

 

Below are some resources we use and encourage in our Partnering with Parents.  

 

 

 

Fighter Verse

This is our monthly Scripture memory verse used for children and adults to help us fight the fight of faith.

March Church-wide Verse

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day.

I Corinthians 15:3-4a
