Parenting Groups


Mom's Class

The Mom's Class works through "Discipline Them, Love Them" – a DVD series taught by Kathy Crosby that brings practical wisdom from biblical principles, and breakout groups help to support mothers as they apply these principles to their parenting. 

The purpose is to help mothers become rooted in biblical principles of love and discipline so that they can be better equipped to give their children the balance of love and limits they need in order to raise kids who grow up into responsible adults capable of making wise choices. This class is usually taught in the Fall on Tuesday mornings.


The Parent Connection is a book-club-format group that works through Love and Logic Magic for Early Childhood by Jim & Charles Fay. Cheryl Matamoros leads this group to help anyone that cares for younger children to develop important and practical skills in their parenting. Taught by Cheryl on an occasional basis.

Courageous Parenting

Courageous Parenting is a small group experience designed to help parents develop a loving and influential relationship with their teen. The group uses the book Courageous Parenting by Dave Hutchins. Taught by Ron & Kathy Belisle on an occasional basis.
