The primary focus of Family Ministries is to help parents both understand and fulfill their biblical duties to spiritually lead and nurture their children as gifts from God (Psalm 127:3; Deuteronomy 6:5 – 9; Ephesians 6:1, 4). Working collaboratively with parents, the staff and leadership of the Family, Youth, and Children’s Ministries seek to nurture and encourage the entire family.
Our families represent the amazing diversity of both Chicago and The Moody Church. They come from varied ethnicities, different economic and educational backgrounds, and unique family and faith histories. Our programs are open to everyone, including single parents, blended families, grandparent assisted families, and those who don’t worship regularly at the church. All are welcome!
PARENTING CLASS: PARENTING FOR LIFE
Wednesdays beginning September 14, 6:45–8:00pm in Room 108
No matter the age or stage of your kids, every parent will benefit from joining the Parenting Class, facilitated by Pastor Bill Bertsche and Bob and Linda Gunter. Using materials from a revised version of Ted Tripp’s Shepherding a Child’s Heart, we will identify and thoroughly explain parents’ biblical priorities, goals, challenges, fundamental roles, and rewards. The handbook is free, the discussion will be robust, and the truths and tips shared will positively change your family life God’s way!
